Stampin' Up! Wooden Hearts

Wooden Hearts


Hello crafters!










How is everyone today? Today I am bringing you a simple personalised gift idea. As always we are using SU products. I have also done a YouTube tutorial as well. 

You can do this with either SU classic ink pads which are water based or alcohol based inks. For a sealer when you are finished use something that won't react with water based inks and if you are using alcohol based inks mod podge works great as well. 

When I was cleaning out my craft room I found some wooden hearts I used to decorate and sell at craft fairs years and years ago. I decided to use them up with some SU products and made room in my craft room for some new SU stuff from the cattie that launched in June.

I used classic inks for my hearts in the video and I sprayed some hairspray on them to just hold the ink. Make sure you don't spray too close to the heart otherwise you will get some bleeding. The wood is untreated I use and has imperfections so I don't mind if my stamping isn't perfect. 

I bought mine with 2 holes in it to pop ribbon through so that they can get hung. Then I added some embellishments to make the images pop along with wink of stella clear pen. 

I used promarkers for the alcohol ones shown in the video. That was so I could seal them with mod podge and use them as coasters. SU do not have alcohol inks in a broad range of colours (they just have blacks and grey) so I used some contrabanned lol. 

You can use  whatever you like really. This idea is just to get you started in thinking about SU products as more than 'just' cards or 'just' scrapbooking.

This is what I have done with them. So here is my video tutorial - https://youtu.be/bSOiF6swNCo
