One of the things I love about card making is the inspiration I get from just one stamp set or from a technique. Yesterday I shared with you a card I made by coloring the True Love DSP with my stampin’ blends. I really loved the way the colored images turned out so I decided to make another card using the same technique.
To make this card, I started with a basic white card base (cut cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″). For my first layer, I cut a piece of basic black cardstock (5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″) and adhered it to my card base.
Next, I took a piece of basic white cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″) and used my woodland embossing folder to emboss the bottom of it (about 1″) as you can see in the picture and adhered this layer to my card.
For my next layer, I took a piece of True Love DSP (5 1/4″ x 3″) and cut out a heart in the middle using the Many Hearts dies. Before I layered the DSP to my card, I used our new blending brushes and flirty flamingo ink pad to add some color to the basic white cardstock. I added enough ink so that it would only show through the heart cut out. Once I had enough color, I adhered the DSP to my card. I also cut a small strip of basic white cardstock (5 1/4″ x 1/4″) and used my layering square dies to make the border and adhered the strip to my card right where the embossed part and the DSP meet.
For my next step, I stamped the sentiment using memento black in the middle of the heart. The sentiment is from the Lots of Heart stamp set. Then, my favorite part, I colored some of the flowers from the True Love DSP using my stampin blends (flirty flamingo and mossy meadow), cut them out with my scissors, and adhered them to my card using stampin’ dimensonals.
I really thought my card was missing something so I decided to embellish the card with some basic pearl jewels, which I colored using the flirty flamingo stampin’ blends.
What do you think? Do you love this card as much as I do? Leave me a comment below.
