Premiere of The Write Stuff: Love Story

Hello Everyone today is the Premiere day for the stamp set

To start with my card I cut a strip of patterned paper from Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic that I got from Michaels. Then for my card base I stamped the dots and stars image from 
The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set to create my background.  

I know you've seen me used this stamp images on most of my projects this release...I just really love the versatility of it...I just love that there are so many little pieces and so easy to add on your projects like backgrounds....which if you know me by now I love to create my own backgrounds :)

Once I am done creating my card base I then embossed the heart note image on 
The Write Stuff: Love Story set on my vellum and regular cardstock. After stamping
on versamark and heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I then fussy
cut both of the images and distress my heart note on cardstock with 
Ranger Worn Lipstick. I then stamped the sentiment "TOP" from the same set.

Next, I created my elements to add on my note which includes: MAD LOVE & number 10,
and another sentiment from the same set "4EVER". For the MAD LOVE image I added a fish tail banner. The 4EVER sentiment I just stamped it on a strip of cardstock, then adhere all my pieces together on the heart.

For the bottom of the card card I cut another strip of white cardstock where I stamped another sentiment  "WHY I LOVE YOU" from the same set The Write Stuff: Love Story but the "so" is from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set. I just love that I can combine the sentiments from different sets :). I then adhere the strip on the the card, then adhere (with foam dots) the gold embossed image that I fuzzy cut from The Write Stuff: Love Story set. Lastly I stamped another sentiment from the same set "let me count the ways" to finish of my card :)

Here's the full view of the card.

For my second card I stamped the MAD LOVE image on a Raspberry Fizz cardstock with Pure Poppy ink from PTI, then fussy cut each image, but before I adhere my images I first stamped the 
"sent with love"  and the squiggly lines stamp image from You've Got Love Mail, then adhere all my MAD LOVE image with foam dots.  

I added the other sent of sentiments at the bottom of my MAD LOVE 
"i quiver for you" and "WHY I LOVE YOU" in the same set.

To finish off the card I then splatter it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mustard & Primrose.

This is how I cut those MAD LOVE images
I used the Fiskars very smallest hole punch from Michaels, I also so Recollections carries the same size of 
smallest whole punch if you are interested.  I believe Recollections carries 3 sizes of whole punch.

I then punch the sides of my image like this...

and then to cut it with my scissors with the line from the image.

I hope I have explained my process well :)

Here's the full view of my second card.

For my third card I used the cut file available to be the star.
But first I distress my card base with Ranger Peacock Feathers and then splatter it with
Studio Calico Classic Tan and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in White.

The circle with heart is from the The Write Stuff: Love Story cut file & and love is from the
The Big, the Bold, and the Happy cut file. Let me tell you this cut file is so Awesome to cut
and the design of the font is fantastic <3

What I did is just distress the circle and added vellum on the heart and color it with copic and added the
Wink of Stella Glitter Clear brush for shimmer :)

On the love cut file after coloring it with copic markers R32, R00, and R20, I then stamped the "L" with
"let me count the ways" sentiment from The Write Stuff: Love Story.

For the bottom of the card I stamped  the tip of one of the arrows on The Write Stuff: Love Story set, then
stamped the little heart that's in the You've Got Love Mail set and voila!

Here's the full view of the card.
