From My Heart - 2013 In Colors Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple

This is one of the cards we made at one of my Stamp Camp last month. I am so in love with these new In Colors - Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple! And how about the From My Heart stamp set with its coordination to some the Framelits from Stampin' Up! Also, this Apothecary Accents Framelit coordinates with one the Paper Piercing Templates - I love that!

I stamped the image from the stamp set From My Heart in Midnight Muse ink (and yes I DO LOVE the new Firm Foam ink pads!) onto Whisper White. Then I layered the larger die from Apothecary Accents Framelits over the stamped image. That is one of the nicest things about the Framelits - you can stamp first, die cut second. To be sure the Framelit stays centered over the stamped image, I put a Post-it note over it to lightly hold it in place while I run it through the Big Shot. The Post-it removes from the die cut easily with no residue.  I sprayed it with a light spray of Shimmer Paint Champagne and rubbing alcohol to give it a little shimmer. Finally, I used one of the Paper Piercing Templates to paper pierce around the enge of the stamped die cut.

TIP: Don't overspray your stamped images with this mix or the ink will run and smear a bit. A few light spritz's from about 8 inches is just right.

I ran the card base of Midnight Muse through the Big Shot machine with one of the Adorning Accents Folders. To finish the card, I tied a knot in a length of Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon. Then I pushed both ends through the holes of a Vintage Faceted Button. I punched two holes in the Raspberry Ripple cardstock with the 1/16" Punch and threaded the ribbon through this layer to keep it more secure.
