I have two dear friends who have a child with autism and when Gina K came up with the Love You to Pieces stamp set, I knew I would have to get it to show my friends some love. The puzzle piece is used as the symbol for autism. It's been out for a while now, but I just got the set within the last month. I forgot to take pictures of the first set of cards I made with the set, but I did take pictures this time. I hope you like them.
The cards are textured DCWV cards that I got at Michael's with a coupon one day. Then I picked out my colors of cards, found some ribbon in my stash that I thought matched it and stamped away.
On the Hope We Connect Soon card, I inked up my puzzle piece stamp, then took my flower stamp from Background Basics and inked it with chocolate chip and stamped onto the rubber of the puzzle piece. It therefore transferred the flowers onto the puzzle piece, then I stamped it onto the paper. Kind of a reverse kissing technique. I love how it turned out! I know that the friend that is receiving these will love them too!
