Hello everyone. Today I have a card using the Love Block stamp set from Spellbinders.

I cut the largest stamp in the set apart (don't worry it will always fit back together nicely) to be able to stamp the word love in a vertical line down the center of my card.
I cut a piece of white heavy weight cardstock to 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches. I then cut strips of a select color palette of cardstock to 3/4 inch strips and adhered them to the card panel with tape runner adhesive.
Once I had my card panel nicely adhered, I loaded it into my MISTI. I placed the "LOVE" letters from the Love Block stamp set into a vertical line in the center of my card panel. I stamped it with watermark ink and used fine detail white embossing powder to heat emboss it.
Because I used tape runner adhesive to stick down my paper strips, the heat from the heat tool started to lift the strips from the panel. Next time, I will be sure to use a stronger adhesive. To save the panel, I attached it to a piece of grey board to help give it some strength. Then I saturated the edges with the same sticky ink and embossed a white edge all around my card panel to give it a more rustic look. It wasn't the clean lines I was originally going for, but I really like how it turned out.
I added the panel to a white card base cut to 7 by 8 1/2 inches and scored at 3 1/2 inches.
I hope I've inspired you to create something today. To check out more by Spellbinders (CLICK HERE!)
