I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Die Cut Machine today for a bit of texture on this project. I also took advantage of the wood grain stamp and texture plate to create a card that looks like painted wood.

Stamped the Wood Grain stamp on a 3.75″ x 4.75″ piece of Whisper White card stock using Early Espresso ink.
Die cut the word “love” from the sticky part of a post it note using my Big Shot Machine and the Join in Cheer Die. Note when die cutting this word have the sticky part of the post it note up so it sticks to your clear plate. This will allow the word to then be turned over so it is not backwards on your sign.
Punched 3 hearts from the sticky part of a post it note.
Put my masks on my wood grain stamped panel and added a post it note on each side of the panel to mask the edges.
Brayered Cherry Cobbler ink over the masks.
Removed the masks.
Sponged Chocolate Chip ink, then early Espresso ink and then finally Basic Black ink on the edges of the card stock.
Stamped the word You on the center heart by loading just the word “You” on the Rubber stamp with an Early Espresso marker, huffing my breath on it and then stamped it.
Smeared Basic Black ink on the Wood Grain texture plate and then ran a piece of Soft Suede card stock through the Big Shot Machine with it.
Sponged Basic Black ink around the edges of the card stock.
Cut the bird and 2 branches out of Basic Black card stock using the Big Shot machine and Birds & Branches Die. Started assembling my card adding Linen Thread, a 5″ x 6.5″ Basic Black panel, my main image panel and my branches and birds die cuts.
Popped the bird’s wing up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Added spots on the card to distress it using a Basic Black marker and Stampin’ Up Color Spritzer Tool.
Added Basic Black marker Dots on each corner of the main image panel using the template from the Stampin’ Up Mat Pack.
Here is my finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May you feel nothing but love and peace today.
Until my next post. . . . . . .
