Sending Hugs and Kisses

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!!

It’s TaeEun here today with a Valentine’s Day card. I combined the beautiful floral image from Coming Up Peonies stamp set with the lips from Smooched stamp set to make today’s card šŸ™‚ .

I started off by stamping the middle sized lips from Smooched stamp set on a watercolor cardstock. I left the stamp in the MISTI tool and stamped the lips again on my white cardbase in Red Sangria Hybrid ink. To add more shine on the lips I clear heat embossed it.Ā  I then stamped the floral image from Coming Up Peonies on the watercolor cardstock after masking the previously stamped lips inclusive the area around the lips.

I watercolored the peonies in purple – I used blue violet, red violet and pink tone. To make the background more vibrant I colored the background in Cerulean Blue and Violet Color Burst powders. I splattered white opaque ink on the background and let the panel dry.

I cut the lips on the colored panel using the coordinating die and cut the panel slightly smaller than A2 size using Double Stitched Rectangle die. I then foam mounted the panel onto the cardbase on which I stamped the red lips so that the lips peeking through the die cut window of the colored panel.

For the sentiment I used Penned Sentiments and Basic Banners set. I silver heat embossed the banner and stamped the sentiment in Noir. I then cut the banner using theĀ Coordinating die. I stamped a smaller lips from Smooched set in Red Sangria ink on a scrap of white cardstock, clear heat embossed and die cut it, and adhered it on the right end of the banner.Ā  “sending” was stamped directly on the colored panel. The sentiment banner with the small lips was foam mounted onto the card. I added one red sequins from Valentine Icing Couture Mix on the left corner to balance the two red lips on the right side and scatteredĀ  a few Glass Slippers sequins to finish off the card.
