Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Protect your work surface and set the Basic White Background layer down in front on your work surface. Using the Paint Tip of the Stampin’ Blends add color until desired color depth is reached. Colors in sample are Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo. When using Stampin’ Blends, remember as the alcohol in the markers dissipates, the lines will smooth out and the colors will blend together creating a nice ombre effect. Be sure to give it time to blend to prevent over-coloring.

  5. Attach Adhesive Sheets to the back of a piece of Basic White Cardstock scrap. Die Cut two Heart Strings and snip apart with Paper Snips.
