Hearts ‘n Flowers…

Did you catch the “live” video on the Rambling Rose Studio facebook page?  Today’s post uses the technique highlighted on the video.  You can still catch it on my facebook page looking under videos.  And while you are visiting I hope you’ll like my facebook page…I’m sooooo close to reaching my goal there!

Here’s a card I’m calling Hearts ‘N Flowers…

The background behind the heart is the technique shown on the video.

a close up…

Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Sealed With Love (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Falling Petals Embossing Folder, Lace Doilies, Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies, Ken Oliver’s Color Burst and Heart Framelits (retired)

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The card front is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through Big Shot with Falling Petals EF.
  • Cut a Lace Doily in half and attach at top of card front at an angle with multipurpose glue.
  • Cut heart shape from Thick Whisper White.  Using the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies cut pattern in one half of heart shape.
  • The background behind the heart was created with water color paper and using the dry color pigment from Ken Oliver’s Color Burst and spritzing the paper with water.  See video on Rambling Rose Studio’s facebook page.  Cut half heart shape with same die used to create original heart and attach behind with multipurpose glue.
  • Add heart with background at an angle over the Lace Doily with dimensionals.

This card is beautiful in person…textural and sophisticated.

Our spring weather is back after a day of rain…so looking forward to planting all my flower containers and flower beds.  Hope your weather wherever you are in the world is improving too.  My Australian friends tell me it is too hot and in Canada my friends say it is too cold.  Soon we should all be just right!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Keep those finger inky…be HaPpY!

  1. Love your card! I’ll have to go back & check out your facebook page to see the technique you used. I really enjoy your blog Billie!

    • Yes, Rosemary, do go to the facebook page and check out the technique video. I’ve got to try to grab that file and post it here. So far I haven’t figured out how…B!

  2. I really enjoy your Blog-site! Especially the
    “B-ism’s”. I can be having a difficult day then I see your quote and cute pictures and it always seems to make me laugh, smile, or even say Amen. Even if I see an older post/project the quote that you put for that day is exactly what I need to read……Thanks. Please keep it up, I love them. God bless you!

    • That’s wonderful Bonnie. I, too, get inspiration from the quotes and love sharing them. I hope you stop by often and always find inspiration!…B!
