here)! This round, I pulled out theme #11 - pink. When I think of pink, soft and sweet comes to mind, so I decided to use a few Lawn Fawn products.
I started by grabbing a piece of white cardstock and a piece of Let's Polka 12x12 pink striped paper and cut them out with a stitched rectangle die. I then used the largest scallop from Stitched Scalloped Borders die on the bottom of the cardstock panel. This cut out a cute scallop shape. Lastly, I ran the white panel through the Bigshot one more time and cut out two little hearts.
I stamped the adorable cup from Love You a Latte set just under the hearts. I quickly colored it in with Copics. The panel looked a bit bare, so I decided to make a quick colored background for it. I was very much inspired by Sandy Allnock, who is incredibly talented and skilled at coloring. She recently posted a video about achieving a watercolor look with Copics, and I wanted to do something similar. So, I went for a simple multi-color background with a bit of dotty texture. I didn't do enough blending to make it look like watercolor, really, but I enjoyed just playing around with color.
After the coloring was done, I created a card base out of Cashmere cardstock - a top-folding A2 base (4¼ by 5½"). I adhered the striped rectangle straight to the card. Then I added the cup panel with foam tape.
I had a piece of white cardstock left over, so I decided to make a sentiment panel with it. I simply lined up the stitched rectangle die and ran it through my Bigshot again. This gave me a tiny stitched rectangle, which was perfect for my sentiment. I stamped "i love you" from Love You Smore set in brown ink. I added the sentiment to the card with foam tape.
I wanted to add a very few small decorative touches. So, I took the small heart I'd cut out of the white panel and colored it in with a Copic marker. I adhered it next to the sentiment. I also grabbed three sequins from Avery Elle's Sugar blend and adhered them near the cup.
