10-3-14 Add A Little Dazzle Blog Hop

I had some yummy metal sheets to play with for this blog hop, and the color that I chose is called Perfect Peacock!  I placed it behind the negative space from the heart die cuts (We R Family Elle-Ments)  I die cut the stars and placed the reverse side of the Perfect Peacock metal sheet behind them.  The frame, star and bow dies came from the Finished Frames Elle-Ments die set.   The sentiment (Winter Wreath) was stamped in VersaMark and then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

That’s it for me today, sweet friends!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a blow-your-mind post chock-o-block full of stamping and die cutting deliciousness – you WON’T want to miss it!!  Oh, and if the planets align, I might even have a video for you!  Shut the front door!  LOL  Until then, toodles!!

This was my favorite card on todays blog hop even before I read how you made it. I love the way the perfect peacock metal sheet looks behind the negative space! How in the world did you cut those hearts and stars in such perfect positions?

Geri said...

This is soooooo clever! First, using a heart die to create a tree. And second, to use that GOR-GEE-OUS peacock blue! Soooooo creative!

First time visitor to your blog for the World Card Day blog hop, but wanted to see more, so here I am! What a perfect creation you've made with hearts. It's absolutely beautiful in every sense of the word. I commend your sense of spacing! I regret to say I don't have that trait but sure admire it.
