At my last workshop this was one of the projects we made, using the new Stampin’ Up! Heart to Heart Stamp Set and the fabulous Big Shot Heart Framelits. These are wonderful new products and can be used in many ways to make all your projects look completely different.
This banner was made using, Real Red, Whisper White, Regal Rose. Melon Mambo and Pretty-In-Pink Card Stock.
The stamp set used was the Take It to Heart set.
The Inks I used were Black Stazon for the large heart, Real Red for the Medium Large Heart, Regal Rose for the medium Heart and Melon Mambo for the smallest heart.
I cut out all the different size hearts using the new Heart Collection Framelits Die from Stampin’ Up!.
Whisper White Satin Ribbon was used to hold all the hearts together and the bow was made from Whisper White Taffeta ribbon.
After all the hearts were layered I added Basic Rhinestone for some extra bling. I have mine hanging on one of my kitchen pantry doors and it looks great. I need to make another one for the other door. The large heart was colored in Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils.
For the large heart I used Water Color Pencils and colored in the bird to look like a Robin Red Breast, which is what I believe the bird is. It was fun blending in all the colors to try and get a realistic looking bird. I added the large scallop heart in Real Red for the background heart.
The Medium large heart was stamped in Real Red Ink and two rhinestones were added to the middle of each bicycle wheel and one to the middle of the heart
For the medium and small heart the additional Basic Rhinestone were added as shown.
I hope this banner inspires you to make one or two of your own. If you don’t own the Stampin’ Up! Heart Collection Framelits, make sure to order them. Using them is addictive. Remember I warned you!!!
This post was to appear before Valentine’s Day, but the launching of my blog took longer as you all know, so I decided to share this with you anyway. You can incorporate this banner in different colors to use as a house warming gift, wedding gift, Mother’s Day gift or as bridal shower favors.
Stampin’ Hugs to all of you,
