True love stem

Hello there!

I didn’t craft as much as I would have liked today, but I did make this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Ever since my glitter pastes dried up, I’ve been trying out new glittery pastes and today I used the Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle paste for the first time. Oh my goodness! The shimmer is amazing! I will post a little video of it over on Instagram!

Anyway, back to the card. I created the central strip using the paste over the Falling Hearts stencil by Simon Says Stamp. While I was waiting for that to dry, I cut the Poppystamps True Love Stem die from a couple of distress ink backgrounds; I then trimmed off the hearts from the purple/grey die cut and adhered them to the green die cut.

I pondered where to place the sentiment until I saw that there was a ‘perfect’ natural opening in the stencilled background that would fit a sentiment from my new Reverse Confetti set! Really very relieved that I didn’t mess up that stamping!

Thanks for stopping by!
