Sweet & Sassy

I should really have been doing some cleaning, but I had a card idea on my mind, and so that took priority :-) There's more time to clean afterwards.


I used some stamps from Whimsy's latest rubber stamp release. Image stamp from the Elisabeth Bell collection - Miss Sunkissed, and sentiment from SC designs - Girl Talk.The image has been stamped on to copic blending card using memento tuxedo ink, and then colored using copic markers. I cut it out after coloring using cutterbee scissors. To stamp the words on the inside of the heart, I stamped the image a second time onto a post it note, cut out part of it to use as a mask.


I cut the sentiment out using part of Whimsy's Contest Ribbon die set
On the top part I used Whimsy's double scallop border die and some espresso card stock. Somehow it looks black in the photo, but it is just a dark brown. I embellished with a little button and twine, and a few sticky rhinestones.
