Hello and welcome! Today I'm using Miss Ink Stamp's Bubbles stamp set to create a slimline Valentine.
To make the card:
- I die cut a scalloped panel and grass line out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and a green cardstock (sorry, I don't know the brand) respectively, using Trinity Stamp slim line card dies. I wanted large bubble letters and found a bubble font from Adobe (you can register for Adobe and do a trial to get it free here) that I had pre-printed onto the Neenah cardstock prior to die cutting.
- I printed the same sentiment onto masking paper and fussy cut all the letters out. I offset the sentiment a little bit because I knew that I would have the fox on the right hand side. I then ink blended with three distress oxide inks (even thought I only show 2 in this picture)- at the end I felt some pink was needed. I used dried marigold, scattered straw and some spun sugar.
- I made the bubble font have a bubble quality to them by using copics R00 and BG0000 very sparingly on the edges. The fox was colored with copics YR24 & YR27; the raccoon with copics 100, W3 & N4 (I put W3 over N4 to make it a bit warmer grey); I added YG67 over the grass tips; I used W00 on the mouse, the snail was C3 & C5. Finally I added some glitter onto Neenah cardstock and die cut several large and small hearts.
