Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, and today I’m sharing another fun card using the fabulous February Moodboard. It is bright and full of cheery images and lots of cherries too! There is still plenty of time for you to head over to my earlier Color Challenge Blog Post, and enter your card using the inlinkz button, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink online store.
I’ve been on a mission to use all the adorable mice sets from Waffle Flower Crafts that I purchased this fall and these ice cream eating cuties from the Sweet Ice Cream set have been calling my name! I also find myself wanting to try different styles of cards lately, and I always love the mini scenes that story board dies create, and since I have rarely used mine, I thought it was time to get it out.
I started by cutting some rich red card stock with my Lawn Fawn Peekaboo Backdrop and cutting it again from some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I used some bright lime green scraps of cardstock to cut some little grassy hills using the Grassy Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts. I trimmed them to be the same size as the little squares. Next, I inkblended spun sugar and picked raspberry distress oxide inks onto each square of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I splattered with clean water, white ink, and silver ink, then glued down the little grass strips on the squares.
Next, I stamped all of my images using grey River Rock Ink from Lawn Fawn, then colored them in using shads of pink, raspberry, red, and gray. After die cutting the images I highlighted them with tiny small white dots. I placed the die cut squares back into the white frame and secured from behind wit washi tape. Then I carefully glued the red frame over the top, using liquid glue. I adhered my images into the spaces then decided to add a few more images from the Waffle Flower Grow Happiness stamp set. I used a couple of small flowers and the cutie holding some tulips to fill in some of the empty spaces. I heat embossed you’re sweet into a gray cardstock word bubble and added a heart.
Once everything was in place, I finished off the design by adding a sprinkling of silver sequins and tiny stars. I had originally cit the letters fro the word sweet from silver cardstock for the front, but it was difficult to see, so I decided to add them into the card, along with the sentiment from the stamp set, “You’re as sweet as Ice Cream”.
