I'm Cher from Cheryl's Window and I am so excited to share this project with you today. It's my turn again to be the guest designer at She's a Sassy Lady. These Sassies are amazing and I always feel so humbled and honored having the privilege to design with them.
This project was a lot of fun and is a lot of elements. I was inspired from the "Bless Our Nest" kit I created months back. I've really been wanting to make something like this again, and this provided the best opportunity.
I started with shapes from Love Struck 2010. The gray and pink multi-heart shape was layered using my Gypsy. I then took another basic heart from the same cartridge and enlarged it to make the large background shaped. I used my Gypsy to make sure that I could layer all my heart elements as desired, but no welding was necessary. All those little welded hearts are already part of a really great image on the Love Struck 2010 cartridge. You could easily create something similar with any shape or cartridge. The large background was cut from chipboard. I did use my Deep Cut blade and cut it multiple times. After cutting the chipboard heart, I sanded all the edges to rough them up for a shabby touch. The gray shadowed shape is Bazzill gray cardstock. The pink floral layer was cut from Echo Park's Be Mine collection.
Before adding my other layers, I took the time to color my ribbons. I used Distress Spun Sugar to color my Hug Snug ribbon to hang it from. I choose a ruffled ribbon with tulle and misted this with Tattered Angels Cherry Blossom.
While these ribbons were drying, I added all my extra layers; some Basic Grey chipboard letters covered with Stickles, some bling, metal, and lots more elements. After my ribbons were dry, I punched two holes to string my ribbon and tied it on. Lastly, I used Helmar 450 adhesive to adhere the tulle ribbon to the back of the chipboard heart.
Here are a few more views and close-ups.
I hope you find some inspiration today and create something happy!
Thank you all for stopping by today,
