Hey peeps. I’m back today to share more inspiration using the MFT January 2019 release. I have two cards to share with you. There is so much love going on in this release and I’m smitten with it. So let’s get right into the cards.
For my first card I used the Lots of Hearts and Lots of Hearts Outlines die cuts along with the gorgeous new Sweet Stack 6×6 paper pad. These two dies work seamlessly together however you can use them separately and create some amazing cards. To pull this card together, I adhered some of the pretty paper from the Sweet Stack to pink and red fun foam. Next I die cut out a few of the solid hearts and three of the heart outlines. I die cut out the heart outlines in sparkly silver glitter paper as I thought it would look nice framing out a few of the red hearts.
For my sentiment I used the the Happy Valentine’s Day from the Sassy Pants Love stamp set. I stamped it on black card stock in versa mark and heat embossed it in silver embossing powder. I cut them into a thin stripe to add it to my smooth white card base. I arranged several of the hearts along the bottom of my card and added a few sparkling black gems to fill in some of the areas between the hearts.
For my second card I used the Lots of Hearts stencil and the absolutely adorable Cutieasaurs stamp set. OMG this stamp set is just precious and it goes amazingly well with the hearts stencil. I first stenciled my hearts in Abandoned Coral distress ink keeping the outer edges lighter than the center. Next I used two dies from the Stitched Rectangle Stax 2 dies to add a stitched border and a piece I could pop up in the center. Die cutting the center on an angle gave the panel some interest. I added some clear Wink Of Stella to a few of the hearts for some sparkle.
I set this aside and stamped out the cute dinosaur and some grass pieces on Copic Xpress paper in black ink. I colored each of the images in Copic markers and added some Wink of Stella to the hearts on the dinosaur. I die cut out each image with the coordinating Cutieasaurs die-namics. To add my sentiment I used the You Make My Heart Saur sentiment from the Cutieasaurs stamp set, stamped it on black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Assembling my card I adhered the outline of the popped up piece to a card base. I used foam tape to pop up the center of this card panel and also popped up the dinosaur, grass and sentiment. To finish off the card I added a few sparkling sequins.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more card inspiration. Have a great day.
