For the first day of the reveals we are featuring the Heartfelt Love & Heartfelt Love Stamp sets, along with the Heart Frames die that also coordinates with the previously released Banner Trio die set.
To make my first card, I started by using the Heart Frames die set to die-cut the scallop heart with some Neenah solar white card stock. I stamped the image on this piece with some Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I also used the biggest die to die-cut some red card stock.
Next, I used the third stitched die from the set, and die-cut the scallop panel that I previously colored. I adhered the outer layer on the red card stock with liquid glue, then foam-mounted the middle piece for added dimension. This gave it some nice layers without overwhelming the whole design.
I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Versamark ink on the sentiment strip that I die-cut using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set, and adhered with my tape runner in the middle of the card.
The second card is relatively simple but I really LOVE how this one turned out.
I die-cut the scallop frame on some Bristol Smooth white card stock using the scallop doe from the Frames & Flags die set. I positioned this panel inside my Misti stamping tool and stamped the images twice with some Versafine Onyx black ink. I colored the images in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I forgot how much I love these markers!
I die-cut the arrows using a retired die-set called Points & Plumes and adhered onto the panel with liquid glue for added texture. I stamped the sentiment on a die-cut strip from the Banner Trio die set, with some Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, before heat-setting with my heating tool. I foam-mounted this piece onto the card.
Lastly, I finished my design by adding some clear mirror confetti dots for added texture. Here’s another look:
