Drama Queen with Heidi Swapp Products

Hi everyone! Happy belated Canada Day to my fellow Canucks -- and of course, Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

Today, I'm sharing a project that I did with Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic line. This photo of my youngest daughter peering over her oversized sunglasses fit perfectly with this paper line, and the annoyed look on her face just screams "DRAMA QUEEN!!!".

I created the 3D hearts with hot pink Bazzill cardstock and a Heidi Swapp digital printable. I used my Silhouette Cameo's print and cut feature for this. You could do the same thing by cutting hearts out of Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic Drama or Fabulous papers. You could also freehand cut the hearts, cut them with a Cricut, use a paper punch or trace an existing heart to create the same effect.

I edged the hearts with a black marker to make them stand out even more. I applied Versamark ink on top of the entire zebra print heart, added sparkly clear embossing powder over top and heat embossed them. This gave the hearts a finished 'sticker-like' look. Lastly, I layered the hearts on top of one another and machine stitched through the center and added Helmar Scrapdots in between the layers to create the 3D look.

I used Heidi Swapp's Color Magic alphabet stickers for the second part of my title. I coloured them with a Faber-Castell Gelato. So easy and fun!

Thanks for dropping by today!
