For this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge, I broke in one of the new dies from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. The Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies are an amazing collection of hearts that are perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond. I let this lacy and lovely heart take center stage on my card. Here’s my card:
- Be Mine. While the sketch calls for a band across the card front with a big, bold sentiment, it’s the lacy heart that sets the tone and color mood for my card. I’m in love with the collection of hearts in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. Just in time for Valentine’s Day – but perfect for weddings, anniversaries or any other occasions that celebrate love. Just look at the variety of hearts in this collection:Confession time – I really wanted to make my card with the band of hearts in the lower, right of the picture above. I have a great idea for this band of hearts that I’ll complete and share sometime soon. This card, though, showcases the lacy heart in the top, center – I kept coming back to it, so I had to go with it.
- Layering Love. Who doesn’t love love? The Mossy Meadow “love” is cropped from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies and layered over the Blushing Bride heart from the Be Mine Framelits Dies. Both are glued down with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cropped the band across my card to make sure that the heart could hang over the edges of the band. The pink heart pops against the white band and blends into the Crumb Cake. The sentiment pops above them both. I was really happy with how this layering worked out.The pink heart also pops against the Blushing Bride layer along the base of the card. I added texture to that panel with my all-time favorite embossing folder – the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. <3
- A Gorgeous Trio. I’m so happy Mossy Meadow made its way back into our color collection this year. I missed it while it was gone and am so happy to be able to play with it again. I’ve used this combination of Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow before – and I’ll use it again. The combination makes me so happy. If you like this mix of Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow, please save this:
