Hi Crafty Friends,
Apparently today (29th January) is Puzzle Day, so I thought it would be fun to create a puzzle themed card using stamps & dies I had in my stash.
A while ago I purchased Tonic Studios All You Need Is die set, which contains a collage of jigsaws. A month or two ago I was finally able to get hold of Pink & Mains's To Pieces stamp set. As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew I wanted to use it with the jigsaw puzzle die set.
I die cut the top puzzle pieces from white cardstock and then used Distress Oxide Inks in Dried Marmalade & Abandoned Coral inks. I then spritz each of the pieces using Perfect Pearls mixed in water. For the layering pieces I used a pink cardstock and then adhered this to a folded red card.
I stamped the bears and jigsaw pieces and adhered them to the puzzle panels.
I die cut the "All I Need Is" from red cardstock and adhered it to the puzzle piece. I white embossed the "Love ya to pieces" sentiment. You can read this as both Love ya to Pieces and All you Need Is Love.
For the inside of my card I used two more of the puzzle pieces from the die set, and added two of the bears to the centre of the pieces. I added some hearts die cut from the All You Need Is die set and the sentiment which is from the stamp set.
