Introducing Skull and Cross Buns 'Brush Hearts'

Hi guys

Today I'm sharing some makes using a brand new stamp set recently launched by Skull and Cross Buns, just in time for Valentine's Day, Brush Hearts.

Here it is...

I had a little play with it last night and here are my makes...


I started with a panel of pale grey card stock slightly smaller than the card base and die cut a heart off the edge.  I lined up the panel on my card base and stamped the red heart through the aperture and heat embossed with clear powder (apologies, the photo doesn't pick this up).  I finished by stamping the sentiment in black and mounting the panel on fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Brush Hearts
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax
  • Ink: Versa Color - Camelia; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Clear Gloss
  • Grey cardstock from stash

Challenge entries:

Moving Along with the Times - Challenge #63 - CAS
Dream Valley - Challenge #171 - Love



Masking and stamping for my second card...



I die cut a heart from a piece of copier paper and secured it over a panel of white cardstock.  I gently blended some pink Distress Ink in from the edges of the heart and then stamped three different heart images from the set in three different colours.  The sentiment and lips were simply stamped before adhering the panel to the base on fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Brush Hearts
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry; Versa Color - Misty Mauve, Amethyst, Rose Red; Versafine - Onyx Black

Challenge entries:

Sweet Stampin' - Valentines/Love



I embossed the background with dies on my third card...



I started by embossing a red panel of cardstock with some stitched heart dies.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white.  The hearts were heat embossed in a pearl powder onto vellum which was wrapped around the panel, and adhered flat to the card base.  The embossing and pearlescent embossing can be seen more clearly below...


Materials used:
  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Brush Hearts
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White, White Pearl
  • Vellum and red cardstock from stash

Challenge entries:

Alphabet Challenge - 'V' for Vellum



Thanks so much for popping by.  Why not pop over to Skull and Cross Buns and get this fab set in time for some Valentine makes, and have a browse of the rest of the store too.  If you are someone who prefers rubber stamps to clear, there's a fantastic range of rubber stamps to chose from, and they are excellent quality, so why not treat yourself!


Hope to see you soon, enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)
