Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop where we are sharing projects using our favorite bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Today's card is something I created to challenge myself to use the Hearts & Kisses Bundle in a unique way. After a late-night crafting session, here is what I designed.
I finally dug into my stash of Foam Adhesive Sheets. Why have I waited to use these? This amazing product may have slipped past you as you paged through the Annual Catalog (page 162). These are double-sided adhesive foam sheets that you can cut with Paper Snips or use with certain Dies. I placed the cardstock on one side, placed the Die on top of it and put it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Ta- da! A three-dimensional greeting ready to peel the other backing off and adhere to a project!
I used the Well Written Framelits Dies to create the word "hugs". I used "happy" for the H, "you" for the U, "groom" for the G and "miss" for the S. I cut each letter from the words and carefully attached each letter together. I was quite surprised that the seams didn't show. Though, I was quite happy that there was an ampersand Die that I didn't need to piece together.
This gatefold card needed a sentiment on the inside. First, I used the background image by inking it up in Real Red Ink and stamping it off once. Then, I used a sentiment from the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink.
The final touch to the card was to use a scrap of Basic White Cardstock and stamp the lip image in Real Red Ink. Punched it out with the Kiss Punch and attached it with Dimensionals. I kept looking at the card thinking that it needed something and I finally figured it out! A Rhinestone Basic Jewel added a Marilyn Monroe look to this card.
