(2021 c007) Valentine on Die Cut Letterpress Background
I used one of my favorite techniques for the backgrounds, I again had fun following Jennifer McGuire’s Die Cut Letterpress Technique video to create the background. I created the DIY Letterpress by cutting 3 pieces of heavy cardstock with Kat Scrappiness Star Fusion and glued together. Then I covered the top with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white EP so that I can apply ink for letterpressing and clean off and use again and again. I covered this DIY stamp with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger and placed white cardstock on top with a silicone matt on top of the cardstock & ran it through my die cutting machine to press/print. For the second background I swiped Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger.
The first card I covered the heart area in the middle on the background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder by Stampendous. The Heart was cut out of metalic cardstock using TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e for the outer cut and the center was cut out using a very old and discontinued die set called Swirled Heart by Spellbinders. The link will show you other hearts they still carry. Love was cut using Love Stamp & Cut by Hero Arts .
