Stamp Review Crew: Hearts a Flutter Edition

Hooray — it’s the first Monday of the month, and that means it’s time for a one-day blog hop from The Stamp Review Crew!  Today eighteen of us will be showing off Hearts a Flutter, a stamp set (p. 124) that debuted last spring, if I remember correctly.  You’ll find matching Framelits on page 187 that are fab by themselves, but together, well … you know.

You may have arrived via Yapha’s blog, Rubber Stamping & Card Making with Yapha, showing the digital version of this set.  How cool that it’s available that way!

If you visited this blog over the weekend, you’ve already seen one sample using this set.  But I’ve got two new creations for you.  This first card uses just the striped banner stamp, but several of the Framelits.  It’s based on a challenge from Freshly Made Sketches; I show it here as a TY card, but a Valentine variation is one of this month’s camp cards.

Debra Burgin Fluttering TYOur January camp technique is Spirelli, a type of string art.  I was reminded of it when I saw one of the new stamp sets in the Occasions Catalog.  This is the card we’ll be making using the Spirelli technique.  I used a metallic embroidery floss that is somewhere between silver and gold, so I stamped the heart image in Gold Metallic Encore ink and embossed it in Iridescent Ice.  I tried one card base color after another before I settled on white, stamped in the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark ink.  Sparkly and elegant enough for a wedding or anniversary!

Debra Burgin 1401 Spirelli with heartI’ll have more details about these cards in the next few days, but meanwhile, please hop over to My Little Craft Blog to see what Beth’s been working on!

    Cute cards! I like that they are both CAS but both very different and not just banners! I really like the spirelli around the heart. It really stands out!

    Delightful uses of this set! The first card is very pretty and I really like it. But I LOVE the second card. Maybe it is the woodgrain 😉

    Way to showcase this set (and the coordinating framelits)! Love the CAS style and colors on the first and the spirelli is a gorgeous touch to the heart on the second. The embossed white on white is a beautiful touch as well.

  9. Cindy Beach says:

    I LOVE what you’ve done with this set. Two cards that are not at all alike, each is fresh and original! I love the layers of your first card–simple but with a fabulous focal point! The spirelli and gold together are so elegant too.

    Beautiful flowers inside the heart on your first card, and I love the neutral colors on the second card… lots of fun texture!

    Awesome cards, Debra! I really love the first one with the banners…Cute! Cute! Cute!

    Gorgeous cards, Debra! That spirelli technique is one I haven’t seen and it really sets your card off so well. That banner on the first card is so sweet.

  16. Beautiful projects Deb! Love the colors and layout in the first one.

  17. Lisa Young says:

    I never heard of the spirelli technique but it sure is lovely. I especially love the gold and glimmer on your card – very elegant! And I am not sure what a TY card is but I love that one too especially the colors!

  18. Carol Carriveau says:

    Love both of your cards, the second one is really wild and I love it….now to find the floss you found…great for any occasion!
