Magenta Super Saturday - Valentine Hearts


Welcome back to my blog.  It’s time to start making Valentine’s cards at my house and today I have a very quick an easy one.  

It features two of my favorite Magenta stamps, the Heart Tapestry and “Love Makes the World Go Round.”  You can also see my card on the Magenta blog here. 

I cut a piece of 110# white cardstock to measure 4” x 5 ½”.  I placed it in my MISTI, then positioned the heart stamp in the upper left corner of the cardstock.  I inked the stamp with two shades of VersaFine Claire pigment ink and stamped the image. 

I slid the cardstock up (without moving the stamp) about 2 1/8”.  I cleaned the stamp, reinked and stamped the second heart image.
I repeated the same process a third time, then embossed the images with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with clear embossing powder also. 

I had originally planned something more elaborate for this card like ink smooshing with Distress Inks or trimming the strip of hearts and matting it on a strip of gold cardstock and then onto another piece of cardstock with the sentiment stamped on it.  However, after I finished the embossing, I decided that I liked the simplicity of the card and decided to stop.  I matted the card onto a piece of So Silk Beauty Pink cardstock, then onto the front of an A2 card.  I added a few gems for a bit of sparkle.  

I may still try my other ideas for this design because I love both of the stamps.  I hope you will try them too.
