Happy New Year Kat Scrappiness Fans!
I want to wish you all a happy early Valentine’s Day as well
since this post will be centered around our new
“Love” themed products!
There was recently 4 new products released in the shop and if you
haven’t seen them yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Kat Scrappiness just released 3 new dies and 1 new stamp set to help
get you in the Valentines mood!
Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays
mostly because of the color scheme and pretty hearts.
I’ve always loved the decorations and the way the stores look
at this time of year. It’s a wonderful sea of pink and hearts!
I created 3 cards with the new products that I’ll share today and I have
some process pictures to share with you for one of them.
Here is the first card I made using the I LoveYou Shadow Dies
and I’ll share the process with you.
For this card I made my own background by ink blending
3 different distress inks in the following colors:
Even though I only used 3 colors it looks like so much more
because of the blending properties of the distress inks!
This is my favorite color combo right now and I
am reaching for them a lot!
Once I got the background blended just the way I wanted it
I pulled out a heart stencil from my stash and used it to
cover the background in soft white hearts.
I had an old makeup brush on hand that worked perfectly
to apply the white ink.
After the hearts were stenciled in I hit the panel with my heat gun
so it wouldn’t smear in my Vagabond.
I used the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies to cut
out the panel for the front of my card.
The next step was to pick out colors that I wanted to die cut
the I Love You Shadow Dies out of.
I knew I wanted the shadow pieces to be black since
it makes the rainbow colors pop.
I decided on some sparkly pink paper for the actual words.
Once I adhered the words to their black shadows I popped them
all up on foam tape so they would really stand out on the card.
And of course I needed to add some Sparkling Clear Jewels to the card
for some extra BLING!
I really love how this card turned out and I am planning on making a lot
more ink blended cards in the near future.
Here are all 3 cards that I made for the new release and I can tell there
will be a lot more LOVELY HEART cards very very soon!
As you can also see I used the ink blending technique on all 3 of
these cards in different ways.
Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share my cards with you!
I am enjoying the new stamps and dies and I know you will too!
