Loads Of Love

This month Stampin' UP!® have offered 20% discount on a range of 2-step stamp sets. Check out Stampin' UP!® Customer Home Page for more details.
One of these sets is Loads of Love, its a really great set as its so versatile and has an addon set that goes with it, as well as a standard wheel.
I have done some cards with the basic Loads of Love set to show its versatility as a stamp set. I hope you like them ...

This one was just using the pile of hearts from the set, I did this one and the book mark to show the use of the set wasn't limited to the truck.

Cardstock: Kraft, Whisper White, Melon Mambo

Ink: Black, Real Red, Melon Mambo

Stampset: Loads of Love

This book mark is just using the bunch of flowers from the set, I have raised them with a dimensional. Pot is a 1" circle with the top and bottom cut off and sponged to give definition.

This is using the stamp set with the truck - but in the colours of christmas, with some Dazzling Diamonds on the truck to simulate snow. Its almost like Mrs Claus helping deliver a truck load of presents!

For this card I used the Pastels and Blender Pen on Watercolour Paper. It was my first real attempt at using pens on this type of paper, having given up using them on the Whisper White and Very Vanilla. They are really nice to use on the watercolour paper, and the quality of the Stampin' UP! paper is lovely. I wanted to use some different colours so chose Apricot Appeal and Elegant Eggplant for this card - very happy with the colour combo. I matched the colours on the truck with the cardstock and brought out the colour of the hearts on the truck with some punch out hearts which are covered in Crystal Effects and then lightly sprinkled with glitter. The elegant eggplant needed a "little something" so I stamped tiny hearts from the Pony Party set onto it using versamark.

This last one in the group (so far) is a more masculine card, used More Mustard and Soft Suede as the primary colours, water colour using inks onto whisper white cardstock for the image, and finished off with the lovely Soft Suede ribbon.

As you can see, this really is quite a versatile stamp set, and at 20% off for the month quite a bargain! Contact me to order yours today.
