Dare to be Different

I love experimenting with colors and mediums. Some of the best stamps to do this with are Silhouette stamps and the ones available from I Brake for Stamps are simply stunning (I'm absolutely in love with this one)

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the last day of your weekend .For my card today I sprayed a Bare Basics Double Sided Corrugated Heart from Basically Bare with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Bell Bottom Jeans and Trunk Bay and then I added some UTEE to the top. When melting it and it was still liquid, I pressed a stamp into it to create this beautiful artistic heart.

Then using one of my favorite sentiment stamps, Dare to be Different, I added the image using Distress Ink and when it was almost dry, sprinkled with embossing powder so that only some of the sentiment would be embossed. Here is the final project for you.

I love the simplicity of this card, yet it still packs an artistic punch. The ribbon is adhered using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive as are the roses and the heart. The rest of the card uses Helmar Premium Craft Glue, perfect for all your paper to paper crafting and so much more.

There are so many amazing phrases and sentiments in the I Brake for Stamps shop. Something for every single project I'm certain. So take a moment today and dare to be different.
