Welcome back to another super fun challenge for the Love to Scrap challenge blog, I think many folks are producing love themed cards this month, so it's a perfect time for you to join the fun!
I had so much fun creating with this new stamp and die set from Papertreyink, Branches of Love. Once again, I was inspired by Kelly's card HERE (scroll down, 2nd card shared). I stamped the branches in TE Earl Grey; die cut the branches and the 'hanging threads', then die cut lots of hearts using the matching die and TE Cupcake card stock. I love that the 4 hearts are all attached in the die package - I left them together and ran it through multiple times. I then used TE Lollipop and Watermelon to shade some of the hearts, added glue in areas and sprinkled on glitter. Goodness, I think they look amazing!
I cut all 3 of the Skinny Hearts Frames, using the largest heart die as well as the plain white border between the 2nd and 3rd largest die. I used a blending brush to create an ombre look to the heart border, I also added two more plain Skinny Hearts frames behind to add some dimension. I used a piece Bitty Big Soft Stone paper and a piece of scrap ribbon for some contrast.
I die cut the vase from Bitty Big Sweet Blush, I stamped the 2nd layer using TE Cupcake in 2nd generation...but then I stamped it twice, so there was really no need for 2nd generation stamping. 😂
I added a partial doily behind the vase and adhered everything to a white card base - oh yes, I added some super soft pink polka dots using Delightful Hearts mini set too. And not that I recommend this, but once it was completely together, I stamped the sentiment. Living dangerously!!
I added more designer paper to the inside, along with a sweet little heart! Sorry - the photos are not the best, but our weather outside is rain, rain, and a bit more rain - so had to use the office!
Thanks for stopping by; I hope you will join us at Love to Scrap this month!
