Today is spring-like here in Idaho. The birds are singing and the sun is shining, for the moment. I want to share a super-fun thank you card I made using Lawn Fawn's Love You Tons stamps. I won these adorable stamps from MarkerPOP. (THANKS, Lawn Fawn and MarkerPOP!!!) As you see I changed out the sentiment a bit. I did stamp surgery on the "Love you tons" which was all in one line by cutting the Love you part off. That way I could stack it to make it say "Thank you tons" with Lil' Inker's Rainbows and Clouds Sentiments. I think the fonts look great together, don't you? And...it emphasizes the "tons" humor, too. :)
These little elephants are totally adorable as is, but I wanted to amp up the cuteness factor by piecing them with some whimsical paper. I used some from K & Co. I stamped them in black and then fussy cut them out.
For the heart wand that the sweet fellow in the lower left is holding in his darling little trunk, I used the exclamation point stamp in the set for the stick and also the little heart stamp....stamped in black and heat-embossed. I drew in the little bow ends with a black Sakuro Glaze gel pen. (Yes....I actually did something free-hand...eeek!! That pretty much approaches the upper limit of my free-hand abilities. Ha.) I think the wand turned out just super-cute.
I did some faux-stitching around the heart with Sakuro Gelly Roll Moonlight gel pen. I added a sheer ribbon bow and mounted it all on a black card. The pink and white cardstock are DCWV. The black is Core'dinations.
Hope you think this is cute, too! I would LOVE for you to comment on this card......and I would LOVE for you to become a follower using the app on the sidebar.
Don't forget to let me know what your pets are doing lately. I love to talk about our sweet fur-kids. :)
Have a lovely week!!
