Hi everyone, Mou here with today's blog hop project and a tutorial!


Before sharing all the details, let me first show you how cute the package I got from Waffle Flower was! Thanks Waffle Flower Crafts!


And now, back to the tutorial... to make this card, you'll need:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: MAGENTA, SCARLET RED, PINK MADDER, BLACK

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors 15 Count: BRIGHTS

Waffle Flower Crafts Stamp sets: Potted, PlantedMonochrome
Waffle Flower Crafts Dies: Tiny Die Trio
Others: die-cutting system; cardstock, twine, stapler, scissors, acrylic block, foam tape
Here are the steps.
Cling mount stamps to acrylic block, ink them with BLACK Stamper's Big Brush pens and stamp images on white cardstock.
Here are the stamped images I wanted to color.
Choose the Gelatos colors you would like to use.
Here are my colored images. It was fun to not worry about staying within lines as I am going to cut them out with scissors.
Cut and fold cardstock to make a 5.5" x 4.25" card. Color it with Lavender Gelatos. When dry, attach the cut out images with foam tape. Add details to pieces with Stamper's Big Brush pens.
Die cut the trio pieces.
Stamp 'For You' on cardstock using Stamper's Big Brush pen and cut out with scissors. Staple twine to card and attach diecut accents and sentiment with foam tape. To finish the inside of the card, stamp 'My World Is Just B & W Without You' from the Monochrome stamp set.
Hope you enjoyed today's project and tutorial! Have fun with the hop and good luck.
