Bloomin' Love Woodcut Heart
S imple, pretty Valentine or anniversary card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Crumb Cake Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" square from Crumb Cake Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" from Rose Red Cardstock
- 4" square of lighter brown wood grain pattern from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack
- 1" x 3-1/2" from Blushing Bride Cardstock
Place the square of Crumb Cake Cardstock inside the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside directly on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place a Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
VERY IMPORTANT: You are using only ONE Cutting Pad. If you try to use two, the sandwich will be too thick and you could damage the Big Shot.
Adhere the dry embossed Crumb Cake rectangle to the front of the Crumb Cake card in the center so the planks are running vertically.
Unlock the Ticket Tear Border Punch. Slide one short edge of the Rose Red Cardstock into the punch so it butts up against the guide at the back of the punch. Punch. Slide the punched paper over a little bit and line up the punched area with the silver design printed on the base of the punch. Punch again. Repeat until the entire length has been punched.
Tip: I sometimes find it easier to line things up with this punch if I turn the punch over so I can see the punching area. I then line up the punched areas with the designs of the punch before punching again.
Repeat the step above with the other end of the Rose Red Cardstock.
As you are ready to stamp on each piece of cardstock using the Bloomin' Love Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the spray of flowers image from the Bloomin' Love Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Rose Red Ink Pad. Stamp on one end of the punched Rose Red strip about 1/4" from the edge so it is centered side to side. Re-ink the stamp and stamp on the other end.
Adhere the stamped, punched Rose Red strip to the front of the card so it is centered over the dry embossed Crumb Cake square.
Mount the sentiment banner image on Block H. Ink it up with the Rose Red Ink Pad and stamp in the center of the Blushing Bride strip.
Mount the single line sentiment of your choice on Block G. Ink it up with the Rose Red Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the previously stamped sentiment banner.
Pick out the matching sentiment banner framelit from the Large Numbers Framelits. Place the stamped sentiment banner on a Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the sentiment banner framelit on top so it is centered over the image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the large detailed heart thinlit from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits. Place the square of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the large detailed heart thinlit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the pieces.
Put little dabs of SNAIL on the backs of the large flowers in the heart cut out. Adhere the heart cut out to the front of the card so it is centered over the Rose Red strip and angled slightly.
Adhere the sentiment banner to the card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals so it overlaps the seam between the Rose Red and Crumb Cake cardstocks on the bottom and overlaps the left side of the heart cut out a bit.
Pick out two large and two small iridescent sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. Use a small dot of Fine-Tip Glue Pen in the center of the flowers on the heart cut out to adhere the sequins in place. Put the large sequins on the large flowers and the small ones on the smaller flowers.
