Good Wednesday Morning everyone!
Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. After seeing this idea on Pinterest, I knew it would be a cool technique for making cards with my Big Deal stamp sets.
Here's how I did it:
Step 1. Stamp the large heart image from the Collection UM sheet onto a piece of copy paper.
Step 3. Use a dot stamp or a flat pencil eraser to stamp dots, darkest to lightest, from the edge of the heart outward. Create the second and third generation dots by stamping off some of the ink onto the mask itself.
Step 5. Use the mask to trace hearts onto patterned paper (I printed a sheet from the Big Deal Digital kit onto matte photo paper). Cut out heart shapes, and ink edges with CS® Hybrid Earth ink.
Step 6. Attach hearts to front of card. Stamp the sentiment, also from the Collection UM sheet, directly onto the card base (also made using printed paper from the digital kit).
Do you like my little charms? I created them using the heart, club, and diamond stamps from the Borders and Backgrounds UM stamp sheet.
Step 2. Use a hat pin to make a hole in your charms before applying your heat tool to shrink.
|*Note: The tail broke off the spade so I had to substitute with the club.|
Step 4. Use jump rings to attach to a heart on your card.
Before I let you go . . . we are in the middle of recruitment week of our first-ever Assembly Line Boot Camp, and folks are anxious to learn how to use the Link Up tool from InLinkz. So today I am adding that link so that you can practice sharing your Club Scrap artwork.
If you need help, check out the InLinkz tutorial video HERE.
I would love to see you give this new technique a try and share it using the blue "add your link" button below!
