That's How Thursday & Hip Hop Day!!

Hi there ippity peeps!! It's Hip Hop Day and I sure hope you had lots of fun seeing all the fabulous Unity and ippity inspiration on today's Hop!!

For today's "That's How Thursday", I thought I would show you how quick and easy it is to make a  painted/embossed vintage heart that you can add to your card or project!!  Here's my finished card!  I thought this sweet little heart went perfectly with this NEW ippity "Quotes a'la Happy" sentiment (designed by Tanis Giesbrecht)!!

Supplies Used:

. ippity "Quotes a'la Happy" stamp sentiment. Cream Cardstock
. Cuttlebug Die and Embossing Folder - Textile Hearts
. Foam Paint Brush
. Paint - Rosy Posy
 . Ranger Distress Ink - Tea Dye
. Ranger Ink Blending Tool

Steps to make a "Painted/Embossed Vintage Heart":

Step 1. Using your die cut machine, cut the heart die cut.
Step 2. Using your heart embossing folder, run through the die cut machine to emboss the heart.
Step 3. Take your foam paint, and with the paint, slightly cover the embossed parts to the heart.  Add paint to the outer edge of the heart too.
Step 4. Take your sponge tool and distress ink and rub all over the heart.

Here's a close-up of the painted/embossed vintage heart that I made.  It's been backed up with Helmar 3D Zap Dots...and, it's been placed right in back of my sweet little ippity sentiment!!
