Wanted for Stealing Hearts|Love Bandit

The Love Bandit strikes again!!!   I always laugh when I see this guy.

Love Bandit3

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.

Love Bandit4

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].

Love Bandit

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.

Happy Birthday

Another great card from FSJ Presents/FSJ Live using the Storybook Occasion Stamp Set (SS-0538).  

Happy Birthday Lamb

On a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) card stock, adhere 2 pieces from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  Then using the Border Basics Die (DI-0144), cut a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) to adhere over the seam where the 2 pieces of the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) meet.  Add a piece of Special Day Organza Ribbon (AC-0316) and tie the bow to the left.  Make a triple bow out of the Bubble Gum Thread (AC-0130) and adhere it to the Organza bow by using about a 5″ piece of Bubble Gum Thread to tie them together.   This panel will get popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0085) onto a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Using the Treat Label (DI-0037) cut out a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) card stock. Then using the Journey Circle Dies (DI-0039) cut out a piece Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  Run the Whip Cream piece through the Layered Scallops Embossing Folder (EF-0018).  Pop up the Whip Cream circle onto the Catalina Splash label and pop that up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085) for both.

Added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts to the lambs fur.

You will stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a strip of Whip Cream (CS-0040).  This piece will be slipped into the Photo Pin Element (AC-0103) and pushed into one of the Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Stamp the lamb in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of  Whip Cream (CS-0040) and cut out using Details Pro Shears (TO-0063).  Color the grass area using watered down Fresh Forest Liquid Color (IP-0131) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097).  The balloon you will color in with Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092) and a Small Blending Brush.  You can add a little Bubble Gum Silk to the lamb’s cheeks but they should be very a faint pink.

Be Mine

The images from the Storybook Occasions Stamp Set (SS-0538) are so adorable!!  I think they would look really cute on a baby card or baby shower decorations.

This card was fairly easy and really fun to make. It was one of the four projects that were part of the last FSJ Presents/FSJ Live.

Be Mine Bunny

Using the I Heart (EF-0014) embossing folder, emboss a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and then add some Black Licorice Silk (IP-0041).  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) adhere it to a Fresh Forest (CS-0011) card base.

Happy Anniversary (using two Step stamping)

Here is a quick Anniversary card that I put together using the Summer Rose (SS-0345) stamp set.  Such a beautiful stamp set.  This stamp set uses the two step stamping technique.  I love the way this technique looks using the Summer Rose stamp set.

Happy Anniversary
Happy Anniversary using the Summer Rose Stamp Set

Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock was used for the card base and the top panel is Butter Cream (CS-0006).  I cut another piece of Butter Cream for the inside as well.

The rose was stamped using Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and then the detail of the rose was stamped using Candy Apple (IP-0017) ink.  I love how realistic the rose looks using those colors.  The leaves were done the same way but using stamped with Limeade Splash (IP-0019) and Fresh Forest (IP- 0013).  The sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice (IP-) ink.  The sentiment comes from the Bird Melody (SS-0496) stamp set (that also comes in a bundle with matching dies).  I love the font on the sentiments from this set.  So elegant.

I finished off the card by adding some Bubble Gum (IP-0092) and Sparkle (IP-0126) Silk.  Wrapped the card with Candy Apple Twine (AC-0266) and added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Two-Stepping!!
