Hearts a Flutter Class

Well…what a wonderful day I had today!  I just love classes and today’s Hearts a Flutter Class was so much fun! I made three clean and simple cards designs for the class so that the focus could be on the Hearts a Flutter stamp and framelits bundle. The great news is that the group got their creative mojo happening and changed things up by using the new embossing folders, the border scoring tool, alternative sentiments and working with different placement. Their creations were simply stunning.  The sad news is…I forgot to take photos so I can only show you the original designs.  But you get the picture.  Hopefully…you too can use these designs to get your creative mojo going.

Hearts a Flutter Class1

  • A piece of Raspberry Ripple Stitched Ribbon tied in a knot brings everything together.
  • A strip of basic grey is punched using the scallop ribbon border punch and adhered to the DSP so only half of the strip is peeking out from behind the DSP.
  • Each heart is layered using dimensionals with the final sentiment layer layered on a stack of thin dimensional pieces.  I love how the sentiment looks like it’s floating.

Hearts a Flutter2

  • The large Raspberry Ripple heart contrasts beautifully with Very Vanilla and Basic Grey pulls it all together.
  • Heart a Flutter 3Pool Party, Raspberry Ripple and Basic Grey all make their mark in the shape of a heart on this card.  The small Basic Grey heart adds a little something extra to bring attention to the sentiment.

Less is More 36

I’m loving the Less is More challenges and thought I’d play again this week. The theme is one layer + heart.  So I disappeared into my craft room thinking…one layer…how can I possibly stop at one layer? Now I have CASED a one layer card before (see anniversary card below) but I haven’t designed my own so I pulled out my glitter, buttons, ribbons and all sorts of embellishments to schmancy things up the way I usually do.  But…once I finished stamping, it didn’t need anything more.  Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Oh…and I found another challenge blog to enter this card in CES – seeing red  Two for one – I like it!

It just goes to show that you don’t need many supplies to get stamping.  The beauty of this challenge…you only have to cut one piece of card – now that is a plus!  After spending most of today cutting up card (five layers) to make 30 swaps for regionals this was definitely a relief.

Card recipe
Stamp set:
I {heart } Hearts and Easy events
Card: Whisper White

And…I have to share the card I made for my hubby last week.  It was our 21st wedding anniversary and I CASED this card from the very talented Deanna Hayes. Deanna stopped by my blog and commented on my last LIM challenge so I visited her blog – her creations are gorgeous.  Not only are challenges great fun, you meet friendly talented people and find inspiration along the way.  Don’t forget to have a go yourself over at Less is More.

Oh…btw…don’t you just love the new Aviary Stamp Set?  I think it’s gorgeous and I can’t wait to ink this one up again.

See you next time.  Tania XX
