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.
Our 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!
I’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!
