Love U 05546
I’ll admit…I was stumped for a while trying to figure out the non-traditional part for a guy. Then I remembered I had this wonderful Marble Feathers Background and I thought if I brayered a background w/ a non-traditional rainbow of colors then stamped it on top, it might just work. After I did that, I die cut the large rectangle then the large Heart out of it. I hand cut a slightly larger heart out of black to border the marbled heart.

The Love was die cut twice out of white & once out of black to shadow it, then the 2 white die cuts stacked on top for dimension before the black cut was added a little lower. The U and arrow were done the same way (except reversed colors) and added below the heart.

Here’s a little look at the inside. I used some of the left over marbled background and the Mini Scroll Heart die.

  3. Julie! I’ve been thinking I need that marble background for a while. SO nice to see it in action – it’s really beautiful! I love all the color you added to your design (of course). I’m like a kid in a candy shop!

  4. Lovely card!

  5. Julie I LOVE how you used the Marble Feathers background. It really pops and gives the hearts a very fun feel. It really highlights the Love die too!

  6. Wow, amazing the way you used this background stamp! Wonderful card! Happy to see you back,Julie .

  7. I love your feathered marble stamp. It makes it look like the shaving cream technique with the way you brayered on your colours. Beautiful work my friend.

  8. Love how you colored the background and die cut the heart with it!! Fabulous!! Inspiring me to think about my BGs and using in different ways!!
