For day 4, we are showcasing the Love Bots Stamp Set and coordinating die.
Do you remember when you were a kid and you were so excited to go to school on Valentine’s Day? That’s my inspiration today! I wanted something fun that kids can make themselves using this stamp set so I opted to do a colorful design that can easily be mass-produced.
To make the card, I stamped the images from the Love Bots Stamp Set on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Next, I used some rectangle dies from my stash and created a stencil on some acetate sheet. I used this stencil to ink up a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock with different colors of distress oxide inks. I adhered this panel on an A2-size notecard.
Since this is a “kid-friendly” card, I didn’t need to add foam adhesive to any of the images so I added them with liquid glue. I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that was die-cut using one of the banners from the A7 Banners & Frames die set that I heat-set with my heating tool. I used my white gel pen to add some stars and dots to the card for some whimsical touch. Here’s another look:
