Hi everyone! I’m excited to show you some cards I’ve made for the Made With Love Design Team. Made With Love is a craft store in Singapore. If you’re living in Singapore, drop by the store! It’s at a mall called Somerset 313. All products showcased are available at the Made With Love store.
Let’s face it. Crafting supplies might not be so cheap if you’re like me and you love to make cards or crafting in general, you might need to set a budget. I do that very often or I might not have enough to eat 😉
If I could, I would love to have all the stamp sets in the world. So when buying a stamp set, I will first think about at least 3 different looks I can do with it to see if I should buy that stamp set.
There are some designs that I would call it my “go-to” designs. Basically, I can reuse the technique with different stamp sets and change little things about it to make it a brand new design. And today, I would like to show you 5 cards using those designs.
All the 5 cards are using the Lawn Fawn – Pizza My Heart Stamp Set and Distress Inks for colourings.

The Falling-From-The-Sky Look.
This is probably something that I love to do a lot (and have done).
I started with stamping the sentiment first and stamping the pizza slices from the top of the card and gradually towards the bottom. Remembering that you would want to have more slices, clustering at the top and stamping it lesser and lesser towards the bottom.
I used Archival Black ink so that I can use my Distress Inks to colour in the pizza.
To add the “toppings”, instead of using the ones in the stamp set, I used various Ranger Stickles. Just because 😉
The Tiny-Stamps-Can-Be-The-Star Look.
A lot of the time, the tiny little stamps in a set are used to add details to the bigger stamps or even unused. But they can also be the main focus of your project!
For this card, I used the Circle Stitched Die from Lawn Fawn and die cut a circle. I stamped the Pizza Cutter first.
And now comes the fun part. Take out all your favourite ink pads colours and just stamp! I picked a couple of the bright colours of Distress Inks to create this look. Take out all the tiny stamps from the set and stamp it in different colours and fill the entire circle.
If you want to create this look but only have, perhaps, only 2 tiny stamps. You do this by just alternating colours.
The Artsy Look
The best thing about Distress Inks is that they react with colour. My card for this look is so simple! But you can make it even more complicated if you like. I started with embossing the heart-shaped pizza first. And add it the colours later.
The Old-And-New Look
Do you have older stamp sets that after a while, you just forgot about it? I do. The best way to “revive” them is to combine it with your newly purchased set!
The card above is combining Pizza My Heart & Party Animals (Lawn Fawn).
The Masking-Masking-Masking Look
I loooooove masking. I love the look of piling an image on top of each other.
Instead of stamping 12 pizza boxes separately and then cut them and glue them, I chose to stamp them on top of each other.
To start, I stamp out four pizza boxes on a regular, thin, typing paper. Thin paper is really important because you want to stamp you stamps on a more or less flat surface or your image will have blank spaces in between.
Remember : Anything you want to be on top or forward have to be stamped first. So I stamped out a couple of boxes at the base of the card first because I want them to be on top of other boxes.
Use any temporary adhesive (I used washi tape) to the back of your boxes (typing paper) and protect your pizza boxes and stamp the next one. This will turn out to be behind the boxes
This is how it looks when I remove the typing papers.
Colour them and add your sentiment 🙂
I hope you’ve been inspired by all these cards and hope you’ll give it a try!
