The Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Dies is probably one of my all-time favourite Stampin’ Up! Dies (and they will be in the new catalogue coming out on June 1st!). Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also so versatile! Having said that, there’s one card design idea that I wanted to share with you and I hope you love it just as much as I do.
I was asked to make this card for a friend of mine for her anniversary. As she was describing her relationship to me and the love she has for her Fiancé, one thing she told me really stood out,
“He holds the key to my heart“.
So with this, a beautiful idea came to mind and I ended up designing a card that suit their relationship so perfectly. And she loved it!
How cute is the key?! I actually found it in my ‘junk’ drawer (it’s really amazing what you can find in there!), gave it a good clean, and then put it to use! Note that there was two of the same keys, and to this day I have no idea what they are for, so I had no problem using it, hehe. The key itself is attached by using a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine.
You’ll notice that I used two Bloomin’ Heart cut-outs and just offset the colours for more of a ‘pop’. The background is embossed with the Falling Pedals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (which is on the Retiring List and on sale for an incredible 50% off right now!). You’ll also see that I used three of the hearts from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes (which is also on the Retiring List and on sale for 50% off!).
I finished off the card with a lovely sentiment, which I printed from the computer, and then cut out the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (another favourite of mine).
TIP: I used the second largest Oval Stitched Framelit, which measures 2-3/4″ x 1-5/16″. If you are using a custom printed sentiment, font sizes 18 through 22 fit best in this oval size depending how long your sentiment is.
I really love all of my Stampin’ Up stuff, so be sure to get your hands on the retiring items before they are gone for good! You can shop online in my Canadian Online Stampin’ Up! Shop. I truly appreciate being your Demonstrator.
