Knock. Knock. Who's there? A New Post!!

There's a reason the title of my post is a knock-knock joke. It's because I made a Valentine's Day card using the new WPlus9 Knock Knock Valentine set. I have been wanting to make a knock-knock joke card for a loooong time. I tried doing it with alphabet stamps and speech bubbles, but it was way too tedious and time consuming. This set makes it a breeze.

Before I started stamping, I needed to choose a color palette. I have a Pinterest board specifically with color combinations that I like. Here is the  palette I chose:

First, I stamped the solid speech bubble using the colors in the palette. Then, I stamped the knock-knock jokes with black pigment ink (Hero Arts), and fussy cut them. I applied them to the stamped panel with clear foam tape for dimension. I adhered banners to the bottom of the panel and then affixed it to the card base using foam dots for even more dimension.

It's hard to tell in the photo, but I coated the colored speech bubbles with clear Wink of Stella to give them some extra shimmer. It looks really pretty in real life.

Thanks for visiting. Have a craft-tastic day!
