Groovy Love Red and Black Instructions

Hi Stamping Friends!!!

You've seen both of today's cards on the blog before. But I wanted to share some detailed instructions with the gals that purchased the January Online Groovy Love Stamp Class. I'm sending the final five kits out today. Yay!!!

These two cards are the red and black cards in your kit.

Red and Black Card Number One:

Your kit includes:
1 Whisper White card base
1 Whisper White stamping sheet
1 Real Red card front
1 Basic Black card front embossed with the Happy Heart EF
1 - 16" piece of Silver Ribbon
Various pieces of Stacked with Love DSP punched with the Bow Builder punch.

Supplies needed:
Groovy Love stamp set
Sweetheart punch
Real Red ink
Glue Dots 

Stamp the polka dot heart using Real Red ink and punch out with the coordinating Sweetheart punch. Layer the Real Red card front onto the Whisper White card base. Next, adhere the Basic Black card front onto the Real Red front. Place your hearts on the card using Dimensionals. Assemble the bow. It is easiest to assemble using Glue Dots, but regular glue will work. It just might get a little messy. It is best to "curl" your rounded bow pieces first using your bone folder. This will keep them round and not crease. Make sure to pay attention to your DSP pattern. You don't want the pattern to be "upside-down". Attach completed bow to the center heart using Glue Dots. Tie your ribbon.

Red and Black Card Number Two:

You kit includes:
1 Whisper White card base with a 1" piece cut off the front
1 Whisper White stamping sheet
1 - 5 1/2" long strip of Stacked with Love DSP
1 Basic Black strip punch with the Heart Border punch
1 piece of "x's and o's" Stacked with Love DSP
1 piece of Real Red cotton ribbon
1 small Silver Glimmer heart

Supplies needed:
Real Red ink
Basic Black ink
Sweetheart punch

Stamp 3 "zebra" hearts using Basic Black ink. Stamp 2 "polka dot" hearts using Real Red ink. Punch out using the Sweetheart punch. Attach the long strip of Stacked with Love DSP to the inside of the Whisper White card base. Trim any excess paper. Arrange hearts on the cut edge of the card front. When adhering the hearts to the card front, be careful not to put adhesive on the entire back of the heart. You do not want to accidentally glue your card closed. :) Trim off any excess hearts that hang over the top or bottom. Adhere the "x's and o's" piece of paper, followed by the Basic Black heart strip, and finally the Real Red cotton ribbon. The ribbon is easiest to attach using Glue Dots. Stamp your sentiment in Basic Black ink, centered over the "x's and o's" DSP. Stamp the sentiment again on a piece of scrap Whisper White using Real Red ink. Cut out the word "love" and adhere on to your card front using a Dimensional. Attach the tiny Silver Glimmer heart.

Both of these cards are super simple and can be easily copied using other stamp sets, sentiments, and for other occasions. Get creative and have fun!!

Tomorrow I will be posting the instructions for the final two cards in this kit.

Thanks for stopping by!
Stamp something!!!!
