I'm taking a break from holiday season crafting today, to share a couple of cute cards using the 'Love you Lots' Hostess stamp set. It is so easy to forget the wonderful Annual Catalogue full of great project ideas and products.
The 'Love you Lots' stamp set has 4 super cute images and 4 greetings. This stamp set is only $16.00 for clear mount when you place an order of $250 or more before postage. To remind you, here it is.
For my first card I have water coloured the frog with the slightly quizzical look on its face and popped him in a frame. I've added a couple of empty frames behind him for a fun geometric look. For the background I have embossed Sahara Sand card stock with the 'Brick Wall' embossing folder. For a quick way to give the wall dimension, I've gone over the 'grout' with my Chalk Marker.
The second card has lots of layers, but it all started with stamping the ladybugs and colouring them with a Stampin' Write marker - you can't get anything easier than that. I added the greeting at the bottom and then die cut with my Circles framelits. I then started at the bottom with the Watermelon Wonder card stock base to match the lady bugs and layered up the thick Whisper White embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder to keep the spotty theme going. Next, I added some interest with the layered Watermelon Wonder piece that has been scored every 1/4" using the Simply Scored Board. This is a simple way to add texture and interest to card stock. Another layer on top with the floral design from the versatile Designer Series Paper stacks, a banner and finally my ladybugs.
