{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Piles Up Numbers

Hi, Cornelia here today and I'm piling up numbers!

My stamp supplies:


This is going to be a short tutorial. I stamped some numbers onto dark grey card stock with white Hero Arts ink - I mainly did that so I could see where the numbers are and then heat embossed them in white. I did not take a photo from the stamped numbers only, because I forgot to ink them up with Versamark first and then you don't have much time to heat emboss them, since that ink actually dries up quickly...

I masked the bottom 2 numbers and piled up more random numbers around them.

I then colored in the 37 and added the happy. Also heat embossed. Did not quite have the same hot pink, so this had to do. Also added some striped paper (the inside of an envelope that some organization sent me - too pretty to throw out...), a strip of Washi tape and 3 enamel arrows.

A tip: find your word stamp first and plan out the layout, that way you don't have to hunt around for a stamp that fits the space....guess how I know that?

Happy piling! See you in two weeks.
