Jen Love Story Glitter

For my first card today I stamped a lovely new sentiment from the Love Things stamp set and then
used the new Stripes Cover Up Die as an impression plate.  I love how it looks this way!  I used a copic marker to outline the bottom of the banner to help it pop out a little.  I also used the new Floating Hearts Die to die cut a glittery red heart that I added under the sentiment.  I really like the different sizes of hearts that you get with the Floating Hearts die!

Jen Love You Arrows


For this last card I used the Striped Cover Up Plate a little differently.  I only used half of it and cut off what I didn't need (which actually cuts it in half and leaves a perfect amount for a second card!).  That just took two tiny little snips with my scissors.  I then masked my sentiment from the Love Things set and stamped it in Raspberry Fizz ink.  The largest heart and arrows were die cut with the LID Of the Heart dies.  I added a tiny little heart cut from the new Floating Hearts die to the center of the gingham heart and finished the card off by tying a piece of Blossom twine from The Twinery.
