Back with Kelly Kent's Social Stamping Blog Hop and the Covid theme of "Hearts".
If you'd like to check out the previous themes other blog hops telling a different part of the Covid story each week, click on Kelly's name above.
Hearts isn't something I use a lot of when stamping but last week I used the Puzzle Pieces dies for another challenge and had a bit of fun, so I thought I'd do something different with them using the heart shaped puzzle die.
I chose some of the Brights Collection colours and cut a heart from Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pacific Point. I've run each through a different embossing folder and pieced them all together.
Bermuda Bay - Country Floral 3DTo make my life easier and because I didn't think I'd need adhesive sheets, I've punched a 1" circle and adhered each puzzle piece to it to hold them together - (mental note use adhesive sheet next time!!). I've added all my hearts to a square of Whisper White which I've matted with Basic Black. My greeting is stamped in Memento Black ink from Peaceful Moments. I think it suits Kelly - "you shouldn't have, but I'm so glad you did" get us all together social stamping. And the good news is - she's extending the hop for another month, so keep checking back to see what everyone's up to.
Daffodil Delight - Ornate Floral 3D
Melon Mambo - Bricks & Mortar 3D
Pacific Point - Subtle 3D
The gold heart in the centre is a sticker from the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Sticker pack. I recently picked these up in the Clearance Rack and I believe as at today they are still there if they interest you. This was my first time using them and luckily for me, when I accidentally dropped it, the placement worked as it wasn't planning on moving!
To add a bit of a twist, I've punched some of the hearts from the retired Confetti Hearts Border punch and added one to each of the Melon Mambo sections.
To finish I've diecut a Rectangle Stitched die from Bermuda Bay cardstock, snipped it in half and adhered to the back of the matted square, then added it to a base card of thick Whisper White.
Thanks for stopping by, next up we have my friend Michelle from CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge: #keepstamping everyone! 😊
