Flowing Hearts

Hi there!

One of the really cute stamp sets that you can choose for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (with a qualifying purchase) is called Sprinkled Expressions.  When I first saw it in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, I was reminded of a card I saw flipping through rubber stamping blog sites.  The card had a wavy cut piece of paper adhered to the bottom edge of the card front and a bunch of punched items in various colors adhered along the wavy line.  I thought that this would make a great border treatment for scrapbook pages.  (I wish I could remember where I found the lovely greeting card that inspired these projects because I'd love to give the artist credit for their design idea. )

These 6" x 6" pages begin with base of Pool Party Textured cardstock.  A heart-patterned piece of Island Indigo paper from the Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini Catalog) was cut to 3" x 6" and then cut in half through the width making a wavy cut.  The halves were adhered to the bottom edge of each scrapbook page.  Pieces of Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, and Wisteria Wonder cardstock were die cut using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit (Occasions Mini Catalog) and the Big Shot.  The embossed/die cut hearts were scattered along the top, wavy edge of the Designer Series Paper. 

The heart image from the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set (Sale-A-Bration Brochure) was stamped three times on Whisper White cardstock for each scrapbook page using Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, and Wisteria Wonder inks.  The hearts were cut out and adhered along the outer edge of each scrapbook page.  Note that the Wisteria Wonder heart on the left scrapbook page was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The hearts on the Candy Conversations single stamp (Occasions Mini Catalog) were inked with the brush tip of the Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, and Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  These hearts were also cut out and adhered among the embossed/die cut hearts using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For my non-scrapbooking club members, the scrapbook pages easily transitioned to 3" x 6" cards.

The same process is used, but you can see that one card has a horizontal orientation and the other has a vertical orientation.

The inside sentiment area of each card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  A few of the embossed/die cut hearts were adhered to the liner and loving sentiment from the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set was inked with Wisteria Wonder ink and stamped near the embossed/die cut hearts.

The Candy Conversations single stamp was inked again with the brush tip of the Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, and Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write Markers and stamped at the top of the flap of the Whisper White Small Open-End Envelope.

If you're looking for a way to capture Valentine, Anniversary, Wedding, or just a wonderful loving feeling, these scrapbook pages (and cards) certainly fit the bill.   Thanks to the Big Shot, these projects are quick and fun to make.
