You Drive Me Wild

Hi everyone! It's great to be with you today! I can't believe it's February already!

Today I'm sharing a fun card I made using the Gel-à-Tins SWAK (Sealed With A Kiss) set!

I'm always looking for unusual ways to use stamps, and this idea came to me straight away:


Pretty out-of-the-box huh?! Let me tell you what I did!


I started with a yellow card base and stamped the mini lip trio using black ink.


I then used various ink colours and a stiff brush to stipple on the colour to give the look of leopard print!


I didn't want to cover up too much of that background, so I die-cut a tag, background stamped it with some distress-effect stamps and then built up a custom sentiment from lots of different stamp sets!


A tip for twine that defies gravity - paint on some Matte Mod Podge and shape the twine as you wish, then hang upside down to dry!

Supplies Used:


Typewriter Alphabet stamp set (MFT)
Lots of Love stamp set (Avery Elle)
Midnight Letters stamp set (Mama Elephant)
Background Basics: Postmarks, Farm set (Papertrey Ink)
Lido, Squash, Pumpkin, French Roast inks (A:Muse), Kraft ink (Papertrey Ink), Versafine Onyx Black ink (Tsukineko)
Harvest Gold, Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Fillable Frames #9 Die (Papertrey Ink)
Twine (Divine Twine)

I'll be back soon to share another project, have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!!!
