STAMPlorations inspiration #3

Another inspiration card for you today, revisiting MOM Subway Art Builders #5 - Unconditional Love



A belated Valentine for Mom? Or an early Mother's Day card? Either way lots of fun playing with inlaid die cuts and Distress Inks!



Die cut the front panel with the Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle die. Stamped the sentiment. Did the die cutting for inlaid die cuts using SSS Large Hearts, overlapping several hearts in the process. TIP: Jennifer M. has a great video for this technique here. I used washi tape on the backside to hold my already-die-cut pieces in place when die cutting the next heart.

Inked the hearts. Sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink around negative heart edges. Adhered panel to card front and then  put the hearts back in.

Remember, we have a CASEplorations Playground over at STAMPlorations. If you CASE one of the cards a DT member has created for an Inspiration Post during February (like this one), post it here for a chance to win a $15 GC.

Love this, Maria! Dare I say, "cutting edge?" (sorry..) Wonderful idea for either a mumsy valentine, or a Mother's day card. Love the blue blending; pulls everything together. Super card. Bev
