Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month – You’ve Got a Friend Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Jenny’s Blog then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
For today I have made some cards using the stamp set. These make great sentiments for cards and useful for either feminine, masculine or children’s cards. I have used two different paper packs for these cards to show the versatility.
I have used the Balloon Ride Picture My Life products to create this card as well as papers from the Balloon Ride paper pack. For the sentiment I have stamped the image with Black ink on Ruby cardstock and then stamped again on some blue paper and then cut out the middle and adhered it to the centre of the image. I have done the same for the red/pink ribbon
I have used the pattern out of the Make it From Your Heart Volume 2 to make this card. This makes a lovely masculine card – especially with the moustache which I have stamped with chocolate ink onto Saddle cardstock and then cut out and placed over the original image which I have stamped using Sorbet ink. Finally in keeping with the French theme I have used my Cricut Artist cartridge to cut out the Eiffel tower from Chocolate cardstock which has been distressed with Slate ink.
For the other set of cards I have used Lollydoodle papers. I love the pink and greens in this paper set and I have also used some gorgeous pink glitter cardstock to add some extra bling.
For this card I have added some hearts cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the sentiment from the Artbooking cartridge. The butterfly is from the Artiste cartridge.
Here I have stamped the image in Outdoor Denim ink on Pear cardstock and fussy cut it out before I used foam tape to adhere to the White Daisy cardstock. I have used the a stamp from the Card Chatter – Sympathy set that just fitted in with this particular stamp.
For this card I have used sponge daubers to place the ink on the stamp. I have used Cotton Candy on the ‘Friend’ and Pear on the rest of the stamp. I am in love with the Flamingo dots. They add such a different dimension than the glitter gems. I am really pleased how it has turned out.
