You’re so sweet – card using Clearly Besotted “Simply Scrumptious” stamp set

You are so sweet card

Hello my dear crafty souls, Happy Valentines Day to you all. Hope you are able to give yourself a little crafty treat today :-)

The card I have for you today, also started as a part of coloring challenge and also is a lovey-dovey card. It says, “you’re so Sweet” :-)

I used Clearly Besotted Simply Scrumptious stamp set for this card. I used the strawberry vine / wreath image and stamped it off on printer paper first and without re-inking stamped on my Strathmore watercolor paper. This technique is called second generation stamping and it gives you very light color / almost no lines. I chose this effect so I could add color with my Zig Clean Clear markers and make it look almost painted and not stamped.

After I was happy with the wreath, I added strawberries and flowers. The stamps with bigger strawberry images had not been seasoned yet, so they did not spread the color evenly. I liked the effect which almost appeared to have some highlighting, so I went with it. When I touched those images with my Zig markers, I did not go over those places with highlights. I left them alone :-)

Next I stamped a sentiment from the same set in the middle of the wreath and a added few flowers.

Finally I die cut the piece with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle dies. To get the size I want, I used the die two times – die cut one side, moved the die and die cut from the other end.

I made a small boo-boo on one side of this piece, so I added a butterfly on top. This little image was heat embossed with white embossing ink and colored in with Zig Clean and Clear markers.  I also embellished each flower with a Doodlebug Lily White Glitter Sprinkle Epoxy sticker.

Finally I assembled the whole card on Simon Says Stamp 120 lb white cardstock by layering with some of the patterned papers from my stash.
