Love Is In The Air

I recently became an "influencer" for Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club and today I'm sharing my projects using the Jan. club called A Lotta Love. I also used their new Love You More die set.

Aren't these cool! I have to admit the blue card was a challenge and it took me 2 tries then I had an ah ha moment!! And it worked!

I die cut 2 colors of blue but couldn't get them to line up perfectly on my dark blue layer. Then I thought, lay my larger die cut pieces BACK in the die (with a hint of removable adhesive on the front of the pieces), add my adhesive to the back of my paper pieces and adhere my dark blue. Oh my gosh but it worked!!! All the larger pieces lined up perfectly and I could add my little hearts and white fancy cut large heart! Loved it! Want to see what I did?

After I die cut 2 different blue card stocks I put every other blue back in the die.This was before I added my adhesive to the back (showing) of the pieces. I love those ah ha moments!!

Here's the close up of my center heart. I added flowers I made using Spellbinders' Petite Floral Potpourri die set and the sentiment from their Love You More die set. I added some color to the flowers using my finger daubers and some pearls for bling. Oh, I also added some Stardust Clear Gel pen to the 3 flower centers and on the white parts of the words.  I love this!

For this card I only used the large heart die and the flower strip.  I had to shim a little to get the die to cut completely through the red card stock. I think my Platinum 6 is not as strong as it used to be but then I've had it many years and it's cut a LOT of paper!

I wanted the flowers to be very bright as they didn't really show up as pastels. My Bearly Art Glue got a work out with all those flowers! A bunch of red heart stickers were used for bling.

Bless the Lord, O my soul;

And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits:

3 Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

4 Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV
