Hi and welcome back, Joy here sharing a fun card with you celebrating Love. I had Barrels of fun playing with this clear stamp set from our holiday release! The Barrels stamp set is very versatile as it comes with a combination of 25 images and sentiments to build a scene with. I love this stamp set because it keeps you crafting from Autumn through Spring!

Let’s take a look at the Barrels of Love!


I started off by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I stamped one barrel with the sentiments on the front, and the other two were left plain. In addition to the Barrels, I layered the champagne bottles by masking the most forward row and then stamped the back row.

You’ll notice I stamped the solid hearts along the top ring of the focal barrel and added red stickles to them. I also stamped the outline heart and colored it with Copics and applied glossy accents.

The background, I admittedly had to play around with because I wasn’t loving my blend, but I kept going and I love it now. I started out with 3 colors of distress oxides, one being a gray tone which didn’t work, but then by adding Aged Mahogany over all the layers it came together nicely. I think the blend makes the Barrels pop off the card!  I of course had to add shimmer spray to the whole thing because every card deserves to sparkle!
