WOW! We are halfway through January already!!!! This time of year just seems to fly! We have stamp camp tomorrow and I am looking forward to starting off my Stamping year!!! I had a lot of fun with this week's sketch. I used the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies in a new way!!! So, on to the sketch:
And here's what I did with it (I took some liberties and put my sentiment in a different spot, will you forgive me?)
Stamps: Take it to Heart, Heard from the Heart (used in MDS and manipulated to be a vertical greeting)
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Cardstock: Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Lattice Embossing Folder, White Taffeta Ribbon, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies
A couple of things I did on this card. I started at the top of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of DSP and placed the smallest heart die close to the right hand side. I made a sandwich using the multi-use platform, a cutting plate, then my DSP and the framelit die cutting side down against the DSP. I turned the DSP and the die sideways so that I could put the top cutting plate over just half of the heart. I repeated this five times being careful to line the hearts up. When I was done, I folded the DSP so the hearts popped out to the side.
The other thing I did was make my own waffle ribbon. I took a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock and ran it through the lattice embossing folder then trimmed it to 3/8" which fit right on top of the white taffeta ribbon and allowed just the very edges of the white to show. Pretty cool, huh?
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Martin Luther King day on Monday!!!!
