XOXO Runway Style

Hello there!

There is something exciting about stamp building, and I can't quite describe it.  Solid image meets cardstock, enter stamp positioner, and lay down the outline.  Viola!  A lovely two toned masterpiece.  Love it.  I know, I am silly...but I get a little excited about stuff like that.  I used the latest Runway Inspired Challenge for my inspiration, you can check it out here.

All of that black and white, angles and XOXO, had me going in a clean and simple direction.  I stamped my XOXO from Studio Calico's May card kit in Lady Bug red and overstamped the shadow in black.  I then took some hearts from the Darling Sentiments set and stamped those, adding tiny rhinestones for a bit of glam.

I ran a strip of white cardstock through the Big Shot with my Linear Embossing Folder from Lifestyle Crafts (NOTETOSELF at checkout will get you 20% off) and adhered a bit of black cardstock to its side.  I then popped it up with foam and rounded the bottom right corner.  Tada!

Here is a look at the inspirational photo:
