Love You, Too Blog Hop

And oh what a release it is!! I am elated to be a part of Day 2 of Simon Says Stamp’s Love You and Love You, Too release!! Today I’m sharing a card with you that I made using the adorable Magnolia Cottage stamp set. I’m having some health problems at the moment so I only have one card to share with you for now, but as I’m able, I’ll be using a few other goodies from the Love You, Too release so stay tuned!! YouTube tutorial coming soon as well.

If you’re hopping along, you probably came from the lovely Lorraine Aquilina’s blog if not you may want to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog 

Be sure to check out Day 1 of the hop for so much more inspiration!! I’ve listed all of the supplies that I used to make this card, including links, at the bottom of this post. I also have some GIVEAWAY info. that I’ll share later in this post.

For my card, I started out on some copic friendly card stock and masked my way through stamping my image with my Misti 2.0. I wasn’t sure how well I’d be able to ink blend on this particular paper but I was pleasantly surprised when it blended just fine (I planned to just fussy cut it out if needed). After masking off my image, I ink blended Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide inks.

Before I unmasked everything, I splattered my background with some Liquid Stardust to give it some sparkle

I copic colored my image with colors that I thought would go well with the yellow and orange background. Once I was done with that I used a Rounded Rectangle Infinity die to give it nice rounded edges.

I attached my card front to a top folding card base. Then I added a little extra sparkle to the flowers with my Aqua Shimmer Pen. The background just wasn’t enough sparkle for me.

As a final embellishment, I added a few Assorted Moonshine Sequins and finished them off with just a touch of Nuvo Glitter Drops in Silver Moondust.
