You're My Person - Modern Heart Kylie's Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my blog for the second post today.  I am back again for this month's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop.  This month I am going to share a card with you that I made using the retiring Modern Heart Stamp Set.  This is another one of those sets that I waited to order because well you know all the reasons why:  I am sure you have said them yourself.  I actually got this stamp set in my shipment the day that the Last Chance List came out.  So you can imagine that I was a little upset when I saw it and three others I just ordered on the list.  So I decided to make lemonade and use them anyway.  I was actually really surprised it was on the list, since it only came out last year in the Annual Catalog, and everyone I knew had it.  Any way Here's a look at my card.

I started my card today by figuring out what I wanted to use and the color scheme for my project; this seems to be my go to for starting a card.  I like to figure out what colors I am using; then work from there.  I usually will pull the colors from my designer series paper.  With this card I used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  I pulled the colors from the coordinating colors on the back of the paper pack and added in Basic Gray, because we all know it goes with everything.

I then picked out the designer series paper that I wanted cut it down to size and added it to a Whisper White mat.  Then I added that to a Blackberry Bliss mat before adding this to the Thick Whisper White Card base.  I then stamped the heart from the Modern Heart Stamp Set and used the watercolor wash image from the set to fill it in with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.   But, before stamping the watercolor wash image down I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper to have just a little lighter color.  I then added the stamped image to a Blackberry Bliss mat and added it to my card front.

I next stamped my sentiment in Old Olive Classic Ink and punched it out using a 1 1/2" Circle Punch.  I added the whisper white circle to a blackberry bliss circle which by the way was punched out with a 2" Circle Punch.  I popped the Whisper White circle up on Stampin' Dimensionals and then popped the sentiment up again once layered with dimensionals on the card front.  To finish off my card I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels sprinkled around the card to add a little sparkle.

I also added just a little something to the inside of the card with a strip of matching designer series paper.  Thanks for joining me for my second post today.  Make sure that you hop along with the others in the blog hop I know you will find a lot to be inspired by today.  You can also shop all the supplies I used today in my online store by clicking on the item in the Shopping List below the blog roll.
