Valentine Hearts

In August I started going to a stamping group that meets once a month. We each make cards to exchange with each other and every month one person does a "hands on".  My first turn at doing the "hands on" was this month and of course was a Valentine's Day theme.  I took these 2 cards already made and then "kits" for them to make.  I gave them a choice of colors.

I purchased pre-made 5.5" x 5.5" cards in red and purple. Then for the purple card we added a 5.25 x 5.25" layer in a slightly darker purple. Then we took a 5 x 5" dark pink and punched it with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Heart punch and popped it up on the card.  The next layer is a light lavender and I used the Cuttlebug and had embossed it with the Conversation Hearts folder for them. It measures 4" x 4". Then we inked it to make the embossing stand out. The pink heart was from the Sweethearts cartridge on page 71 the shadow cut at 3.5".  I had them run the hearts thru the Zyron and the pink heart was sprinkled with Martha Stewart Tourmaline Tinsel Glitter then popped up on the card.  For the inside the "xoxo" was cut from the Paisley cartridge on page 57 the image and shadow cut at 1.25" and then popped up on a solid rectangle cut at 2" x 5".  And it looks tilted because it is on an Action Wobble and wiggles when you open the card.

For the red card, the measurements are the same, with black for the 5.25" layer, a dark red for the 5' inch layer and a medium pink for the 4" layer.  The heart for the dark red card is from the Paisley cartridge page 61 cut at 3". The dark red glitter is from Beacon.

Except for the pre-made base, all the paper used was by Core'dinations.

The ladies all said that they really enjoyed making the cards.  I hope so.  I sure enjoyed designing them.

Thanks for coming by and ya'll come back soon,

Cindy :)
