loving life with you by my side
I had the chance yesterday to play a little with my stamps. Just playing and experimenting. That's always fun. I decided to create this little Valentine for my husband (but really you could use it any time to let someone know how much you love them).
I started by playing a little with some red glimmer mist (I think it was Santa Baby, but I'm not sure). I used some eclipse masking tape and cut a heart (folded the masking tape and cut it freehand like we used to do in school). I used the negative mask to mask a piece of white cardstock. Then, I sprayed my red heart with the glimmer mist. I sped the drying up a bit with my heat gun. When I was dry, I stamped my sentiment from Technique Tuesday's Loving Words stamp set by Ali Edwards. on my heart. Then, I stitched my white cardstock to a red cardstock layer and added a red button tied with some cherry red baker's twine. Last, I used Passion for Polka to stamp polka dots on my kraft card base with some red ink.
You can't really see the shimmer from the glimmer mist in the first photo so I took another one where you can see the shimmer. I'm also playing around with the current Technique Tuesday challenge. The challenge is to use red or pink on our cards. There's still time to play along and one random participant will win one of the newly released stamp sets!
