The Design Team at My Pink Stamper is having our first "official" post as a group today over on Robyn's Blog. I am so very lucky to be working with these very talented women. I have been having a great time getting to know them all. Our challenge for January was to use PINK, LOVE and either the Love-alicious or Happiest Moments stamp set from the My Pink Stamper collection of stamps. Please go over to My Pink Stamper and check out all the creativity in these projects :-)
I bought a package of Shimmer Sheetz by Elizabeth Craft Designs when Patty and Traci and I went on our stamping "field trip" recently. Patty was in love with these sheets and I thought I would give it a try and it was PINK!
I had an idea in my head and wanted to see if it would work. I made a file in my Gypsy for the front of the card to be cut on the the Shimmer Sheetz. It is a mylar--sort of like a thick transparency. I used a multi-cut of 3.
As you can see, I cut hearts and a journaling spot out and was using the negative. The hearts will have a home on another project.
The next step was to trace the hearts onto the paper that would lay underneath the Shimmer Sheetz. I ended up using another pattern of paper in the end, but did it the exact same way.
My next idea--use every stamp on the Love-alicious stamp set! And...I did! I masked off each heart I had traced with scrap paper. Added random stamps to a block and stamped over each individual heart.
This is what it looked like when that part was done. Quite the mess, wouldn't you say? But not for long!
The Shimmer Sheetz was added back onto and I really loved the look! I stamped and embossed the sentiment, also from the set, added some ribbon, a pin and used a Martha Stewart Hearts punch along the side of the card.
