Happy Saturday! Every Saturday throughout this month, I will be sharing projects using some brand-new and some well loved older products from Winne & Walter. We will play with various mediums so you can get more out of your W&W stash!

Multifaceted stamps and cutaways from W&W have always been my favorites. It can add so much texture and interest without using a lot of supplies. Today’s card uses the Multifaceted Heart Cutaways as a focal point, along with some sentiment stamps.

To create this focal point, I ran the die through the die cut machine using some white cardstocks. There are 2 die cut pieces, so you are going to layer the detailed cut piece on top of the solid piece to create a template.

I used a texture paste and a coral/pink ink pad to dress up the heart. Start with the white texture paste to go over the bottom portion of the heart with a craft knife. After that, mix the white texture paste with the coral ink pad to add some color! Simply run the colored paste over the top portion of the heart, that way you will get this ombre of coral/pink/white shade.

After adding the paste, carefully lift the detailed die cut piece from the heart and let the embossed piece dry for a couple of hours.

For the card background, I combined various stamps to create a gray shade gradient. The stamp sets I used are The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamp set, Sending You stamp set, and the Sentimential:Love stamp set. I started with a dark gray ink pad and went on to a light gray ink pad and stamped from the top to bottom of the card base.

As a finishing touch, I added a shimmer onto the heart so add some shine to the focal point.

There are various ways to add colors, and using a die with embossing paste and inks can be a fun way to bring both texture and color yo your projects!
