Hugs and Kisses

Hi, I'm standing in for Kate today as she has all her crafty stuff packed up for moving and is finding it hard going cold turkey with no crafting!

My card today is inspired by a song - I am really loving "Ex's and Oh's by Elle King" at the minute so I took my inspiration from the title and the new layers of love die set from Concord and 9th.   The die as the title implies gives you hearts you can layer up but on this card, I actually just used the waste from one of the 3 dies.

I inked up a scrap of white card with two shades of distress ink to give an ombre effect from pink to purple and then die cut the stripey heart after applying some stick-it to the back of the card for ease of application.  I used a bit of washi to hold the die cut in place and then popped each negative into its space before removing the die (saving it for another project)  I forgot to photograph it as I did it, but here's a shot which sort of shows you what I mean!

The sentiment is a die cut from Mama Elephant's "Type It" set, die cut from black card stock and given a thick coat of glossy accents.

Here's the quick card I made with the main die cut.  I added a scrap of dotted paper from the smitten pad from MFT using the floral outline die and a tonal "hello" from Mama Elephant as hearts aren't just for valentines!  To finish I filled in the holes punched by the floral frame with black glossy accents.

This is a really versatile die set - great value for money too with lots of looks from one product.

That's me for today - catch you on Sunday.   Kate should be back for her normal round of fabulousness next week.
