From My Heart for #stampingsunday

One of the things that I love about #stampingsunday (aside from lots of people using the same stamp set on the same day) is that I try to mix up the sets.  Some weeks it’s something brand new and other weeks it’s an old favorite that hasn’t seen ink in a while.  In either case, I try to challenge myself to create something totally different from the way I’ve used the image in the past.

I love the way my From My Heart turned out.  This is a case of I had no idea where I was going when I started creating.

Though I started with the focal image and worked down, I’m going to talk you up from the bottom. Reminds me of the song by Drake – “I Started From the Bottom”  Lyrics from this pop up at my house all the time.  But…

The card.  The base is Crumb Cake followed by a layer of designer paper from the Moonlight Stack. I’m in love with this paper.  I have probably pulled it out more often than any other designer paper I own.  The design of this paper was perfect for cutting and piecing.

The next layer up is a piece of Blackberry Bliss that has been shaped using an Ovals Collection framelit.  Then this piece was run through the Big Shot in the Arrows embossing folder.  This layer was added to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now the focal image was stamped twice.  The image was inked with Blackberry Bliss, stamped, moved slightly and stamped again without reapplying ink.  This creates some subtle dimension that’s hard to see in the photo.  Next the Very Vanilla piece was run through the Big Shot using an Apothecary Accents framelit.  (Don’t forget about the Big Shot bundle promotion.  See the details below my signature.)  Finally, this layer too was added using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
