showering love - sequin hearts & stripes

Today I have another super easy idea for lovey cards with sequin hearts that look much more complicated than they are!
Stamp panels with stripes like the My Favorite Things Watercolor Stripes background or the 3 stripe band from my new fav, Concord & 9th Love Always.

Die cut hearts from the stamped panels.

Then create the little sequined pieces to fill the negative space of the heart die cuts. This is much easier than it looks! Cut a piece of strong double sided adhesive bigger than the heart. Remove part of the adhesive liner and apply sequin trim (sequins pre-stitched together). Continue to remove the adhesive liner paper and apply the sequin trim until the piece is covered.

The iridescent sequin trim is available at Ellen Hutson LLC and the black is from my stash, left over from my wedding. Head over to my Instagram account for a chance to win some black trim happy mail.

Finish the panels with black ink splatter and sentiments before adhering to card. So easy right?!

I'm off to CHA but I'll be posting the fun on my Instagram account so make sure to pop over and check it out.
