Happy Heart Day with RAWR and How You Bean? Hearts Conversation add on sets by Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends! With Valentine's day approaching I couldn't wait to have a play with Lawn Fawn's new release using the How you bean? Conversation Hearts add on stamp and dies as well as the cute RAWR stamp set. I have also added in the Love Ya line border die set to complete the love Valentine's theme. The hearts inside the mason jar makes a fabulous display and using the coordinating How You Been sets allows so much creative possibilities!

The overall layout has been inspired and based on the Sketchy Boards February Challenge. I have used a lot of creative licence to interpret the sketch hehe. The mason jars takes the place of the circles and butterflies are in the form of the dinosaur. Colour palette is totally inspired by love hearts and Valentine's day. The challenge is open to anything as long as it uses some of the elements. You can take part by clicking here and submitting your entry to the facebook group. Would love for you to join and see your wonderful creations.

Back to my card, the mason jars from the How You Bean and add on die sets are just fabulous and can be used in so many ways. I have created both a 2D and 3D shaker mason jars to show the versatility in both sets and different ways you can use the Conversation Hearts set. By using acetate window sheets makes the mason more realistic as you can see through them as well as seeing the lovely background. I have used heat resistant acetate sheets as I have heat embossed the jar outline and sentiment in both white and silver. This is totally up to preference, but using this technique allows you to still see the design and adds a special subtle touch. 

Copic markers have been used on most of the images and the individual die cut hearts from the Conversation Hearts add on have been stamped with various Lawn Fawn ink cubes. The ink cubes are fantastic to use, the colours are so vibrant when they dry and purchasing them in sets of four colours ink cubes are economical and great value.  

The background patterned paper is from the Watercolor Wishes petite paper pack 6x6. It's makes for the perfect backdrop and this paper pack is one of my favourite. I even use the larger 12x12 sheets as the back drop for my cards when taking photos of them! I have taken the large stitched rectangle die to die cut the patterned paper to make the A2 size panel complete with faux stitching. It adds a lovely finished detail. The front panel artwork has been mounted on to a side folding A2 white cardstock.

To ground the mason jars, I have used the Love Ya line border die cut sentiment to place underneath to best advantage. Glossy cardstock used for the sentiment for some shine. 

The Rawr sentiments works well with the Love Ya line border and has been white heat embossed on vellum. The vellum further grounds the mason jars by creating that stylised base as well as a subtle decorative feature. 

I hope you enjoyed and found inspiration. All these sets are so much fun to create with and you can let your creativity run wild with them from simple to detail - will always look fabulous!
