V-Day at CASology

I'm sure you've already finished your Valentine's Day cards and got them in the mail...said no cardmaker ever :) Well the CASology team has some fabulous inspirations for you this week to help you get them all done.

I love the look of subway art and couldn't resist making a "red lip" using this awesome stamp from Lil' Inker Designs! The sentiments and hearts come from Lil' Inker Designs, Concord and 9th, Paper Smooches, and Hero Arts.

To achieve the look:

  1. Shuffle through all your stamps to collect different fonts, styles, etc to pull off the subway art look.
  2. Stamp them all on little scraps and cut them out. You can move them around in your layout and see how they'll fit before actually stamping.
  3. Stamp and heat emboss your focal point (the lips are stamped with clear Versa Mark ink then embossed with Ranger red embossing powder).
  4. Stamp the lips again on masking paper (or a large sticky note like I did) and press into place.
  5. Stamp your sentiments based on your layout.
 *I added Black Soot Distress Glitter as a border on the left side for a little extra dose of fabulous :)
