You're My Forever Love ft. STAMPlorations


Hello and welcome! Today's the first day of our Love TAGplorations blog hop over at STAMPlorations! Simply leave a comment along the blogs you visited or join our linky party for a chance to win prizes!

 I love using word dies on my cards and so I decided to make them the focal point of today's card. For the background, I used the Forever word die and die cut it repetitively until it has filled the entire card panel. 

Then I carefully transfer and piece the die cuts together on a sheet of adhesive, so that none of the little pieces will fall apart. (As you can see, I ended up creating a black background for my card, but the process is the same as the one shown here.)


I decorated my tag by applying a thin coat of texture paste over the Zen Hearts stencil. Once it is dry, I applied Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Festive Berries distress inks for the ombre look and spritzed some pearlized water for some shimmer and shine. The love die cut I used here is from the Peace Love Joy word die, but it would probably be more convenient to use the newly released Love word die. I've partially embossed my word die cuts with silver embossing powder so they match the ribbon I tied on the tag. I then stamped "you're my" from the Fond Expressions 2 set on a strip of black cardstock to complete my sentiment.


Finally, I embellished the card with some sequins and that finishes off the card! I hope you have enjoyed looking at my creation and are inspired to join our linky party. Thanks for stopping by!
