There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by stamping my critters. The paie on the bench were cut out with a torn rectangle die. The rest were cut with the scan n cut

A piece of patterend paper was cut with a larger nesting die and these were arranged onto a kraft card base

The shake it stencil was used to blend 4 areas using a mix of the dusty concord and worn lipstick

The hearts were blended over the top of these with the tumbled glass

The sentiment was heat embossed in the white

The smaller sentiments were then heat embossed in the purple.

Using the lots of love stencil a number of hearts were blended with the seedless preserve in random positions 

This was then finished with a selection of Nuvo Drops

The lamp glass was finished with glossy accents 

Thank you for reading 

Happy Crafting
