|Wedding/Anniversary/Valentine's card featuring the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit die and Bloomin' Love stamp set (available January 5th!!)|
Isn't that die-cut heart just to (pardon the pun) die for??? It is simply gorgeous and, with the Precision Base Plate and new Die Brush, cuts like a dream. No more dryer sheets or waxed paper for this girl! Woohoo!! I am in love with both of these products and how much easier they make my life. That die brush is THE BOMB...where has that puppy been all my life? So many rolls of waxed paper could have been spared if that nifty little tool had come into my life sooner.
Anyhow, on to the project. To achieve the gradient of colour on the heart, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and then sponged Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Crumb Cake before die-cutting my heart. MUCH easier than trying to sponge that delicate die-cut after the fact. I added even more yummyness by brushing the whole thing with my Wink of Stella glitter pen. Oh. My. Gorgeousness. The photo really doesn't do it justice. The entire heart just shimmers and sparkles...it is simply heavenly.
On the inside I stamped the floral heart image from the Bloomin' Love set in Blushing Bride ink. The sentiment is from the For the New Two stamp set and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink.
I am so loving this colour palette...stay tuned for more projects to get you in the mood for all things Valentine's :) In the meantime, give it a go yourself...it is a sure way to beat the winter blahs. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and post your completed card over at Sunday Stamps.
