Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Red Hot Love

Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is "Red Hot Love".  We were challenged to make a monochromatic project.  I chose the Always in My Heart Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue and to do some blending using the new Blending Brushes.  I love how this card turned out.  What do you think?


  1. Cut Real Red cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut detailed heart from Shimmery White cardstock using die.  
  3. Cut Shimmery White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4
  4. Using the stencil you cut out, use your Blending Brushes to apply Real Red ink over the entire piece.
  5. Remove the stencil and apply a light coat of ink with your Blending Brush over the white image.
  6. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut out heart from detail die from Real Red cardstock.  Emboss using Tasteful Textile embossing folder.
  8. Adhere to the middle of the stenciled image using Dimensionals.
  9. Cut out banner from Shimmery White cardstock.  Apply Real Red ink with your Blending Brush
  10. Stamp sentiment using Real Red ink.
  11. Fold and adhere to the centre of the heart using Dimensionals.
  12. Colour Rhinestones with Dark Real Red Stampin' Blend and adhere to card base.
  13. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  14. Cut the heart edge from Real Red cardstock using die.
  15. Adhere to the bottom of the Basic White piece using Stampin' Seal.
  16. Stamp sentiment using Real Red ink.
  17. Adhere to the inside of the card using Stampin' Seal.
The supply list for this card is at the bottom of the post.
