August Stamp of the Month - For the Love of Crafting
I know that many of my customers have been waiting for this month to get here because of this stamp set! There are so many crafty images and sayings in this set. When we attend Close To My Heart's convention, it is tradition to get your convention roomies a little something. I decided to use this stamp set to make a fun gift for my convention roomies this year.
I started with a bunch of 1 3/4" stitched hearts thin cuts in lots of bright colors and added them to a white background. Next I stamped several of the images and cut them out. I used my ShinHan Touch Twin markers to color the letters. Then I worked with the images and a few extra hearts (a larger and smaller heart than my background hearts) to create dimension. I made layers using 3D foam tape and dots along with Thin foam tape and dots. My final touch was to scatter some bitty sparkles around on the heart background.
I found the 5x7 shadow box frame at Michael's. I made three of these. I'm kind of sad that I gave them all away because now I don't have one for myself! I'm thinking about making a larger version for a bigger frame. We shall see where that ends up on my TO DO list.
Here are the products I used on this project:
Inks: Black Ink & Willow Ink
ShinHan Touch Twin Markers:
3D Foam Tape
Thin Foam Tape
Thin 3D Dots
Stitched Hearts Thin Cuts
