HYCCT1506 Happy Anniversary Hearts
Hi Again Friends!
This card was created for Splitcoaststampers’ HYCCT1506 Stacy’s “Hearts for Hope” Challenge along with the F4A271 “GettingHitched” , TLC548 “It’s A Digital World” and Retro Sketches RS184 SketchChallenges.
Again, I hope you have a chance to check out the challenge sites- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) print out the three hearts from the Always brush stamp set (reducing in size) onto Whisper White cardstock.
Carefully cut out the hearts, use a Sponge Dauber to apply Real Red Classic Ink to each heart, de-static with the Embossing Buddy®, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Create the background by spritzing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with water and dropping Brusho® Brilliant Red, Purple and Turquoise Crystal Colours over the panel and spritz with water again (actually the background on the card is the result of pressing into the original panel that had excessive powder and water- this background was a bit softer in color and not so saturated...I am still experimenting with Brusho®)
Dry the Brusho® background with the Heat To
ol and stamp the
script stamp from the retired Notable Notions using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the background panel into thirds and adhere the left and right panel directly onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Mount the center panel onto a strip of Basic Black cardstock and add the horizontal scrap pieces of Basic Black cardstock.
De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from the retired hostess set, Express Yourself with Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Adhere the sentiment strip to the center panel and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the embossed hearts to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals® and mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
