Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me on my first Inspired By Stamping post and tutorial.
I’m here to show you a card that I made with the newly released Love Sentiments stamp set and share the steps and some tips along the way.
Here’s the card that I made:
Let’s get started on the steps.
- I started with a white card stock and cut it to 4” x 5.25”
- I will bw heat embossing the sentiment. So I prepped the panel with my home-made powder tool. I inked the ‘Love’ stamp with Versamark ink and then with VersaMagic Pink Petunia Chalk ink and stamped it on the card panel. Normally, I don’t get a good impression when I stamp with the chalk ink. Recently I learnt that, inking the stamp with Versamark ink first and then with the other ink, it gives a nice stamped image. This worked for me. I heat embossed the ‘love’ sentiment with WOW! Transparent Gloss embossing powder.
- I added the sentiment ‘NEVER FAILS’ below the word ‘love’ and heat embossed it in the same way.
- I stamped the cute heart flowers with leaves stamp along the border, with Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW! Transparent Gloss embossing powder
- I filled the space along the border with the little flower stamp and the leaves stamp and embossed them in clear as well.
- I inked the panel along the border, with the same Pink Petunia chalk ink, starting along the edges.
- Then I felt like it needed a little more color along the edges. So I inked the edges with VersaMagic Malted Mauve chalk ink and softened towards the center with Pink Petunia. I repeated this till I was satisfied with the color.
- Then I stamped the big heart and little heart from the stamp set near the sentiment and covered it with glossy accents. I also added a dot of glossy accents along the border wherever I wanted to add a sequin.
- Then placed the iridescent heart sequins from the Valentine’s Day Sequins on the glossy accent and pressed them down for a few seconds.
- I took my card base, cut and folded into A2 card base and placed this panel at an angle. Usually, before finally adhering every panel or embellishments on my card, I place them wherever I want and take a picture on my phone. If I’m not satisfied, I move it around and take pictures. That way, I can compare the pictures and decide on what I want to do.
- After adhering the panel to the card base using Scor-Tape, I flipped the card around and cut off the edges of the top panel that was hanging out of the card base.
Here’s another pic of the finished card:
That’s it! I hope you liked my card and the tutorial. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your day. Hugs, Berina
