Kraftin Kimmie Saturday challenge - Hearts
Hey Crafty Friends, thanks for stopping by again today! I'm back with inspiration as guest designer for kraftin kimmie stamps and today is a fun new challenge, all details can be found below, scroll down to see my card.
Good morning and welcome to another
This week, Krafty Girl Rosie is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is:
So with all that said here is my inspiration for this week's challenge.
1. Take a stitched slimline die and cut from your favourite ink blending card stock
2. Ink blend from the bottom up a little way using wild honey into a sea colour such as mermaid lagoon into a sky colour of blueprint sketch, take a spritz of water over the panel to create some texture.
3. Take a stitched heart die, I'm using the 2nd largest in this set and die cut one centrally in and then another each side to create 3 heart apetures. Keep them hearts in the same are they came out from to keep it unified.
4. Stamp your desired images from the Kraftin Kimmie Turtley Awesome stamp set and colour in your favourite medium. I'm using copic markers.
6. Now you have all the elements of the main card let's put it together, take a slimline card base. Mine is cut 8.5 long x 7, creased at 3.5. Attach the main slimline panel, minus the heart apetures using double sided sticky tape to the card base.
7. With the 3 large hearts take foam tape and stick these back in their place. Using foam tape for these gives the card extra definition around the heart area.
8. Stick your images in desired area and sentiment centrally at the top. I have attached the sentiment strip on foam tape also.
9. Create a shower of hearts in your scene by using the same colour cardstock as your sentiment batter and die cut small hearts, randomly place them along the sky to create your shower!
Tip: Always embellish in odd numbers, whether this be sequins or extra die cuts like I have used here. You can also hold them a little above your project and drop them for random placement, I prefer this to having to think about where to place them!
This was so fun to put together, this could be an alternative valentines day card for a friend maybe? Or maybe someone you know would love this just to make them smile! I know I will be adding this to the happy mail I send to care homes here in the UK!
I will be back in a few days with more Kraftin Kimmie goodness, until then, happy crafting!
