Hi friends and Happy New Year. Marla here, back with a new card project featuring a sweet little stamp set from the recent Lawn Fawn release, "You Mean So Mochi". I must confess, I had no idea what mochi was, so I Googled it and found out it is Japanese ice cream. Who doesn't love ice cream, especially beautifully colored ice cream bites?
Once I realized I had a rainbow of colors to choose from for my mochi, I cut out a few masks and used them to repeat stamped the image, using Catherine Pooler's "Hoodie" ink, onto the background. This allowed me unlimited possibilities for coloring, I used the following markers to color both my background and focal point images:
Next, I used the "You Mean So Mochi" coordinating dies to cut out two more mochi images. I also die cut a few hearts and a flower so I could have both a girl and boy mochi. After coloring my images with my Copic markers, I stamped the sentiment and used a banner die to cut it out. I added foam micro squares to the back of each of the pieces for dimension.
Using Hero Arts "Infinity Nesting Rectangle" dies, I cut down the background and added foam tape. Then, then used two smaller dies to create a frame from white cardstock. I didn't want to completely cover up the background with all the pretty colors, so I used the largest of the smaller rectangle frame dies to cut a piece of vellum to back the frame.
To complete the card, I adhered all of my pieces to an A2 top folding card base. I add the sweet, heart banner to the top of my rectangle using the "Little Heart Strings Border" die to finish the design.
Thank you for taking time to stop by. Until next time.... Marla
