FranticStamper - New Release Inspiration - Love & Music.

Hello Bloggers.

Its once again my turn to share a bit of inspiration for my guest DT,

Im using the November release called A life of Love and Music. Its a beautiful collection of dies and stamps. Visit the STORE to see the full collection.

For my 2 cards today, I have used the following:
Piano Keys Edger - FRA-DIE-10293
Musical Heart - FRA-DIE10354
Love and Kisses - FRA-DIE 10351
A Bit of Music - FRA-CLG-B033 (background stamp)

For this one I started with a black piece of cardstock. I die cut my Piano Keys die towards the bottom of the black cardstock. I then used the edge of the die and made a mask to cover the diecutting. By using the edge of the die I got a mask that matched the curved of the diecutting.

I then stamped my background stamp at the top of my black cardstock (I lay my mask over the diecutting) and heat set it with white embossing powder. I then die cut my Heart and my greeting from silver mirri card. I diecut 2 of each and stuck together to raise them up a bit from the card.

I then matted my black background on to silver mirri card, stuck my heart and greeting down and voila, all done.

Right for this one... I started with a black piece of cardstock as before and I diecut my piano just as before. The die dont seperate the bottom from the keys fully, so I just snipped that bit of. This left me with a piece fitting my cardblank BUT with the bottom bit missing.

I then took my cardblank. I needed the bottom bit removed to replace with accetate. I simply used the edge of the die itself to give me the right curve, drew a faint line with a pencil and cut by hand.
I then stuck a piece of accetate on the inside of my cardblank.

I then added my black piece of card on top of the cardblank and the white card shows through the holes where the keys are.
I diecut my greeting from glitter cardstock and added to the card and voila..

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
