Love is Love!
Good morning! Jess here with a trio of BRIGHT cards using our fun Love is Love Bold Prints cling stamp!
I was in the mood to get inky and thought it would be fun to play with the Love is Love Bold Prints cling stamp and distress inks! I started by removing my stamp from the plastic packaging it came in and then I cut the sheet of packaging into a large square. You could do the same with acetate but I find the thinner plastic is more easily manipulated! First I smooshed my distress inks (you can see the colors I used in the photo above) onto the plastic square and spritzed them with water. Then I flipped the plastic over onto a piece of watercolor paper and pressed down with my fingers to spread the paint around.
I let it soak into the paper for about 30 seconds and then peeled the plastic up and let it dry the rest of the way. Once it was dry I spritzed it with water and blotted off the droplets. I repeated this process three times to create three different backgrounds.
For my first card I prepped the background panel with my powder tool and then used my MISTI to stamp the Love is Love cling stamp with versamark before heat-embossing it with white embossing powder. I used the Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies to die cut a variety of hearts in snow layering paper and black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from You Are Loved onto a white heart with intense black ink. Then I pressed a versamark pad over the heart and heat-embossed the entire surface with clear embossing powder. I repeated the process twice to get the look of an enamel embellishment! I brushed a black cardstock heart with spectrum noir clear sparkle and then layered my white heart on top.
I added a tangle of metallic silver thread under the black heart and adhered it to the rainbow background. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a black card base. Finally I finished it with a few sparkling clear sequins.
For my second card I stamped the Love is Love cling stamp onto snow layering paper with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base. Then I die-cut one of my rainbow panels with various sizes of the Nesting Heart Infinity Dies. I stamped the sentiment from You are Loved onto the largest heart with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.
My last card uses the older Love Stamp and Cut set. I die-cut the word Love from white cardstock three times and adhered them together. Then I pressed versamark over the word and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. I repeated the process twice to get a nice smooth metallic finish. I stamped the rest of the sentiment onto a smaller white heart with intense black ink and then layered it over two more hearts. I applied spectrum noir clear sparkle to the black heart and then adhered the die-cut word over the hearts.
I had a bit of unfortunate blending on one of the rainbow panels so I decided to adhere the heart to the side of that panel to cover the mistake. I added a leftover heart from my second card with foam mounting tape, trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base!
