Today’s card features this versatile stamp set called True Love. This stamp set is perfect for a Just-Because card, Wedding, Valentine’s Day or Anniversary. This stamp set is great alone, or used with the other cute Brentwood Owl stamps or just about any other stamps you can pair it with. The possibilities are endless!
If you came here from Jeanette’s blog, then you’re in the right place.
I used the digital version of this True Love stamp set. I didn’t receive my stamps in time before this blog hop, because I live overseas (at least 10 months out of the year!). I am a novice when it comes to digital stamps so I couldn’t get the size right! I had to call my friend in Canada to help me figure it out. Her advice was to just use what I have printed so far and make it work. Such a great advice! I decided to just use my imagination and have fun. I really did! In fact, I had so much fun I got carried away!
True Love Stamp Set (I used the Banner image and resized it so I can fit Ruby inside)
Ruby and a Martini Stamp Set (I cut-out the martini glass)
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Copic Markers to color the banner, Ruby and the ladybug
Sahara Sand Card Stock
Sahara Sand Stamp Pad
Wood Stamp for the background
Stylus to give the flowers some dimension
Glossy Accents to make Ruby’s eyes pop
Rhinestones and Pearl
Adhesive (also used foam adhesive to pop Ruby up)
This first card below is super detailed. I used my punches and other dies to create a scene for Ruby, the Owl. I stamped my sahara sand card base with the woodgrain stamp using sahara sand ink for a tone-on-tone look. I stamped Ruby using my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her using my Copics. I also used glossy accents to make her eyes pop. The photo didn’t do justice on how beautiful the colors really are. I then colored the banner image also using my Copics, but the ink smudged a little on the pink flower images. It must have been because of my inkjet printer or because I didn’t have any Copic-friendly card stock. This was challenging! To fix this problem, I decided to add punched flowers to create more dimension. I think it turned out so beautiful!
The second card is very simple, but creates a huge impact in my opinion. I just love the sentiments that Jessica has included in this stamp set. I wanted to highlight it in a way that it stands out! Sometimes less is more!
True Love Stamp Set
Smoky Slate Card Stock
Brick Wall Textured Impression Embossing Folder
Planter Die with Flowers
Picket Fence Die
Leaf Flourish Die
I gathered all of my card stock and cut the pieces using the dies to create my scene for the sentiment. Once I had everything laid out, I dry-embossed my card base using the Brick wall TIEF. I positioned the sentiment on the die-cut window piece and purposely covered the word “love” in the beginning of the sentiment, so I can use the LOVE die-cut piece that I highlighted with Diamond Stickles to make it pop.
I adhered the picket fence, and then proceeded to adhere the window, followed by the planter and the flowers. I thought it needed some sort of greenery so I decided to die-cut the leaf flourish and adhered it to the card. What do guys think? Do you like the first or the second card?
