Hearts to You

Here's a Valentine card I created for my stamping sister, Marie.

I die cut a heart with a Spellbinder's die from double sided sticky paper.  I then added red micro beads from Martha Stewart along with red glitter.  The same die was used to cut a heart from white card stock and the embellished heart was mounted behind the die cut opening.  I die cut a scalloped heart to mount on the top.  Have a great Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

This Valentine's card was created for friend, Karen, and I created similar Valentine's cards for my other stamping sisters - Barbara and Phyllis.

This card was created using red iridescent Shimmer Sheetz.  The Shimmer Sheetz was embossed with a 3D Embossability folder from Spellbinders.  I then lightly sanded the raised portions and swiped with black Staz-On ink.  The die is from Spellbinders Fancy Labels 2 set.  I also added some little red crystal hearts.  Have a great Valentine's Day!

My friends and I attended a class at Stamp This...Scrap That in Minoqua, WI and we created a similar card using a die cut filigree heart.  I saw this Impression Obsession  intricate die (DIE093-X) at this store and it was a must-have.  

I have never worked with such a detailed die before but this was amazing.  Many different ways to use this die for sure.  I cut an A2 sized panel and die cut somewhat off the paper as shown.  Behind the panel, mount decorative paper or create your own background.  Then replace the die cut and adhere onto the negative space.  This die had an outer area that it cut which I removed.  Hard to explain but if you have, or purchase this die, you will see what I mean. I then embossed the panel with a snowflake embossing folder and mounted onto light gray card stock.  Added a snowflake brad to complete the card.
