Four Ways Friday #56 - Loads Of Love!

Today's Four Ways Friday uses an oldie, but goodie...the Loads of Love stamp set!  I decided to try to use the set simply vs. using the images with loads of layers or embellishments.  I hope you like this simple Four Ways :)
For this first card, I simply stamped the truck onto a Whisper White card base using Jet Black Staz-On.  I then stamped the greeting from Short & Sweet, using Rose Red ink and the stamp-a-ma-jig to keep things lined up!  The next step was the stamp the heart image onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock with Staz-On and then cut it out.  I colored in the hearts using Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Pretty In Pink markers.  I also stamped the heart images and cut out one heart and colored it with Rose Red marker.  Lastly, I added dazzling diamonds and some crystal effects to the hearts and then adhered them to the truck using glue.
The floral image inspired me to make a flower pot!  Here I stamped the floral image with Jet Black Staz-On on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  I then colored in the flowers and leaves with markers and added some dazzling diamonds with 2-way glue to give them a bit of sparkle!  I used More Mustard card stock to paper piece a flower pot and adhered it together with glue.  A rectangle of Soft Suede card stock was cut out and the edges sponged with Soft Suede ink.  I then used the paper piercing tool to paper pierce the edges of the rectangle.  The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped with Staz-On using the stamp-a-ma-jig.  The flower pot was the adhered to the panel using dimensionals.  The panel was then adhered to a Whisper White card base and finally a piece of Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon was knotted around the card.
Card number three is all about stamping on designer series paper.  Here I stamped the truck image onto a piece of retired designer series paper and then cut the image out, removing the window with a hobby blade.  I also stamped the image onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and a piece of Brushed Silver card stock and cut those both out as well (well, actually, I just cut out the brushed silver bumper and hubcaps :)  I then glued all of the pieces down onto the Whisper White card stock truck.  The words "enjoy" and "the" came fro a stamp in the Sweet Season stamp set.  They were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White card stock and cut out.  The letters for "ride" are from the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set.  They were stamped with Old Olive ink and then punched out with the circle punch from the punch trio set.  I then used my 1/2" circle punch to punch out pieces of Melon Mambo card stock.  The circles were adhered together and then adhered to the card using glue.
The final card also required stamping onto designer series paper (Brights Pattern Stack - Old Olive).  I cut out the part of the truck that I wanted to be striped.  I then stamped the truck onto a Very Vanilla card base using Staz-On.  The designer paper was adhered to the card base with glue.  I used colored pencil to fill in the bumpers, tires and hubcaps.  The woman from Loads of Love Accessories was stamped and colored in using markers.  I then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the greeting and stamped it using Staz-On.  Finally, I stamped the floral image multiple times onto Whisper White card stock, cut them out and colored them with markers.  A dash of Old Olive super nova glitter was added prior to adhered the flowers to the card base.
I hope you've enjoyed this week's Four Ways Friday!  It was fun to use an old favorite and try to keep the cards simple!  I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend with a bit of relaxation as well!
