Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing a fun Valentine project with you, in hopes of getting your juices flowing for my favorite card making holiday!
I finally got some of the Tim Holtz dies that I have drooled over for the past couple of years. I'm always behind on getting the cool stuff because I'm too meditative when it comes to shopping. I want to buy investment pieces, products that I will love ten years from now. Ridiculous, I know, but I'm the most frugal person you will ever meet. :) This doily die has been on my wish list for some time and I am loving using it!!! Here I used it to cover the side of a half embossed panel. I tried embossing cardboard and loved it! Will definitely be doing this again. I removed the top plate from my Big Shot to make squeeze this through.
I wanted to be able to peel away the layers of cardboard, and reveal the corrugated inside. This piece of cardboard was white, which made it perfect for sponging Distress Inks over the embossed panel.
I made the flowers by gluing layers of small Prima flowers together. The sentiment is Penny Black.
These awesome hearts were scored off of a local CTMH dealer second hand. I clear embossed over the Fired Brick DI, then cut them out, distressed the edges, and sponged them lightly. I did some faux stitching with a BoBunny stamp set. Love it!
I'm sharing the love with the following challenges:
