Kisses Release Blog Hop

Howdy, crafty friends. Today’s cards are part of THIS fun blog hop celebrating THIS new release…

You can watch the video on how I created these cards HERE or click on the video below…

I started by die-cutting THIS heart chain die several times from colored cardstock. I chose to go with a rainbow pattern because that’s my jam, but you could use any colors you want. I think specialty cardstocks would be great for this too.

For the first card, I adhered the outer part of the chain border die first. Starting with pink and working my way down the card to blue. Next, I adhered the center part of each heart inside the openings. Then, I went back and adhered two more layers of the outer portion of the die to add lots of dimension.

I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set in black and used THIS coordinating die to cut it out. I adhered it on top of the die cuts as well as one of THESE sentiment strips…

I had a lot of die cut hearts left over from my first card, so I used them to create a second card…

To get all of the hearts lined up, I temporarily taped the outer portion of the die to a black background. I used this for spacing and lining up the hearts. I adhered hearts in the openings. In some openings, I adhered two. On others, I did three. Some I did one. I just mixed it up to create different levels of dimension.

I repeated the process working my way down the card. I spritzed it with THIS shimmer spray for some shine…

I finished it off with a sentiment from the same stamp set and sentiment strip.

I also stamped THIS background stamp on the flap of each envelope to tie everything together…

    Heather I love your cards! So cool that you made double duty of one die for two cards. Using the “scraps” for a second card really can stretch your supplies!
