Beautiful You stamp set

I love all the new items in the Spring/Summer catalogue, but if I had to make a choice of my favourite it would have to be the ‘Beautiful You’ stamp set.  In my last blog I shared the first card I had made with this set which I designed for my granddaughters 15th birthday.

Since then I have been making more cards with this stamp set and I would like to share my latest design which I feel has turned out very well.

Red and white are one of my favourite colour combinations so that was my challenge to make a card with these colours.

I started with WHISPER WHITE card stock which measured 21 cm x 14.5  (creased at 10.5 cm).  I die cut the 6 hearts on the front of the card and then die cut the hearts on a scrap of REAL RED card stock.

I cut out the individual red hearts and glued them to the white hearts on the card front.

I stamped out the image I wanted and using my aqua paint brush and REAL RED ink pad I coloured the image and stamped out the reflection.   I thought the red wasn’t dark enough so I went over the image again with CHERRY COBBLER ink.  I was then pleased with the colour on the  image.

Lastly I added the sentiment in CHERRY COBBLER ink on to WHISPER WHITE card stock and then die-cut the sentiment with oval STITCHED framelit which I backed with REAL RED card stock.

I added red jewels and small heart (from the LOVE NOTES framelits) to give more emphasis.
