Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a new video tutorial and project showcasing the Heart to Heart Bundle from the January – June Mini Catalog. This is one of my favorite bundles in the entire catalog because of the die that’s included. I love the background die with all the hearts and think that it’s just fabulous. So I had to use it on my project today. I created this super clean and simple card using the die, and some rainbow ink blending (another favorite thing I like to do). Here’s a look at the card.
I started off my card today by doing the Rainbow ink blending using some of my favorite bright colors. I used Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape. I also threw in a little Pacific Point between the Granny Apple and the Gorgeous Grape. I did this because the purple of the Grape has red in it and red and green are complimentary colors. When you mix these two colors together you get a natural gray or as some say mud. But if you where to mix these colors together and add white you get a natural gray color.
I then die cut this panel of ink blended goodness with the die from the Heart to Heart bundle. I ran it through a couple times to make sure I got a great cut. I then ran a piece of whisper white (4 x 5 1/4) through my die cut and embossing machine with the Subtles 3d embossing folder. A great tip is to use the Embossing Plate that can be picked up in my online store with your older style 3d folders to get a great impression without having to add frustration and the right numbers of shims to your sandwich. I do this and get the best impressions I’ve ever have and there’s no fussy sandwich to figure out. Win Win! I then added the emboss piece to my card base (4 1/4 x 11) made out of a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
I then attached the multicolored heart die cut to the card front with some multipurpose liquid glue. And heat embossed my sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set onto a piece of Basic Black. I embossed the sentiment in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I love the contrast of the bright colors paired with the black and white sentiment strip. I popped this strip up on a few Stampin’ Dimensionals for added dimension. To finish off the card I sprinkled on some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a little shine and sparkle to the card.
