Forever Shimmers

Did you ever try to look ahead into your future, trying to visualize, imagine, or conceptualize 'if' and 'who' you would marry some day?  Alas, we are not granted the actual vision or knowledge, but imagining and romanticizing that possibility is the topic of many a young girl's dreams for sure.   

I can tell you right now ... the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits are for much more than just Valentines.  I'll be using it year-round ... and here's why:

I've had a long love affair with stamping by now ... and honestly ... this will be the wedding card I give in the foreseeable future ... maybe even all of my future.   Over the years I've given wedding creations that I really liked, and a couple that I didn't really like at all, but it was "time to leave".  

If you've never used Stampin' Up!'s Shimmery White card stock ... why not?   I've adjusted the lighting here a bit to show the fascinating beauty of this specialty card stock.  When you seek to create elegance, this is an option worthy of consideration indeed.

As you can see, the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits dies includes 2 blossom dies that match the blossom stamps from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  Here, I've layered the die cut blossoms atop the Bloomin' Hearts cut out and added tiny Pearl Basic Jewels with our Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

This beautifully written sentiment is found in the Suite Sayings stamp set from page 41 of the Occasions catalog.  This set really has some lovely messages within.  You'll want to be sure to check it out.  

Not only is this a terrific time to gather new lovelies for your stamping table and get free goodies from Sale-A-Bration ... but it's also a most exciting time for all of you who would like to purchase the starter kit for your own discount shopping pleasure.  Check out the possibilities right here, and feel welcome to contact me with any questions at any time.

  1. This card is beautiful! I love the Bloomin' Heart Thinlet. I am wondering and it is probably very obvious but haven't totally figured out how you kept the die cut heart from popping out of the cardstock. Is that a dumb question? Perhaps you just popped it back in when you were assembling?

  2. Thank you, Lois! I used the Big Shot Die Brush to clean out all the cut-out bits, keeping it flat. Then I put bitty little dots of glue behind several intersecting parts of the die cut before inserting it back into the place from which it was cut originally. ;)

  3. Woohoooo I have been looking for the way to do this for months and months online and your card is exactly what I have been looking for! Thank you very much indeed you have made this lady a really happy bunny. Thank you again........ xxxx. Margaret
