This is Jasleen, back with my guest designer post for this month. And Valentine’s Day being just around the corner, I thought of sharing a few love –themed card ideas using a couple of stamp sets by CrafTangles the team sent me- one is ‘Love is in the Air’ and another one is ‘Always Yours’.
Both of these stamp sets are sentiment-based, so I simply chose a sentiment and co-ordinated them with some free-hand watercoloured images, as shown in the first two cards below:
for the first time. I used Gansai Tambi
water colours here. The sentiment ‘you are my sunshine ‘ from ‘Always Yours’ set goes perfectly well with
I started by lightly drawing a heart shape along the edge of a 4 by 5 inches Brustro water colour paper, using a pencil. Then I added a water colour wash using Gansai Tambi in different shades of pink, trying to confine the colours within the pencil drawing. After letting it dry, I stamped the sentiment ‘LOVE’ from ‘Love is in the Air’ set using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed it using silver embossing powder, and stamped ‘always’ in versafine onyx black ink. I mounted this panel over a standard sized card base and finished off using some sequins and a Baker’s twine.
And the third card :
This one’s a clean and simple card that uses multiple sentiments from the ‘Love is in the air’ stamp set and that die cut heart is from Sizzix Bigz-Heartfelt set. The sentiments on the white card base were stamped using Memento ink-London fog, whereas the one on the black strip was heat embossed in white.
That’s all for now. I would love to know your views. 🙂
