Welcome back everyone! We’re moving along today to another sweet heart stamp set with coordinating dies.
Newton’s Heart stamps and dies
I had fun using patterned paper for by background yesterday so for today’s card I made a huge, wonderful crafty mess! It was glorious and made my heart happy. I hope you enjoy it too!
I started with teal cardstock and inked it up using the Bokeh Hearts stencil – first with wilted violet distress oxide ink. I made sure I had a good layer so these hearts really popped. Then for the second layer I added bubblegum glitz glitter gel from Thermoweb. After the panel was completely dry I spritzed and flicked water everywhere and let that dry. I was too clean still so then I came back with white paint and now I’m in love!
I stamped and colored Newton with copic markers, keeping him light and simple to pop against all the color in the background. I tried my best to match markers with the teal cardstock for my heart – BG13, BG32 and BG11 did the job pretty well.
I used the coordinating die to cut Newton out. Then I die cut my background panel with the second largest Frames Squared die and also cut a purple circle from the same set to go behind Newton.
To assemble my card, I wrapped twine around the square and tied it in a bow on the right side. Then I carefully added foam tape to the back, avoiding the twine and popped the panel up on a white card base. Then I did the same think with the purple circle and finally added Newton on top!
For finishing touches I simply added glossy accents to Newton’s nose and toe beans. I love all that texture and sparkle! It’s so fun!
