Welcome back to my blog and Magenta Super Saturday.I used the new “From the Heart” stamp for today’s card. You can also see my card on the Magenta blog here. I inked half of the stamp with Picked Raspberry Distress ink and stamped it on white cardstock, then inked up the other half of the stamp with Salty Ocean Distress ink. The colors overlap in the center to create a shade of purple. I repeated the process a couple of times until I was happy with the depth of color. I used a die to cut out a heart shape and also cut two more hearts and glued all three pieces together. For the corner background I switched to lighter colors of ink (Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac.) I placed the stamp in the upper left corner and inked with Spun sugar on the outer edge and Shaded Lilac toward the middle.) I moved the stamp to the right, inked the center with Shaded Lilac and then Tumbled glass. I cut the paper at an angle for the upper left side of the card. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of a piece of 3 ¾” x 5” white cardstock, added the background piece to the upper corner, a strip of silver metallic paper, then adhered the heart. I adhered the whole piece to a piece of navy blue cardstock, then to an A2 card.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
