Be My Love Bug! Valentine’s Day Card with Lawn Fawn’s Bugs and Kisses

Lawn Fawn's Bugs and Kisses Stamp Set- Valentines Day Card- Marie Nicole Designs

Hey, friends! I have a quick little card to share with you today! This card is another “un-traditional” Valentine’s Day card. I used colors that differ from the usual reds, pinks, and whites to create an ink blended night sky for our fireflies.

I remember being a kid and catching fireflies in a jar on our farm, so these little bugs definitely bring back memories!

First, I used my SURFACE INKS to blend a purplish night sky in the background. I started with the color Heather, and ink blended a spot right where I knew I wanted to stamp my jar. Then, I gradually worked out from that spot, blending on darker hues of purples. So the colors I used along with Heather were Marsala, Plum, Midnight, and then a touch of Gargoyle around the very top corners.

After my background was finished, I stamped and embossed the jar in RAVEN BLACK EMBOSSING POWDER. I used that same powder to stamp part of the sentiment in. For the big “love” die cut, I used Lawn Fawn’s SCRIPTY LOVE die and cut it out of GLITTERSTOCK. I used the SILVER glitterstock, but added just a bit of Midnight surface ink to the bottom to fit it in with the whole purple theme!

I then stamped and colored the three fireflies, and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I didn’t want the white edges showing around the dies, since I wanted this card to be a night time scene, so I used a bit of SILVER WINK OF STELLA to color around the edges, making them a shimmery silver.

I glued on the fireflies and sequins with my BRUTUS MONROE CRAFT GLUE. To finish the card, I used some RAVEN CARDSTOCK for the card base, and also to cut a stitched hill from a STITCHED BORDER DIE from Lawn Fawn.

Like I mentioned, it is definitely not the traditional Valentine’s Day colors, but I think the night scene with the fireflies is a cute and romantic card to give to your loved one!

Thanks for stopping by today! Please check out the items below that I used on the card if you are interested!
