Pawsome Love – Simon Says Stamp Love You More Release
There’s a new release up at Simon Says Stamp called Love You more, and I was sent the Pawsome Love set to create something fun! And I did! Lookie:
This card had a unique action! Lookie:
To make this card I had to create a mirror image of the kitty with the heart balloon. To do this I stamped the image once on card stock using my MISTI and then stamped on my Waffle Flower Water Media Mat using a Fiskars Stamp Press. That helped me stamp straight up and down so that I didn’t smear the image. Then I laid another piece of card stock over the media mat and gently rubbed to transfer the image. I then colored both images with Copic markers and cut them out with my Tim Holtz mini snips. I added some double-sided adhesive and put some silver DMC thread down the middle of the heart and kitty of the non-mirror image. I had stamped a spare mirror image and used this to line everything up so that the balloon and kitty were the right distance apart. I then adhered the colored and trimmed mirror image over the top of the thread, making a double-sided image.
I created an open circle window in the card front using Hero Arts Infinity Circle Nesting dies including a liner piece for the inside. I adhered the silver thread to the top and bottom of the window on the inside of the card front and created a liner piece out of lighter weight white card stock to cover up the ends of the thread.
To make the kitty spin, before you put the card in the envelope, twist the images around and around until there is a tight twist to the thread between all the images. Carefully close the card so that the images remain twisted. When your recipient opens the card, the images will spin!
I added some red gingham paper to the front to dress it up a little and added the greeting stamped on Simon’s Audrey Blue card stock along with a couple of tiny Doodlebug Design Tiny Heart sprinkls. Pawsome Love is a sweet set, and I’m looking forward to making more cards with it!
