WPlus9 | See You Soon - Googly Eyes Card

WPlus9 | See You Soon – Googly Eyes Card

Hello there! I seem to be re-inventing googly eyes for myself these days. I am having so much fun using them to create funny interactive cards lately. I shared a Cat & Fish cards the other day and today I have little kitty and teddy bear googly eyes card!

I got the idea for this card from a sentiment I accidentally spotted in one of WPlus9 stamp sets – C U Soon from the Friends For All Seasons: Summer. I thought it would be super fun to stamp a colorful background with lots of googly eyes and use the See You Soon sentiment.

CARD DETAILS

I started by pulling images from several stamp sets and bringing them together in one fun background. I went with several large and lots of small designs. The first image I picked was a kite from Friends For All Seasons: Summer. I stamped it 3 times onto a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ “ panel using Coconut Husk ink. I added adorable baby animals from the Happy Gang set – I stamped kitty using Wild Mango and teddy bear using Lake House inks. Brown, yellow and light blue always make a great color combination for both baby and everyday cards.

I also added a stamped Bonjour speech bubble and a tiny bee, ducks from the Friends For All Seasons: Fall, a mouse from the Happy Gang and finally flower cluster from the Fresh Cut Wreath.

I still wanted to use the C U soon sentiment, but with my pattern being so busy and the sentiment being so small I felt I would loose it on my project. Instead I used Whimsy Alpha stamps and companion dies and stamped a much bigger and bolder See U Soon sentiment.

I used a layer of vellum and foam mounted my sentiment on top. Vellum helped to mute portion of the background and also helped the sentiment pop.

Of course I adhered googly eyes to every kitty and teddy bear image and even added a set of eyes to the double O in my sentiment.

If you’d like to re-create this project there’s one tip to keep in mind – when stamping partial kitty and teddy bear make sure to stamp the head so that there’s enough room for the googly eyes. You can’t trim those off the edge of the card, so you need to plan ahead to make sure you’ll have enough space for the entire eye or both eyes on your partial impressions.
