I Love Love love the new range of DCWV DIY Project Stacks, there are 'Flowers, Paper Roses, Mini Albums, Favor Boxes, Cone Wreaths, Seasonal Wreaths, Birds & Butterflies and of course Stencils.  Over on the DCWV Blog Tessa has made video reveals of all these project stacks, have a look here.

For my projects I have used the 'Stencils' DIY Project Stack along with my Xyron Adhesive Products to create a 3d 'Heart' wall hanging and a card.  The cut file is Design ID #60252 by Marji Roy for Ashbee Designs and is available from the Silhouette Studio Design Library. 

Below is my project and a quick tutorial.

I Heart You


White Cardstock

How It's Made

Cut out the various elements in the cutting file using the papers from the DIY Stencils Stack for the front and interior base of the frame.  The hearts are cut from the white card stock.

Take the heart (piece number 2) and using the round dots frame stencil and the eBrush add random half circle details to the paper.

On the front of the frame (Piece 1) using the dotty frame stencil add details to the top left and bottom right of the frame.

To assemble the frame and heart corners use the Xyron Mega Runner to apply adhesive to the tabs.

To add dimension between the heart pieces use thick foam pads, these pads came with the Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit.

Before adding the next heart layer on top of the base heart put pieces of the Xyron High Tack Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the sides. 

Lower the remaining heart layers into the first heart, pull off the tape's protective paper.

Press the sides firmly in place to ensure adhesion.

Turn over the hearts and this is how this part should look.

Place the assembled hearts into the base of the frame, apply tape along the inside edge of the frame front.

For stability apply foam pads to the corners of the hearts.

Add the front of the frame to finish.

This card was made using the criss cross frame stencil, the scalloped top tag  and the I heart you stencils and the eBrush.

The finished frame.
