Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I’m sharing a card that I created using the stamp set Gallery Grunge. I’m excited that this stamp set can be used in other ways than just a filler or to make a collage.
I recorded a video to show you exactly what I did. Kick back and enjoy and please let me know what you think.

Hello and happy Friday!
Yesterday’s open house was a GREAT TIME! So many came and seemed to enjoy themselves. We enjoyed ourselves so much that I closed a little late. Some times time just flies by and suddenly you look up at the clock and ooops, it’s time to go. Well, that is what happened last night, but it was worth every minute.
My customers LOVE LOVE LOVED the make and take. I taught each one how to make this cute heart favor. However, I didn’t give out written measurements just because I promised I would give instructions today on this post. So here we go.
- You will need a piece of designer series paper cut at 3-15/16 (which is one line under 4″ on your trimmer) X 5-14/16 (which is two lines under 6′ on your trimmer)
Now for the scoring.
With your dsp laying on your paper trimmer portrait style place the left end of the dsp on the 3-1/2 mark and score lightly.
Next, slide the end of the dsp to the 1-3/4 mark and lightly score
Now holding your dsp portrait style simply fold it in half.
Burnish all of your score lines and then open it up flat. Next, you will fold over the smallest scoreline
The next step is to add Multipurpose glue to that thin tab. Once you have the glue on the tab, fold the dsp closed at the center score line.
You are ready to create the rounded heart humps. Using a 1-3/4” circle punch or die cut out a circle. Place that circle on one end of your dsp tube and draw a half circle. Do that to both ends.
After drawing the half circles cut them out using your snips.
Your tube will now look like the image below
Turn your tube so that you are looking at the glued seam and press in lightly. The center score line will give in and the two ends will fold up towards each other to make your heart shape.
Your heart shape should be formed like in the picture below. Gently pinch the bottom.
Our next task is to make the heart stand up on its own.
Choose a front and back to your heart. Working with the back of the heart pinch the bottom and fold the tip back towards the seam on the side. Once you have folded it back pinch the score light tightly. Then fold it to the other side and pinch the scoreline tightly again.
Open your heart back up and you will notice a V shape at the bottom. Push in on the center score line and the two other score lines will go in also.
In the picture below I’m showing you where to place the tear and tape. Burnish the tape well and pull off the tapes protective paper. Gently push the heart pieces together.
Place your heart on your table leaning it on the back V that you made and it will stand on its own. If it does not stand, just keep gently pressing on it until it molds and stands alone.
Embellish as desired. I use the stitched Shapes and the Layering Circle Dies for the white and the Rococo Rose circles. The ribbon is the 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Rococo Rose Linen Ribbon. The sentiment is from the stamp set Country Home. Lastly, I cut a little flower from a scrap of dsp and layered that onto the white circle.
I know these instructions seem lengthy but the project is really pretty easy. If you need my help, let me know.
