You Make My Life Better - Heart To Heart Bundle - Stampin’ Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a new video tutorial and project showcasing the Heart to Heart Bundle from the January - June Mini Catalog.  This is one of my favorite bundles in the entire catalog because of the die that's included.  I love the background die with all the hearts and think that it's just fabulous.  So I had to use it on my project today.  I created this super clean and simple card using the die, and some rainbow ink blending (another favorite thing I like to do).  Here's a look at the card.


I started off my card today by doing the Rainbow ink blending using some of my favorite bright colors.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape.  I also threw in a little Pacific Point between the Granny Apple and the Gorgeous Grape.  I did this because the purple of the Grape has red in it and red and green are complimentary colors.  When you mix these two colors together you get a natural gray or as some say mud.  But if you where to mix these colors together and add white you get a natural gray color.
I then die cut this panel of ink blended goodness with the die from the Heart to Heart bundle.  I ran it through a couple times to make sure I got a great cut.  I then ran a piece of whisper white (4 x 5 1/4) through my die cut and embossing machine with the Subtles 3d embossing folder.  A great tip is to use the Embossing Plate that can be picked up in my online store with your older style 3d folders to get a great impression without having to add frustration and the right numbers of shims to your sandwich.  I do this and get the best impressions I've ever have and there's no fussy sandwich to figure out.  Win Win!  I then added the emboss piece to my card base (4 1/4 x 11) made out of a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
I then attached the multicolored heart die cut to the card front with some multipurpose liquid glue.  And heat embossed my sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set onto a piece of Basic Black.  I embossed the sentiment in White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I love the contrast of the bright colors paired with the black and white sentiment strip.  I popped this strip up on a few Stampin' Dimensionals for added dimension.  To finish off the card I sprinkled on some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a little shine and sparkle to the card.

Geared Up Garage - Creative Crafting Uncles Design Team



Hello and welcome to my blog I am excited to share with you my first post as part of the Creative Crafting Uncles Design Team.  Each month we will be bringing you a new challenge on the 15th.  This month the theme was CARS.  There are design team members from all over.  Here's a look at my card.

For my card today I went very minimalistic!  I know very unlike me.  I wanted to do something that was very striking but very graphic at the same time.  So I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! in Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock cut down to 4 3/4 x 3 1/2".  Once I had the car on there I took a die and draw a circle around the card.  I then used my ruler to add some graphic lines that intersected the circle but didn't go inside.  Once I had the lines done I colored one in black and one in gray.  I decided to leave the third the white of the paper for visual interest. 
I added some black splitters with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and then stamped the nuts from the stamp set to add a little triangle design.  I finished off my card by stamping the sentiment in Tuxedo black ink under the car.  I then added my focal piece to a card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to add an additional layer and a little more subtle visual interest to the card.  My card base was made from Thick Whisper White  cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2".

I hope that you have fun with this challenge and that you will take a little time and play along.  You can do so by clicking here and visiting the Creative Crating Uncles Blog.  Thanks for dropping by I will see you later.
