"Love Hearts"

Saturday, July 31, 2010

On our last trip to "The Stamping Place" in West Columbia, SC, my wife fell in love with a couple of new StampAVie stamp sets. What could I say but, "If you want them, Get them". Needless to say, I am the one that does most of the coloring and stamping.
I colored most of the images at last weeks Thursdays stamping get together. I do this alot because I can concentrate on coloring and assemble the cards at home. Much easier, I don't have to carry so much.

The image I used for todays card is from "Stampavie" and is called "Love Bubbles". It's really a cute stamp. So here is my rendition;

"Love Bubbles"

The image was colored with Copic Markers of course on Cryogen cardstock. I love the hidden sparkle of this paper. The image and the mat were cut out using the "Spellbinders" die "Label Seven" and embossed the image mat with a "Cuddlebug" embossing folder.

For the embelishments I attached twelve swarovski pink crystals using a tool simular to the very popular "I-Rock". Very simple to use.

Hint: When you want to place crystals evenly spaced, I find that if you take a piece of 7-count plastic canvas you can get you spacing of the crystals very even and centered. Just place the plastic canvas on the space you want to put the emblishment in and count to hole. A small pencil maker will help you place the crystals.

The hearts and the glass where covered with "Crystal Lacquer" gives a little depth and shine.

If you have questions about this card, leave a comment and your email address, and I will answer you promptly.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    They are so adorable Bob. Rose picked a great one, because it reminded her of you both :)

    How sweet. Love this image and what you did with it. Thanks for the measuring tip. What tool did you use. I usually end up measuring correctly, but have difficulty placing the small pieces down just where I want them.

    Bob, I have that Spellbinder's set and have never used it - guess I need to break it out and add it to a card. Thanks for the inspiration, lovely card. Cindy2
