Wow, stamping TWO nights in a row?!?! I don't remember the last time that happened, but I'm enjoying it 🙂 Hmmm, maybe I've been bitten by the stamping bug again, awwww shucks lol!! Jeff is away on call for a storm coming in tonight, and the boys are with the dreaded xbox, so I snuck down to my stamp room for a little me time.
For tonight's inspiration, I turned to another favorite blog I visit, The Paper Players. They're having a theme challenge this week, and the theme is LOVE. That left it pretty wide open in terms of layout, so I turned to two of my most used sets, both are oldies & goodies, Baroque Motifs & Always. I know Always is retired, but that's not stoppin' me 🙂
I layered about a million different colors onto Shimmery White card stock (okay, 7 colors, but still), using stampin' sponges, leaving a brighter section in the middle behind my heart and gradually getting darker towards the outside edges. The heart is stamped in Black StazOn on Whisper White card stock, then I applied Versamark, Heat & Stick powder, heated it up, added Dazzling Diamonds glitter & heated it again to really melt it on. I love the sparkle…it's much sparklier in real life 🙂
Oh yeah, I also sponged some black ink onto Linen Thread to tie my tag around my heart.
Hey, thanks for stopping by again!! Btw, thanks for all of the fabulous comments & emails I received after last night's post. I really appreciate your support…stampers are certainly some of the most caring people I've met 🙂
