Craftie Cafe - Love You Friend (Video)

Hi friends, today I'm here for Craftie Café and for today’s project I’ll be using the Taylored Expressions Succulent 1 Stamp Set along with the Huge Love Dies from My Favorite Things to create a word shaker friendship card.

To begin my card today, I cut down a piece of watercolour cardstock and used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform tool to stamp my large succulent image. I stamped it down in some black ink and clear heat embossed over the image, so the watercolour could be more easily contained. Once I stamped the image, I used my Mijello Misson Gold Watercolour Palette to colour my image. I used the packaging from the stamp set as colour inspiration for the image colouring. To colour it, I first laid down a base coat of green, dried it off slightly and then added the purple and blended it out a little. Once I finished colouring my image, I dried it completely and cut down my piece of paper to be even slimmer since the flower didn’t get stamped in the centre.

Next up, I used the Huge Love die to cut the word out of the centre of my flower. Once my piece was cut I was sure to keep the letters as I wanted to use them later. I adhered a piece of acetate on the back of my love die cut opening and then adhered the centre of the ‘o’ onto the front of the panel. Then, I added two layers of foam tape all along the back of my panel and around the word to section it off for the sequins. Next up, because I wanted the letters that were die cut before to be behind the sequins, I took another piece of paper, die cut the word once again as a template and adhered the letters in the exact position on a separate piece of paper. Then I knew when I laid over my coloured panel, the letters would line up. I then took some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and added a ton over the ‘Love’ word. I then removed the backers of foam tape from the panel and adhered it over top of the sequins to create my sequin shaker.

To finish up my card, I used the From The Heart stamp set from My Favorite Things and white heat embossed the sentiment ‘You Friend’ onto a strip of black cardstock. I then adhered it over my panel with foam tape also. The last step was to adhere my card together. I took a piece of purple cardstock and adhered a strip down onto my card base, then adhered my panel to the right-hand side. Lastly, I adhered some more sequins onto the base of my card also.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll catch you next time.
