Its another stamp heavy and die cut low post today Im Afraid I hope you all don't mind, next week is a die fest I promise! Todays card is made using another of my new stamp sets that will be showcased on Craete and Craft on the 30th April (Times TBC). This set is called Flower Hearts elements and I drew four separate hearst and filled them with flowers, either as outlines or in shadow.
I have matched these with the ivy trellis triplet stamp which was drawn again to match this set however will work in many different ways with any of the sets. I stared by stamping this in perfect medium and again, like yesterday, heat set it with cosmic shimmer detail silver embossing powder. I set this in an aperture using the triplet outline die.
To make the main elements I stamped three of the hearts in perfect medium and again heat set them with Cosmic Shimmer detail silver embossing powder. I cut this out by hand and added a mat of vintage silver foundation card. I then hand cut three flags using Creative Expressions satin ribbon in Orchid and placed the hearts over these. Finally I foam mounted them floating over the parterre and added the whole piece on a few layers of Lilac and silver foundation card.
