I finally broke down and bought a die I've had my eye on for over a year now. Detailed Hearts finally jumped into my basket as a hostess half-price item and I couldn't NOT justify getting it! Plus, I had the cute new Punch Party Sale-A-Bration hostess free set with its great sentiments and heart shape just perfect to coordinate. It was meant to be!
I walked through these cards and showed how to make the glitter window at the end of this Facebook Live. If you're not following Song of My Heart on Facebook, you should! I pop on randomly and share what's making me happy throughout the week.
I love the samples in the catalogs using this die, so my first play session had to be watercoloring. First, I watercolored the background, and layered the die in Basic White over the top. So pretty! Then, I watercolored the die cut itself (drying it with the Heat Tool so it would dry flat and fast) and layered it on white. I could have keep playing with this for a long time!
One thing you'll notice if you add this die to your collection is that it makes a TON of heart confetti for free : )
I couldn't just throw that out, so I used the glitter window technique from waaaaay back when, to use them up! Have you ever done the glitter window? It's super cute and fast.
All you do is take a long piece of clear packing tape, press it onto your hearts or confetti to pick them up, then press onto glitter to fill in all the blank areas on the tape. "Seal" the strip of glittery tape with a second layer so the glitter is all covered. Then trim the tape strip into any shape you want.
For this card, I used white glitter for in between my heart confetti, and Magenta Madness cardstock behind it so the pink color came through. It's a super fun technique--you've gotta try it! I love that it doesn't shed glitter everywhere.
Can you see why I thought this fun die would be a good addition to my shelf? Thanks for visiting Song of My Heart today. Please leave a comment, click like, or pin a photo or two--thank you!
