The Love Bandit strikes again!!! I always laugh when I see this guy.
I used the I Heart Embossing Folder (EF-0014) and embossed a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock. Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I layered that onto a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card base.
Using the SnapShot Frames Dies (DI-0045), I cut out a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) card stock using the photo die. On Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) , I stamped some of the images from the Love Bandit (SS-0408) stamp set and then cut out the Love Bandit using the coordinating die (DI-0285). This set also comes in a bundle (BD-0207).
Using the Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077), I colored in the Love Bandit. For the roses, I colored those in using Bubble Gum (IP-0092) Silk and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097). After coloring in the hearts in his bag, I thought they needed a little sparkle, so using a Small Blending Brush, I added some Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to them.
The Heart images were stamped in Cranberry Bliss (IP-0049) ink.
Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085) I popped up the photo piece onto the card front and then popped up the Love Bandit as well.
I thought it still needed something so I added the red hearts from the Fire & Ice (AC-0346) Bloom Benefit. [What is a Bloom Benefit – they are items that you get for free with orders of $50 or more – see the catalog tabs on top and click on the on-line catalog. Both the mini and annual catalog contain Bloom Benefits and you can mix and match them. They are located in the beginning part of the catalog].
For the inside I used the same I Heart Embossing Folder (EF-0014) to emboss a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card panel.
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
