Hello fellow crafters!! Hope everyone is refreshed and ready to take on a brand new week. I know I am. I took a couple of weeks off to prepare for my notary exam and I just took the test last week so I’m back to share a new card with you! If you’d like to see the adorable “Down On the Farm” card I made for the last challenge I did, click here.
The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is Anything Goes. I’m not really sure what category this card would fall under. It’s not necessarily a Valentine’s Day card because it doesn’t say anything about Valentine’s. It’s not really a love card… Would it be a “like” card?? I don’t know. It’s a happy card though. I was super excited to use SSS’s January card kit so that’s exactly what I did!! This is definitely one of my favorite card kits. It had some really great elements to it. I LOVE the stamp set. As I said in my video, I love that there’s a couple of images that you can use for a sentiment or you could use to make a background. I chose to make a background with the ‘xoxo’ stamp.
I started out with some Tim Holtz watercolor paper and die cut my heart. Then after heat embossing my sentiment, I used a couple distress oxide inks to do some ink blending. When I was done with the heart, I quickly cut out another heart from vellum in the next heart size up. I moved on to the background which was super easy. I just picked out a nice gray ink and stamped the ‘xoxo’ image over and over.
I also used the gorgeous Distress Glitter Dust (also in the kit) to make a strip of glitter for the front of my card. Cut out a few little hearts, some SN clear glitter pen and a little glossy accents and we have a card!!
I love the little block words that also come in this stamp set. I thought this sentiment was super cute. There’s all kinds of possibilities.
We’d love for you to join us this week for Anything Goes over at the AFC blog. Just click here and I’ll take you right to where you need to go.
If you’re more of a visual person, like myself, below you’ll find a video so you can see exactly how I made it.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’ll see y’all next week!!
