Sealed With A Kiss

Happy Hump Day! One week today I'll be getting ready to move! Hard to believe that day is almost here. I should probably finish packing, too, but first I want to share with you the card I made for this week's Anything Goes challenge at Whimsical Designs!

I know it's not anywhere near Valentine's Day, but I saw the "Sealed with a Kiss" sentiment from Whimsical's "With Love" stamp set and couldn't resist! Even if the card is a bit lovey-dovey. :)

The hearts under the sentiment are from a sample stamp set I won from Sweet Stamp Shop! They were just what I needed when finishing off this card.

Any guesses as to what the lips are made of?! If you guessed Liquid Pearls, you're correct! Wondering how I did it? I'm feeling pretty generous today so I'll share my secret. :) When I thought of the idea for the card I went searching the Silhouette store for a lip die cut I liked, and came across a rhinestone template instead. I didn't have the right size rhinestones (nor enough of them) to make three lip patterns, and that's when I thought of Liquid Pearls! I bought the rhinestone pattern, opened it up in Silhouette Studio, and changed the dot pattern from black to a very, very light gray so I could still see the pattern, but it would still be faint enough in case I didn't cover a dot exactly. 

Our sponsor this week is Miriam's Crafting Supplies, and a winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to her fabulous embellishment shop!

Hope to see you playing along! :) Have a fabulous rest of your week.
