Hello and welcome to Day One Countdown of MFT’s January Card Kit, Heart Art. You’re going to LOVE this kit—a fun stamp set and Die-namics for the win! Release is on January 22 at 10am Eastern and included the a new Stacey Yakula release as well!
For this card I started by doing a watercolor wash on some Ranger Watercolor Paper after heat embossing Scattered Hearts Background from the January Release and splattered it with some black acrylic ink. Next I cut it with Mini Heart Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, which is the Mid-Month Free with $60 die. I used some acetate for the window, built up my shaker element with foam tape, filled it with sequins and seed beads (see below for colors) and cover the back with a stamp from Heart Art Stamp Set. To get it centered properly, I covered the back with more acetate first, then I could turn it right side up to line it up on the stamped image. It’s like a treasure hunt—you shake the sequins around to see the whole message ;-)
Then I popped the whole thing up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added the rest of the letters to spell LOVE, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with Double the Love Die-namics, and popped up on foam tape. To finish off I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment, which is part of one from Sweet Celebrations Stamp Set also from the January Release, on a strip of Black Licorice card stock.
And there you have it for Day One Countdown for MFT’s January Card Kit: Heart Art. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for a sneak of the new Stacey Yakula products :)
