Today at The Cat’s Pajamas we’ve got a fabulous Valentine Heart CutAble Die that will make your little heart swoon. It’s called Lacey Heart and it really captures love and old-fashioned elegance.
Recently I saw a really awesome design by Debbie Hughes and wanted to use that as an inspiration to create this design, still making it my own. I love how it turned out because it’s so different. I used non-traditional colours and yet it still feels very romantic and lovey :).
I started by watercolouring the background in some limey-greens and turquoise loose wash, adding some flicked on dots of silver paint as it began to dry. Next I die cut the beautiful lacey heart. It’s just so lovely and intricate!
Then I chose another of our new dies, Always, a beautiful scripty font, and die cut it out 3x gluing the layers together and then once it was dry, daubering silver paint onto the letters to make them shimmer with silver. I layed that on a strip of vellum so that the heart is still visable but softened.
Sequins and rhinestones and a sweet little felt heart finish it off. I think I’ve used these new Nested Hearts CutAbles that we’ll be releasing on every project! I just love them.
