Love You To Pieces Jigsaw Card

by Joanne James11. February 2019 08:00

I have a class today and am still full up with cold so have a feeling this is going to be a long week! Today I'm sharing a card for this week's challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches that also uses the colour palette over at CAS Colours and Sketches


I love this week's FMS sketch from Jen Brum, which is all the more surprising given her phobia of circles! The FMS team have done a fabulous job with their creations this week and I couldn't resist having a go too, although what to do with those circles? I settled for puzzle pieces - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Fun Sketch - So Jen Brum's sketch comprises lots of circles, something she normally avoids; in visiting the blog of Jen Mitchell, one of the other FMS designers, I discovered there was a word for someone who has a fear of circles, it's called trypophobia. So I wondered if there was also a word for a fear of puzzles too and there is - logiphobia. Who knew?! So if you have it, you should probably look away now!! 

Love You To Pieces - I used a Powder Pink card base and stamped outline jigsaw pieces from the 'Love You to Pieces' stamp set in Grey Granite and Lovely Lipstick down the outer edge of my panel, adding in a few clusters of pink hearts to mimic the varying sizes of the images as per the sketch. There are some great sentiments in this set - I used one of my favourites on the inside:


Coloured Embossing - I used two diecut jigsaw pieces for my sentiment and used Lovely Lipstick embossing powder on one and stamped the other in Grey Granite and heat embossed that with clear powder for a similar effect. I love the glossy texture and added detail this gives - it really makes these sentiment pieces stand out from the background.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I happen to enjoy jigsaw puzzles, so your card is right up my alley!  Smile  The mix of tiny hearts and puzzle pieces is a fun take on the sketch, and it's a fun use of the challenge colors.  Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at CC&S!

Love your idea! Joanne! I think loving someone is something like adjusting ourselves to the loving one by filling a gap. Thank you for sharing your piece at CC&S challenge!
