Hearts and Flowers

CAS Mix Up January 2020 Challenge

I chose another digi stamp I’ve had for a long time, probably a freebie found on Pinterest but I’m not sure. I coloured it with a mix of Ink Pencils and some Sakura sparkle pens. I hand cut the image on one side and also around the heart center so it is partially cut but not with a die. (Hopefully it still qualifies for the challenge.) I added foam tape to the back to pop it up from the card front. I used a sentiment from Gina K called Wreath Builder and heat set it with Cosmic Shimmer powder.

  1. Thanks Judy – I had some trouble fussy cutting this one and almost cut off some of the flowers. I love my new Derwent Intenseink pencils and find colouring with pencils so much easier than using Copics or Spectrum Noir markers.


    1. Yes – sometimes I don’t know where my head is at, as when my hands are bad, like now, fussy cutting is pretty difficult. It worked out in the end.


  2. Thanks Gerry – my new inktense pencils are great as they give beautiful rich colour and look like inks when dry.


  3. Beautiful card! Love your pretty heart opening and your gorgeous spray of roses. Great fussy-cutting to create a partial die-cut! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. I love how it looks with being partially cut out and then popping it up added beautiful dimension. The fussy cutting may have been difficult, but it is beautiful! Love your coloring, as well.

  6. Thanks Golda – generally I like fussy cutting but doing it on a day when my hands hurt was a bit silly. They sure ached that day and night.
