StampinB's Way to Use it
Here's a card that meets 2 challenges today. First up is the Stampin B's #96 challenge to use an embedded image. It's also for the SCS WT308 challenge to use hearts on our cards. First things first - here is the tutorial for making an embedded image. For mine, I started with PTI soft stone card stock, and stamped the PTI text with Ranger Pumice Stone ink. I cut it with a Spellbinders heart die, and then proceeded with embossing it 3 times. I stamped the flourish image by Inkadinkado with Versamark, and embossed that with claret ep. I used SU retired pomegranate cardstock to mat the heart, card base, and sentiment panel, embossing the heart with SU!'s lattice square ef and the card base with a Tim Holtz Damask texture fades ef. The sentiment is by Studio 18 MLT and I colored it with markers before stamping. a few silver heart brads was all this card needed for the finishing touch. This is going into my next Operation Write Home box because the sentiment is perfect for their cards!
The sun is actually shining today in PA, so I'm feeling warmer in spite of the cold temperatures! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your Thursday is a great one!
