Hugs {Sweet November Stamps}

Hi, crafty friends. Today is a very exciting day, because there’s a new release out from Sweet November Stamps, and Amy asked med to guest design. We have a blog hop happening over on Instagram, but I thought I’d share my first card here, as well.

The images I’ve chosen for my card are actually from the Sweet Easter stamp set, but I think they work well for other occasions too. I colored them in using my Copics, and diecut my panel into a circle using a die from the Stitched Circle STAX set from My Favorite Things.

I wanted a little bit of subtle interest to my background, and used the Garden Lattice dies from Honey Bee and die cut both the base and the top die (these are sold separately) twice from Stamper’s Select White cardstock from Papertrey Ink. By doubling up on each of the die cuts, I get lots of dimension.

I also die cut the word hugs from the Sending Big Hugs die from My Favorite Things. I die cut two layers from white cardstock and three layers from purple (Winter Wisteria from Papertrey Ink). The purple didn’t match my coloring, so I added BV02 to the top layer, that did the trick. I stamped my sub sentiment from the Bitty Thanks & Gratitude stamp set from My Favorite Things using Grapesicle ink, also from My Favorite Things, and adhered the strip directly to the diecut HUGS word.

I finished off the card by adding a few veneer butterflies, I thought they paired well with the butterfly on the bunny’s nose. The butterflies are from Wycinanka, and I added two Kort & Godt pearls to the center of each of the butterflies to form the body, and that finishes the card.

Simple, yet happy color palette for this card.
