Yay I’ve kept to my resolution of posting on my blog before posting on Instagram – although it’s early days so let’s not get too excited!
Today I’ve created a card using the Lawn Fawn – How you bean conversation heart add on (bit of a mouthful I know!) set.
I’ve recently bought quite a few in this range and love how versatile they can be – I may be bombarding you with quite a few creations from this set! I’m a recent fan of Lawn Fawn and I’m totally hooked – I can’t get enough of their cutesy sets which are so easy to colour and coordinate so well with their whole range of products.
I stamped out a few of the heart clusters from the set onto my Papermill Direct white smooth cardstock and coloured them with my Spectrum Noirs.
I just used a two colour blend for all of these – The glossy accents I added on some of the hearts may make it seem that there are quite a few different colours of hearts but there are only four! These are the markers that I used for the colours – the DR1, DR3 for the red, CR2, CR4 for the light pink, GY1, GY2 for the yellow and OR2, OR3 for the orange. I stamped over the images with versafine as I had left my stamp in my Tim Holtz stamping platform and heat embossed with WOW clear gloss powder.
I cut out all my images with my Scan n Cut. I then took the MFT – Full of Heart stencil and using my Distress Oxides in the colours Candied Apple, Mustard Seed and Tattered Rose I inked up a patterned background. I took one of my Lawn Fawn – Lacy Border edge dies and die cut the edge of my background to give it a scalloped finish. I trimmed my background piece to 3 x 5 1/2 inch piece. I took a piece of coordinating patterned paper and die cut this to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch. I adhered both pieces onto an A2 sized ( 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch) cardbase made from Papermill direct red cardstock so they would overlap slightly.
I die cut a scalloped rectangle from a vellum adhesive sheet and added it to my panel – i then added my heart cluster with foam tape after I had added a few of the sentiments onto the hearts. I did two versions – which is great about this set – not all of the sentiments are for valentines. I cut the Lawn Fawn You’re Sweet border sentiment from some red foil adhesive card and added this just above the lacy edge.
I finished the card off with some pink moonstone sequins from Little things from Lucy’s cards and added some glossy accents to some of the hearts. I’m really pleased with how this turned out and hope to do a more masculine version – stay tuned!
Happy Crafting! Halima x
