I really feel like small dies and stamps get neglected a lot when we create. Actually these stamps and dies can end up being some of the most versatile of the bunch! Today I pulled out the two heart dies from the My Plate Is Full die collection and put them to good use!
Here's what I came up with:
I love how this turned out!
I started with a panel of white cardstock and die cut the hearts from it - many times! It actually didn't take that long because I put them both through at the same time, and I was going for a random 'falling' pattern so I didn't need to worry too much about positioning.
When that was all done I watercoloured my card panel, splattered on some mists and dried it with my heat tool. I then pulled out one of my all-time favourite Neat & Tangled sets - Gifts For You - and stamped my sentiments. I built up the 'A Lot' part by selectively inking some of the letters from the other sentiments - clever huh? :-) I love stretching my supplies like this! I added the full stops by hand with a marker, adhered my panel on top of some patterned paper and onto my card base and I was all done!
Do you enjoy stretching your stamps? Which other Neat & Tangled stamps or dies are you now looking at in a new light? :-)
I hope this card brought some fun to your day! Thanks for stopping by!
