Love is in the Air

Today I wanted to share a card that I made with my Cricut & Peachy Keen Stamps. I was inspired to make this card after visiting Andrea's blog Work in Progress back in June. I really fell in love with the digital stamp she used, but couldn't find it for purchase on the designer's website. So I decided I would use my Peachy Keen stamps and my Cricut and make it myself.

This was my first attempt at adding detail to a Cricut cut with pens and stamps. I used a Gelly Roll White Pen to color the eyes. And a Black Le Pen (Hobby Lobby) to add the dashes and dots to the umbrella.

I think it turned out pretty cute. It needs a little something else, but I wasn't sure what yet. I may end up adding three brads along the corner of the white panel the umbrella is on for some added dimension.

Inside I stamped a Unity Stamp Company Sentiment "Love is in the Air".

Supplies Used:
Blue & Pink Cardstocks by Close to My Heart (unsure of exact colors)
Distress Pink Patterned Paper by Junkitz
White Cardstock Georgia Pacific
Black Cardstock from Hobby Lobby Open Stock papers
Face Stamp Peachy Keen Stamps PK-493 Everyday Character Face Parts 3" to 4"
Umbrella cut at 3" from Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge
Hearts cut at 1/4" from George Cricut Cartridge

Hope you enjoyed this fun project today, have a good one and try to CREATE SOMETHING!!!
