Stitched Hearts

I’m here with a fun and bright card inspired by Make It Monday #255: String Art Using Die-Cuts with Amy Sheffer.

First, I made a stencil using the hearts cover plate die. Then I sponged a rainbow through the stencil.

Then I die cut the sponged panel using the Center Style: Feminine Die and set that aside.

Papertrey Ink - Center Style: Feminine DieI attached the outside “frame” part of the sponged heart panel to a white card base. IMG_9183editedThen, to give the card a clean and finished look, I a die cut a panel of white cardstock using the heart cover plate die and added it to the top of the frame and card base.

Next I went back to the enter piece and stitched white cord into the Center Style: Feminine Die cut, securing with a bit of tape on the back. Then I attached the stitched center panel to the card front using foam tape.

I die cut the sentiment and then used my Zig markers to ink it up, brushed with water to blend the colors and allowed to dry. IMG_0060editedI thought the colors were a bit too vibrant so I toned them down but squashing the word die cut onto my Craft ink pad and blending the white ink with my finger. Lastly traced the sentiment with a white gel pen.  IMG_0053edited

Make It Monday #232: Layered Stamping on Kraft

Hi! I’m here with a card for this week’s Make It Monday with Dawn.

IMG_1195edited

 I’d like to play this at SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says “Anything Goes” and Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes. I CASED one of my own cards from last Christmas as inspiration for my design. I’d also like to play this card at Emerald Creek Dares Challenge: Bringing Bits of Cheer, The Card Concept’s Challenge #44: Festive Glory  ( I think that this card could be categorized as Clean & Graphic or maybe Classy & Elegant?) and at Always Playing with Paper’s Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}.IMG_1203editedI’m really enjoying using this technique of stamping with white on kraft. I adapted the technique and used it to make a card with a hand sketched holly design and water coloring. If you’d like to, you can see it here.

Here’s a slideshow of how I made this card:

 All stamps and the die are Papertrey Ink products. While you’re here I thought you might to have a peek at a fun card I made with some other Papertrey Ink products. I’m very pleased with this card! Click on the photo if you’d like to be taken to the post where I share this and 3 other owl cards.  Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! 🙂
