Love cards | Stamped and cut
Posted on 13 Jan 2017
By now we hope you have settled into the routine for the new year.
Here at Chiswick it is back to normal with loads of creative projects happening.
I am in full Valentine’s day mode – simply because we know how time flies and we want you to be super prepared to celebrate the month of love.
I created 2 cards using some off-cut backgrounds I had lying around, but it is my Chiswick stamps that added that special touch.
step 1 – I always have scrap pieces of cardstock in my stash. Some are left overs, some are experiments and some are just random drippings.
For these cards I pulled out some of those scraps and used them as backgrounds.
step 3 – For my second card I stamped the entire Alphabet stamp onto patterned paper.
I kept the stamp set on the backing as is and stamped it twice overlapping each other slightly for an interesting effect.
step 5 – Put your die-cut elements through the Xyron machine to add permanent adhesive to the back of the die-cuts.
This adds an adhesive to the back of your fine and detailed die-cuts so you can adhere them in a few seconds without the mess and fuss of liquid adhesives.
step 7 – Trim the strip of stamped alphabet down to 3cm wide and matt it onto the pink cardstock.
Adhere the strip running across your second card, add your die-cut pink heart and grey die-cut word.
Finish off your cards with a single diamante and some machine sewing.
And in a few minutes I made some stunning love themed cards using some of my favourite stamps and coloured cardstock from Chiswick.
