Two Ways to Layer Stamping Using Lawn Fawn’s “Love You Smore” | CraftyPaws

With the arthritis flaring up in my hands, I have had to take a break from crafting for a few days, but I was finally able to create these anniversary CAS cards for my hubby (haven’t decided yet which to give him). I used the adorable bear stamp from the Lawn Fawn “Love You Smore” set, and I decided to try two ways to layer two bear images to create a couple of snuggling bears.

20150903_083901The first card I made in the traditional way, stamping the forward bear on the left with Tsukineko Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, masking it off with another stamped and fussy cut bear on a post-it note, and then stamping the second bear.  The second card I made using Tsukineko Momento Desert Sand and just stamping the bear twice.

20150902_182541I used the following 3 Copic colors to color up each bear (they are the same on both cards):
Lighter bear on left: E21, 23 and 25
Darker bear on right: E55, 57 and 59

The “i love you BEAR-Y much” pun was not included in the stamp set. I used free fonts that I found online (“Anjelika Rose” and “You Make Me Smile“) that I thought looked very similar to the fonts used in the stamp set sentiments and had such a sweet hand written quality (well, sweeter than my handwriting, but you know what I mean). I simply positioned the sentiment in the lower right of the card when I printed it so that the bears could kind of sit above the words. I used a VersaMarker to trace the words and used clear Recollections embossing powder to add a little shine and subtle texture to the sentiment.

Since I wanted to keep the cards monochromatic in earth tones, I used a peachy card stock for the card base onto which I layered the card front with double sided foam adhesive. I also added some more shine and texture with peachy colored enamel heart stickers from Cloud 9 Designs (I have had these in my stash for over a year so I was so happy I could finally use them!).  🙂

The following is a process video of making both cards:
