Today you'll se projects created using Bunch of Hearts Flopsey and he's so darn cute!!!


I started by stamping Flopsey onto sahara sand card stock then I added some shading with grey markers. I wanted the hearts to be bright and cheery so I stamped them on cream card stock and coloured them with copics.

But bright hearts just wasn't enough...I needed dimension too. To achieve this effect I stamped the hearts three times, coloured them, then cut them out and layered them with foam boosters. I adorned the top heart even more by coating it with a layer of stardust Stickles, then a coat of glossy accents once the Stickles was dry.


Check out that giant heart, cut from patterned paper thanks to the new Layered Heart die-namics. I used the largest heart to cut out the patterned paper, then I used the layered heart as a template to add the perfectly spaced rhinestones. To create this effect, simply line up the layered die onto your cut out heart and use a mechanical pencil to mark the holes (because the pencil lead is thin enough to fit into the pokey holes). But if you don't have a pencil with a small enough lead, just cut out the layered heart and you'll be able to used the card stock heart as a guide, and the holes will be bigger.  :-)

The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Love Me and I used the first place award ribbon die-namics to cut out the double ended banner for the sentiment. The dainty dots border was perfect for cutting out some strawberry ice cream felt and stitching it to the bottom.

Here are the die-namics I used.

Thanks for stopping by!
