Stamping 411 – Love Bandit


This is going to be REAL quick because I need to leave for the airport to go to Leadership in about 45 minutes (although I'm pre-setting this to post on Friday while I'm gone.)  Luckily, Selene did a pretty easy sketch this week, so I was able to make it up pretty quickly.  The most trouble I had was adding a greeting on here!  I love the words (You Stole My Heart) with the little raccoon, although I did get my word separate from the image of the raccoon.

I started with a base of So Saffron cardstock, then added the Designer Paper from Tall tales as a strip across the bottom half.  I cut a rectangle of another print in Tall Tales, then added the Brilliant Blue Scallop Trim Border (that punch is a Sale-A-Bration selection item…don't worry, it will also be in the new catalog when it comes out!)  Then I layered it on Old Olive cardstock.  I thought it needed something across the tree pattern, so I added a strip of Rose Red 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon.  Finally, I stamped the Raccoon in Basic Black, colored the heart with Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker, then punched with the 1 1/4 circle punch.  It is layered on So Saffron 1 3/8 circle, then the Brilliant Blue Scallop Circle that I also pierced with the piercing tool in each scallop.  Finally added "You Stole My Heart" along the bottom.

Too cute!  Enjoy the weekend!

Just darling, Connie — love the DSP that you paired with the stamps. Would never have thought it this but it works great together! Blessings, Gretchen
