Cross My Heart with Pamela

Hello everyone! This is Pamela on the blog with a card using the newly released Cross My Heart. There are many combinations with the large and small sentiments, but today, I'm focusing on just the large one. I first stamped and embossed the "love you" on my card based. I used some eclipse masking tape and masked off the top and a circle for the background. I coloured in the Alpine Carolers couple (again!)

DS - Cross My Heart

Now it's time for some watercolouring! I coloured the background using various distress inks. Since the sentiment was clear embossed, it resisted the colours perfectly.

DS - Cross My Heart

Here is the complete card! The couple was adhered with some foam tape on top of the card base.

DS - Cross My Heart

Thanks for looking!

STAMP HIGHLIGHT : BALLOON LETTERS & BALLOON ET CETERA

Today we end Stamp Highlights with Balloon Letters and Balloon Et Cetera. When we designed our Anniversary Party Flyer with the number and animal balloons, we knew right away that it needed to be a stamp set so we can share the fun! I truly had a blast personalizing my cards with these two sets!





How fun are these projects?!


Ashley created a balloon bunch with the fun animals from Balloon Et Cetera. We love how they are anchored to the hello die and how she customized the sentiment with a stamp from Cross My Heart!


These pandas are flying through the air with sweet message! The letters from Balloon Letters pair perfectly with the heart shape from Balloon Et Cetera!



Nichol created a one layer scene card by stamping balloons from both the Balloon Letters and Balloon Etc. stamp sets and pairing them with a sweet panda from Pandamonium. She gave the scene dimension with some simple coloring creating clouds and a landscape with Copic markers.


Elena created this beautiful baby tag, highlighting the animal-shaped balloons by clustering them in a bunch and cutting them out. We love how she added shading to the solid images!


Elena also created a cute airmail scene by pairing the new heart-shaped balloon with the envelope from Pandamonium and the twirly trail from No Peeking. We love the glossy balloon and the use of the cloud border!


Elena made such a cute card! We love the Alpine Carolers holding bright red, glossy balloon! This card definitely makes us feel merry!


Geralyn's giant cake she created with Modern Borders is perfect for the 'Hooray' cake topper she stamped with Balloon Letters! We love how she added glossy accents on top of each letter to really let them shine.


Laura combined the Just Hatched & Everyday Greetings stamp sets with Balloon Et Cetera to create this adorable 2nd birthday card.


How fun is this little polaroid frame? Pamela decorated the frame using the little princess from Bootastic and the adorable balloons from Balloon Et Cetera!


The balloon letters are perfect for simple sentiments! Pamela stamped the letters with the new Mama Elephant inks and embellished it with the cloud from Around We Go and the string from Peace on Earth.

Thank you all for joining us for a week of inspiration!

STAMP HIGHLIGHT : CROSS MY HEART

We are highlighting Cross My Heart today. Who doesn't love a mushy sentiment set?



Today I have much love for these projects...


Ashley's mini card is the perfect valentine! The die cut cat is the perfect touch to this sweet sentiment.


Nichol created a fun love-themed shaker card, combining the Cross My Heart sentiments with the sweet Purr-fect Pair stamps and creative cuts dies.


Elena used the back of a stamp block to quickly watercolor a focal area, perfect for adding a sentiment that stands on its own in the middle of a card. We love the addition of the bright aqua balloon too!


Laura combined the Alpine Carolers to create this heartfelt card. She also used one of the landscape trio dies as a template to draw her snowy hill.
