Hello all! I have been creating for Valentine's day and loving every minute of it! Beth from Beth's Beauties here with a duo of cards, one of which used the negative space from the die cutting of the other.
This was the first card I created. I stamped the brush strokes from Raisin Boat's Strokes of Pride stamp set and a stamp platform. The colors of Scrapbook.com inks I used from top to bottom are: Pink Flamingo, Candy Shop Pink, Confetti Pink, Mixed Berry, and Cardinal Red. I flipped the cardstock between each color, so the brush stroke would be reversed from the previous stamping. I then die cut a heart out of white cardstock and also cut a smaller heart out of the center to create a peek-a-boo for the stamping on the base layer.
At the bottom of the card, I added the LOVE sentiment from the Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set with black ink. I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Pearl Pink and Red. Once those were dry, I mounted the stamped panel onto a black layer, then adhered it to my card base.
The second card is very similar to the first, but as I mentioned earlier, I used the negative white cardstock from the die cutting of first card to create the front of this one. Once again, I stamped the brush strokes from Raisin Boat's Strokes of Pride stamp set with a stamp platform in the same manner as the first card. Then I trimmed down the die cut panel so the brush strokes would be visible on the outside of the panel as well as through the heart.
Once again, the bottom of the card was stamped with the LOVE sentiment from the Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set in black ink. I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Pearl Pink and Red. The front panel was popped up with foam tape and the card was complete!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
