Hi, it’s Jeni with a beautiful card using the latest Stamp Of Approval box – Adoring You. I love keys! This had to be the first stamp set I used! There are four clear stamp sets, one red rubber stamp (a gorgeous scripty font style background) and one die in this box. The add on dies are for three of the stamp sets and a stand alone decorative tile die. I show an unboxing in the video which you can see by clicking HERE. Onto the card.
I stamp all the locks and keys in The Keys stamp set with Icing On The Cake ink then cut the stamped images apart. Leaving all the The Keys dies together I am able to line up the stamped image with the coordinating die. I use purple tape to hold them in place while I diecut them. I go into more detail about this on the video tutorial.
I white heat emboss the Love Notes background stamp and use Sugared Lavender ink to add the colour over the embossing. Start with the foam blending tool off the card and slowly and lightly bring it it onto the card to build up the colour. I love the Love Notes background and can see so many vintage distressed backgrounds coming up soon! I add the colour unevenly to make a nice vintage distressed look.
Sentiment & Finishing the Card
Arranging the keys on the background, I realise I have nowhere for the sentiment. I use the sentiment “Love Is The Key To Happily Ever After” and white heat emboss this on brown card. Add some foam tape to the sentiment strip and lightly push it down to pick up some of the locks and keys. With Tombow Mono Multi glue (with my precision tip) to adhere all the keys and locks down then trim off any overhang and adhere it to a card base.
