Hearts of Red, White & Pink

Fringed Tissue Paper Heart

I LOVE tis­sue paper and cre­at­ing tis­sue paper gar­land is one of my favorite things to do. Tis­sue paper is cheap and the gar­land is sim­ple to make. You can make your gar­land as long as you wish or just a small amount that is per­fect to accent a card as I did in the pho­to above. The cen­ter of the tis­sue paper heart is a cal­en­dar card by Jen­ni Bowl­in. I accent­ed the cen­ter of the cal­en­dar using brown ink and crack­le paint.

Embossed Heart

Cre­at­ing tex­ture and dimen­sion is some­thing else I love doing. Pret­ty much all my projects have some kind of tex­ture and dimen­sion. This embossed heart is an accent on a tag. The heart is embossed, paint­ed and glit­tered and sur­pris­ing­ly does not take much time at all to cre­ate. The doily behind the heart is col­ored using per­fect pearls. This is one prod­uct I like using because you can apply a small amount of per­fect pearls for a sub­tle touch of col­or or sev­er­al coats on top of each oth­er to achieve a dark­er more intense shade.

The instruc­tions to make the tis­sue paper gar­land and embossed heart can be found in my book “Delight In The Sea­sons.” You can pur­chase an auto­graphed copy HERE or a copy on Ama­zon HERE.
