The Heart Defined
Here's a fun little design using discarded, old dictionary pages as designer paper. If you look at the panel behind the layered heart, you will see different definitions for "heart..."
I used Spellbinder's "Classic Heart" dies to cut the layers of hearts. After cutting, I folded each heart in half, then stitched them together with my sewing machine. I placed pop dots between the layers to keep them up, adding dimension. The layered heart was then attached to a Spellbinder "Classic Scalloped Heart."
Graphic 45's 8 X 8" "Curtain Call" was used along with the "vintage" dictionary.
The sentiment is Verve's "Blessings" stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink, and die cut with a Spellbinders "Pennant" die. Kaisercraft Rhinestones add a finishing touch.
All supplies are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
Be sure to keep your eyes open for old atlas or dictionaries. They can add a definite shabby appeal to your designs!
Have a great week!
