Heartfelt Thanks - SugarPea Designs Tutorial

I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day. I'm sure by now you are all done with all the hearts and pink and red and I promise this will be the last of my pink cards for awhile (maybe).

This a little tutorial I did for the SugarPea Designs Blog this week. I combined a clean and simple design with some mixed media.

I love to use dies in different ways and so for my card, I decided to use the Notched Heart Journal Card die to make a stencil by using it to cut a thin piece of acetate. This was a piece of packaging I saved from a stamp set. I used the acetate so that I can reuse the stencil for awhile since this material holds up better than cardstock but if you were only going to use it once, you could easily use a heavier piece of cardstock or light weight chipboard.

Using post-it notes, I masked off a section of my cardstock that is approximately 2”.

I then sponged some distress ink onto the area that I masked off.

I then mixed a little modeling paste and a couple sprays of dye ink together to get a darker pink paste.

I laid down my stencil and applied my paste over the hearts.

When you are done, remove the post-it notes. This technique gives your card some dimension and texture but not a lot of weight. You could also add some glitter to the paste if you wanted or use an iridescent paste.

After your panel has dried, embellish as you wish, add you sentiment and adhere to your card base.

Products Used:
Stamp Set - Foxy Friends
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black, Spun Sugar Distress Ink
Paper - SS White, Raspberry Fizz
Notched Heart Journal Card, Modeling Paste, Dylusions Cherry Pie spray, embroidery floss, adhesive gems
