I’m nuts & bolts about you

Hey everyone, hope you’re well! I’ve just made a card for this month’s Heffy Doodle challenge – “Love” themed cards, so I thought I’d share a tutorial!

To make my background, I blended various pink shades of distress oxide through the Simply Radiant stencil, starting with the darkest in the centre, moving out to the lightest (festive berries, picked raspberry, kitsch flamingo and spun sugar). I then ink blended a little spun sugar around the edges, to soften them a little.

I cut a piece of acetate an inch taller and wider than my card panel, and folded it around the back of the panel on three sides, securing with tape runner. Into the open side, I poured some “Beauty” sequin mix by Lucy’s Cards, then sealed the final side up.

I stamped out the robots from Heffy Doodle’s “Bots of Love” stamp set in copic-friendly black ink, then coloured them using the following Copic colours:

Robot 1: C7/C5/C3/C1. Heart/buttons: R17.

Robot 2: C5/C3/C1/C0, Cheeks/heart: R20, Wheel: R21, E000.

I added highlights with white gel pen. I then stamped out the hearts from the stamp set in Honeysuckle dye ink by Concord & 9th, and the nuts and bolts in Dove ink (also C9). I coloured the nuts and bolts with C5/C3 Copics.

After fussing cutting all of the images, I added the two robots with foam squares to the centre of the card, and then added the other images around them with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink on to some Dove cardstock, and heat embossed in bright white. I trimmed down the sentiment and added it with foam tape under the robots.

I think this is a really fun card to send to someone to remind them that they’re loved!

Thanks for stopping by again – see you soon!
