- 5.5" x 4.25" card blank, side opening, made using Neenah 'Desert Storm' card stock
- then die cut a panel of Neenah 'Desert Storm' using a NBUS Lil' Inkers 'Perfect Palette Heart' die
- used the same die to die cut more hearts from the 'Desert Storm' card and also from white card
- glued the die cut panel onto the card front - then it was time to play
- first of all I stacked up 'Desert Storm' hearts, three high, to insert into some of the apertures - making sure the top layer was a stitched edge one
- glued those four stitched edge layered hearts in place on the card front
- then made up five dear little white hearts by using just two stamps from the NBUS matching Lil' Inkers set of stamps called 'Heartthrob' by first stamping the solid colours (blue, plum and red) and then the scribble stamp using Memento 'Tuxedo Black'
- glued the now stamped white hearts in place onto the card front
- I had a band of empty hearts apertures across the upper part of the card so I in-filled those with plain 'Desert Storm' hearts to level the card front off
- die cut the word 'Love' using Impression Obsession's 'Love' die from a couple of snippets of SU's 'Real Red' card, glued on on top of the other and then glued the word to a strip of Desert Storm card before using it to cover the width of the front panel
- at this point I could have stopped but felt something was missing - so I die cut another two little red hearts using the 'Love' word die (I already had two one from the fall-out waste) and popped one on each of the four 'Desert Storm' coloured stitched hearts - at the same angle as the heart cut-out in the 'Love' sentiment
The die and stamps are lovely together - loads of ways to use them and plenty of little sentiments in the set of stamps as well.
Sorry to see Lil'Inkers go, as I've said recently. I could only get hold of one set of stamps otherwise this would have made a nice Playground prize to go with a matching die like I used. Oooer, sorry I dangled that one - folk in the USA might have less of a problem finding the last Lil' Inkers stock than we do over here.
