Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have another Valentine’s Day Card made with the cute Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt bundle and the From My Heart specialty designer series paper.
We have a sketch challenge this week and we’re still working to inspire you for Valentine’s Day, so here is the sketch we are using:
I started by punching two hearts from the From My Heart Specialty DSP. The first is the Flirty Flamingo and Real Red fancy foil heart using the regular heart punch and the second is the red foil scalloped heart using the scalloped heart punch. Both of these punches are included in the Heartfelt bundle and they fit perfectly together. I adhered the two foil hearts together with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered them to a Flirty Flamingo heart doily with dimensionals.
I cut two rectangles using other paper from the From My Heart Specialty DSP pack using the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered them together at an angle with multipurpose liquid glue. I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo Card Stock through the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and adhered it to a Flirty Flamingo card base. I adhered the From My Heart DSP panels to the center and then the layered hearts on top.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Heartfelt stamp set on a strip of Real Red card stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the long label from the Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered it to the card with dimensionals and multipurpose liquid glue. I finished the card front with 9 From My Heart faceted gems adhered to the heart DSP above the layered heart.
I stamped the heart with the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set on a panel of Whisper White using Flirty Flamingo ink. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the heart DSP and adhered it to a Real Red mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.
The From My Heart specialty designer series paper is so pretty – I have loved all the cards I have made with it. And I love the punch pack in the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt bundle, with the scalloped punch sized perfectly to match the regular punch.
