Be Mine

Hidey-ho my crafty friends!  Kristina H. here with a Valentine's Day home decor project to share with you.



I have been on a roll lately making banners and non-card projects.  On to all the juicy details with lots of photos!

I did have to do a bit of extra planning for this project but it was totally worth it.  I started by using some cheap paper to cut out my banners and letters.  I needed to see if the stamps and dies I had picked out were going to fit alright.


I laid them out on the floor and then added the actual dies and stamps to give me a rough idea.  Next I picked out all of my papers and got to cutting.


Here are the banners put together after I sponged the edges with ink and added the ivory hearts.


On to gluing all of the critter pieces together.

 

I then stamped the koala, flamingo and octupus onto Ivory cardstock with a Copic safe ink.  I forgot to write down the colors I used.  Sorry about that!  After they were colored I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  Then I got down to putting everything together!

Here are close up shots of the letters as they were completed.




Here they are all together.


I used an 1/8" hole punch to cut the holes for the ribbon.  I then threaded a cream color 1/4" sheer ribbon through all of the pieces.  They were staying in place so I didn't have to add any adhesives.  For a few finishing touches I added Nuvo Jewel drops in Strawberry, Rosewater and Key Lime.  These particular ones aren't in the Dies R Us store but there are tons of other colors that would work just as well.  I'll link to them in the supply list below.  I also added a bit of Wink of Stella glitter marker to all of the letters to add a little bit of bling.

And one close up picture before I go.


This beauty is now hanging up in my living room!
