Hello, everyone! I couldn’t resist this stamp set – it was just too cute and I just had to have it. It’s one of the small Lawn Fawn sets called Sweet Smiles, and I think it’s a very versatile set since you can use those adorable faces with so many other stamp sets.
For this card, I started out using Cryogen Iridescent 89# cardstock for the base and the front panel. It gives the card a subtle shimmer, which I like. All coloring is done using Copic markers. I stamped the gumball machine twice and colored the front panel of the machine before cutting out the glass container part with a craft knife. I layered the second piece of Cryogen cardstock behind it and lined up the images. There is a piece of acetate from some packaging that I used for the clear front of the card. The front panel and the pennant are popped up using dimensional adhesive. I cut a piece of some absolutely gorgeous Vintage Silver Lustre Text weight cardstock to fit behind the machine. This paper is so beautiful. It looks like it has very fine brush strokes in it, and I love the texture and shine it adds to a project. I had to die cut a circle in it so that the colored gumballs on the back piece of Cryogen would show through to the front of the card.
