You Are Loved – A Wish For Everything

For once, I am a little ahead of the game…my Inque Spot Studio Weekly Challenges to inspire you and keep you stamping this week were incorporated with a few other challenges that are out there in the blog world.

I chose the Colors suggested by The Card Concept team (#168) and the Make My Monday Technique Challenge (#167) and as this is a favorite technique, I have added it to the As You See It Challenge (#268).

Here is my #SimpleStamping card:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Magenta Madness cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Basic White cardstock. 
  • Horizontal Cross Strip: (5¼” x 1⅞”) Basic White cardstock.  I wanted to introduce a little pattern to the strip and chose the retired Tea House Background stamp.  Old Olive ink was added to the stamp and I laid the cardstock down on top carefully and went over it lightly with a Brayer to transfer the pattern.
  • Vertical Cross Strip (¼” x 4”) Old Olive cardstock scrap.
  • Four Shapes – Hearts: Basic White cardstock.  I chose the retired Something Lacy Background stamp and the Square from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set for the KISSING TECHNIQUE for three Hearts.
    • The Something Lacy Background stamp was inked with Magenta Madness ink.
    • The Square Watercolor Shapes stamp was inked with Petal Pink ink.
    • The Square was pressed onto the Background stamp – in effect – Kissing each other and then stamped on to the Basic White cardstock.
    • For the sentiment Heart, I just added the Petal Pink Square to the cardstock and added the truncated sentiment, You Are Loved, from the A Wish for Everything stamp set with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker
    • Using the only Heart punch I own, the retired Sweetheart Punch, I created the Hearts.

All of the elements were adhered to the Background panel to match the sketch.  #SimpleStamping – only stamps, paper, ink and the additional punch option. 

Voila!  A sweet little love card.

  1. So sweet, Jolanda – and kissing IS fun, in every sense, lol. I love the thought process behind how you created this card – all about techniques for this one! And cute, cute colors! Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!


  2. Such a sweet card, Jolanda! Ink kissing is a technique I’d totally forgotten about, so I’m going to give it a go. Thank you for sharing it with us at As You See It Challenge.


  3. This is a perfect example of the kissing technique and you explained it so well in your blog write up, Jolanda! I love how your card turned out. Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges!
