This is an amazing idea!


Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I love Kerri’s subway art cut files and wanted to use one to create a decorated frame for Valentine’s Day but I wanted to be able to customize each of the words or phrases on the die cut with a background stamp and colorful ink pads for a fun, “conversation heart” rainbow of colors. To achieve the look, I die cut the subway art file from smooth white cardstock. Then, before removing it from the cutting mat, I masked off the parts of the image I didn’t want to ink and stamped each word/phrase with a different color of Hero Arts Mid-Tone Ink for a customized colorful die cut title! By using the same background stamp throughout the design and only changing the color of the ink, it kept the title from being overly busy or hard to read and instead just added color!

To finish the design I used a manual die cutting machine to die cut an exclusive Simon Says Stamp heart design and stamped each with coordinating heart stamps.
