Cocoa Sends Love
Today Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) is releasing two brand new clear stamp sets, Cocoa Sends Love (designed by Korin Sutherland) and the Creative Worship Give Praise (designed by Jennifer Rydin).
We are highlighting a few designs for the new release on the SNSS Blog and SNSS FB Page- I hope you will take the time to stop by and check out the wonderful inspiration from the SNSS Creative Team.
I decided to play along with the SNSS Cocoa Sends Love Clear Stamp Set and create a quick, fun card!
To create this card:
1). Ink the SNSS Cocoa Sends Love image with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock.
2). Color with image with water-based markers using a water brush and ink direct to the image, add glossy accents to the hearts. Fussy cut the image and mount onto a piece of black cardstock, fussy cut the image once more.
3). Die cut a heart from white and black cardstock, split the black heart and layer behind the white heart allowing a bit of the black die cut to show as a frame.
4). Die cut a larger black oval and a smaller patterned oval using stitched oval dies, layer together.
5). Use a heart embossing folder to emboss a piece of white and light pink cardstock, layer together, add the white crocheted lace and 5/8” black satin ribbon to cover the seam.
6). Mount the background panel onto black cardstock, trim and mount onto the rose card base.
7). Mount the oval focal image onto the card front with dimensional foam.
8). Heat emboss the sentiments from SNSS Cocoa Sends Love Clear Stamp Set with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, trim and create the banner points before adding to the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
I had fun designing this card and hope I have inspired you to create something this weekend! Hugs and have a blessed week, sweet friends!
