Hello! I am back today with a project we did at a recent class. We used the Sending Love Suite on pages 14-15 in the Occasions catalog to make this seasonal home décor art piece. It came together so nicely, and each person's project looked a bit different, which is always fun to see.
The Sending Love Suite includes a very cute stamp set called Sealed with Love, the Love Notes coordinating die set, a pretty collection of designer series papers done in Real Red and Whisper White prints, 1/8" ribbon in both Real Red and Whisper White, wood veneer embellishments, glassine paper, and adorable mini paperclips, which I want a bucketful of!
The design is simply eight separate squares, and for the center, I chose to cut a red glimmer paper heart using the Bloomin' Heart thinlet, which is on page 194 of the annual catalog. In person, that heart is gorgeous! Each square is created on a 3" x 3" piece of Real Red cardstock as the base, then mounted on a piece of Silver Shimmer designer series paper from the Neutrals Collection DSP stack on page 170 of the annual catalog. Did you know there were silver and gold papers in that dsp collection? They are beautiful! You want need them in your life!
For the Sending Love veneer embellishments, I put them directly onto my ink pad to color them. I also stamped on some of them, to add a fun pattern before adhering to my project. You can see this on the 'Hello Love' square.
This piece is framed in a 10" x 10" square frame. I plan to swap out the artwork seasonally, so I have something fresh and fun to decorate with throughout the year. This is the first class in a 4 part series which I am offering this year. I will look forward to creating Spring artwork for my next class.
I kept the colors for this project simple:
