I was determined to play with the Love From Lizi card kit for October before November arrived. And I did. I even had this video almost completely finished before the end of the month. But between visitors and medical things I didn’t get around to completing. As I just received my November kit I thought it might be best to actually get done with sharing this!
I started my first card by creating an arrangement with three of the ephemera pieces. I then cut a background panel and two banners with some of the patterned paper from the kit. I edged the patterned paper pieces with black ink to give some definition, then adhered all my elements to a grey card base. I finished the card with a sentiment from the sticker sheet.

My second card also uses a grey card base. I masked and stamped the lower portion of the card with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink and the Love From Lizi Candystripe background stamp. I then used a black glitter pinstripe peel-off as the divider between the stamped and unstamped portions of the card. I stamped the chair from the Home Sweet Home stamp set three times, once each on the pink, yellow and lighter green patterned paper. I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to add detail then fussy cut the chairs out. I adhered the chairs to the card base with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue, and finished off with another sentiment from the sticker sheet.

For my third card I decided to do some watercolouring using the row of houses stamp with the watercolour dot card from the September kit. I stamped and clear heat embossed the stamp onto a square of watercolour card and lightly watercoloured it. I matted the watercoloured panel onto the backside of the grey patterned paper, and used the front (dotted) side to create a strip to go along my card base. I adhered the strip down flat to the yellow card base, popped up the matted watercolour panel, and finished with a sentiment that I heat embossed with the Perfect Plum embossing powder onto vellum, and fussy cut it out before adhering it to overlap the edge of my panel.

I went very clean and simple for my fourth card, creating a monochromatic, one layer card. I used the long vine stamp and stamped it onto the left hand side of my card base three times using Forest Glades Altenew ink. For the middle of the three vines I turned my card base upside down so that the vines would be stamped in the opposite direction to the other two. I then added a sentiment using Evergreen Altenew ink. I considered adding some Nuvo Drops, but decided against it.

Card five is another clean and simple design. I stamped the phone using MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink then coloured it in pink, green and grey using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. After colouring I restamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and at the same time added my sentiment. I finished the card by dry embossing a circle around the phone using the circle die from Background Builder – Set One Dies.

For my sixth card I started with a black card base. I stamped the lamp towards the lower right hand corner with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide. I then masked off the area around the lamp and ink blended the same Oxide to create a glow from the lamp. I stamped the lamp again onto some of the patterned paper, added a little shading with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers, and fussy cut out. After using Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp the lamp again over the ink blended area I adhered the patterned paper lamp into place, then finished the card by white heat embossing my sentiment.

I created a simple wreath with the leaf stamps for my seventh card. Using a large circle die as a guide I stamped and heat embossed the images with Golden Crown embossing powder onto a dark blue card base. I then finished the card quite simply with a hello ephemera popped up over the edge of the wreath.

I started card eight by stamping the Candystripe background stamp onto one of the kraft tags using Barely Beige ink from Simon Says Stamp. I then popped the tag up onto a panel of the red dotty paper. I popped up a floral ephemera piece slightly overhanging the edge of the tag and adhered the arrangement to dark a blue card base. I added a sticker sentiment onto the tag, peeking out from behind the floral piece, and finished off with two ephemera hearts.

My ninth card started with some die cutting. I used the tri-window die from Kat Scrappiness’ Crafters Essentials I and cut it from the pink, mint, yellow and dark grey patterned papers. I then played around piecing together the different pieces, settling on the yellow outline with two mint and one grey inner piece. I used washi tape on the back to hold the pieces together and added a lamp ephemera into two of the windows before stamping a sentiment into the third. I then mounted the die cut panel onto a black card base, completing the card.

For my final card I used some of the leftover snippets from die cutting card nine. I chose one grey, one mint and one pink. I then adhered a heart to each of the panels, using the same colours for the hearts but alternating the panels they were on. I used Catherine Pooler’s Tiara ink to stamp the Candystripe background stamp onto a yellow card base, then adhered the heart panels onto it. Finally I added the “happy” and “together” ephemera words to complete the card.

As always I had a lot of fun playing with this card kit, and I absolutely love the striped background stamp! I can see myself using it a lot in future. I am a bit frustrated to be so late sharing it, but I hope you’ll enjoy seeing my creations anyway.
