I have four cards to share with you today. The first two using the beautiful Sewn With Love Stamp Set, but I have used the heart image to create some fun Valentine’s Cards:

For this first card I went a little dotty (excuse the pun) with the large heart die in the Sewn With Love Die Set. I cut this a number of times all over my card panel to create a fun hole punch background. The hearts were very easy to get straight as I just lined the faint border it left around the heart image.

To create a focal point I stamped one of the pin pricked hearts with the coordinating heart stamp using Ruby Red ink. I also used the same ink to ink up a small piece of cardstock, I then cut the small heart dies from New Day Card Kit from it. I added a little Wink Of Stella to the hearts and some Glossy Accents and left them to dry.

I stamped one of the sentiments from the same set onto a strip of black cardstock using embossing ink and heat set using white embossing powder. I added this into place using foam tape and added the tiny hearts once they were dry.

My second card has a little rainbow included:

I have to say these hearts are soooooo easy to line up! I started by stamping my first heart off the side of the panel using Ruby Red ink, I then flipped the heart upside down to stamp the next using Orange Cream. I repeated this process using Warm Sunshine, Parrot, Lagoon, Deep Iris and Pinkalicious until I had worked my way across the card panel.

Again I stamped a sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock using embossing ink and heat setting with white embossing powder. I added this across the rainbow hearts using foam tape. I just love the fun contrast this gives!

Next up I have another fun rainbow card using the awesome Crafty Life Stamp Set:

I started by creating a watercolor rainbow border on a strip of watercolour cardstock. I did this using watercolor markers adding a stripe of colour and then blending this out with water. I love the arty feel of this and it works so well with the fun sentiments in this set.

Once this piece was dry I adhered it to my card base and drew a black border down it using Jet Black Artist Marker, I just love the contrast it gives.

To finish I added one of the large sentiments from the set… I have to say this is one of my favourites from the set, I really like the boldness.

My last card is also the softest of the four and uses the beautiful Wings Of Hope set:

I started by stamping one of the large sentiments from the set into place on my card base. I did this so I could work around it and not worry later on where I was going to put it.

I then repeatedly stamped the small flower image and a leaf cluster all over the top of the card base leaving the part of the card under the sentiment free. I used Dew Drops ink for the flower and Minty Mint for the leaves.

    I am also loving the cross stitch stamp. Those hearts look like they were crossed stitched and I should know. I have been doing cross stitch and embroidery since Home Ec in high school. Each and every card looks great but I especially like the crossed stitched hearts. When I win, those are what I want to get along with a new cube of ink or 2. You can never have enough ink, right?
