Smooching Technique to Die For

     No, it has nothing to do with kissing :)


     This is a really super simple card.  Using the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, I cranked out several heart shapes with the Big Shot.  I placed the die cuts on top my Naturals White card base and placed it in my Color Catcher.  If you aren’t familiar with the Color Catcher, it’s a simple three sided cardboard box designed to contain Smooch Spritz or other sprayed mediums.  I thought I could just spray with a piece of paper behind my project to catch over-spray.  Well, my keyboard is now permanently spritzed with Silver Foil Smooch :)  Just sayin’…  Anyway, I sprayed the gorgeous new Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz on top the card, let it dry a few seconds and then removed the die cuts…exposing the white base beneath.  I then adhered my die cuts with Dimensionals to the base…off set from the exposed hearts.  It’s basically a masking technique.  Really cool effect.  And the shimmer is so pretty!  The ladies at my Stamp Clubs seemed to enjoy this quick project and it has that big WOW factor to it! :)  I left the sentiment for the inside but if you wanted to add one, I suggest using Jet Black StazOn or stamping it before spritzing.  The shimmery Smooch Spritz doesn’t let the other inks dry correctly.  How do I know?  Hmmm…

     I hope you’ve been inspired to “smooch” a little this Valentine season.  Thanks for stopping by today.
