Stamping 411- Lots of Love Letterpress

Time again for Stamping 411's Sketch Challenge!  I've been really wanting to try the Letterpress debossed image plates, but hadn't time to sit down and figure it out!  So…I pulled one out for this week's challenge!

 

 

Here is my card!

 

 

I started with the base of Real Red cardstock.  Then I layered on the Letterpress Lots of Love layer, run thru the Big Shot with Pretty in Pink Craft Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I love how this plate debosses AND inks it up at the same time!  I used Stampin' Up's Filled with Love Stamp Set and two of the patterns (one Real Red, one Pretty in Pink) in the Love Patterns Designer Paper…available as the current Stampin' Up! special bundle (purchase both stamp set and designer paper and get a free container of Itty Bitty Buttons!)

 

I wrapped some 1/8 Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the red polka dot in Love Patterns Designer Paper and tied with a bow.  I stamped the Heart from Filled with Love with Pretty in Pink on Whisper White, then punched with the Full Heart punch.  It is layered on a Real Red Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I punched the Small Heart from the new Red Glitter paper that will be in the Occasions Mini Catalog!  LOVE that paper…no mess, but LOTS of sparkly BLING!  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, too!

 

What a FUN card!  I love the square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 size, too!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators did this week with the sketch!

I love that this is so clean and simple and you kept the layers to a minimum.. It didnt need anything extra.. This is totally breathtaking!  See you at leadership GF!
