The “An Open Heart” stamp set is perfect for so many occasions. It’s very peaceful, I think, with the bird and the greenery. The sentiments are perfect for thinking of you, thank you, or even sympathy cards. And, of course, you can use sentiments from other sets to turn it into a birthday, anniversary, or other occasion card.
I stamped the greenery in Mossy Meadow ink on the Typeset specialty designer series paper. It’s a perfect background, and I love to stamp on it. I’m so glad it’s staying around for at least another year!
The Gorgeous Grunge splatters are stamped in Tip Top Taupe – as is the sentiment. I stamped the bird two times in Early Espresso ink, then colored it with Smoky Slate, Sahara Sand, and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers. I cut out the bird, and then cut out the second wing and popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional, just to give it a little dimension. The bird is also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
After I punched the sentiment with the extra-large oval punch, I “tousled” some linen thread and gold metallic thread behind it. And, of course, I used more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the Mossy Meadow/Tip Top Taupe combination!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
