Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Craft Fair makes : Heart Plaque – Layering Love
Something different from me today, I enjoy doing these little plaques and they prove very popular when I have a craft fair. I have quite a few to make but this is the only one I have totally finished the rest will be done tomorrow ready for my fair on Saturday.
My heart shape wooden plaques are actually coasters, but I really like the size of them for these. I used a paper from the Pop of Pink DSP pack, Its a bit brighter than I usually use but I quite like it.
I have stamped the Live Laugh Love using the Layering Love stamp set with Night of Navy ink.
I used Multipurpose liquid glue to stick the stamped paper on to my heart and left it for a while to dry. I then cut round the edges to get as close as possible before using fine sandpaper to get rid of any bits still over the edge. I distressed round the edges with Melon Mambo ink.
I normally use the same paper to add some distressed butterflies but for this one I went with a contrast instead, using Night of Navy card for my butterflies and flowers, and finishing them off with Rhinestone basic jewels.
I always seal my finished hearts, for this I give them 2 coats of Mod Podge making sure I get into all the crevices on the embellishments, this makes them really durable and keeps everything from getting knocked off.
Lastly I added some Burlap Ribbon, this is normally a bit thick for these but because of the way it is made it can be trimmed thinner.
Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day, I have a really bad habit of leaving things till the last minute and doing other stuff instead. I am very good at procrastination and I dont even have to try it comes naturally 🙂
