Happy Valentine's Day!
Today, I have another new Valentine's decor project on Kerri Bradford's Blog using a cut file to dress up a photo frame for my home.I love Kerri's subway art cut files and wanted to use one to create a decorated frame for Valentine's Day but I wanted to be able to customize each of the words or phrases on the die cut with a background stamp and colorful ink pads for a fun, "conversation heart" rainbow of colors.
To achieve the look, I die cut the subway art file from smooth white cardstock. Then, before removing it from the cutting mat, I masked off the parts of the image I didn't want to ink and stamped each word/phrase with a different color of Hero Arts Mid-Tone Ink for a customized colorful die cut title!
By using the same background stamp throughout the design and only changing the color of the ink, it kept the title from being overly busy or hard to read and instead just added color!
I used a flocked white on white paper from my scrapstash for the background inside the frame and cut the subway art from dark gray cardstock to use as a "shadow" for the stamped subway art title.
I added a stamped/die cut heart and some gems to the number "14" in the subway art to keep the entire design cohesive.
To finish the design I used a manual die cutting machine to die cut an exclusive Simon Says Stamp heart design and stamped each with coordinating heart stamps.
