Happy Friday everyone!!! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today celebrating release day!!! Today I have a bundle of cards for you featuring the new heart burst cover plate and images from lots of the new stamp sets too!
The night that I got my release package I started cutting this cover plate out of every color of cardstock I could get my hands on. I had so many ideas and it was so much fun! So today I’ve narrowed it down to 4 cards to share with you. Let’s dive in!
First I cut the background from white, black and red cardstocks. I glued the black frame to a card base and inlayed the white and red bursts with EZ squeeze liquid glue. Then I popped the heart up with foam tape. For the second card, I adhered the red frame to a card base and inlayed the red bursts while popping the white ones up with foam tape, along with the heart as well.
Then for this card, I stamped and colored images from Stinkin’ Sweet with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and added them with a combination of foam squares and EZ Squeeze liquid glue. I stamped a sentiment from the set and cut it out with a large sentiment strip die and tucked it underneath the images to ground my mini scene.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the skunk’s eyes and nose, the flower centers and parts of the butterfly. Then I glued a scattering of pearls from Essential Pearls pack across the whole design.
Isn’t it so bold and still adorable?!? I love it! Now for the second card…
I place my card in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Prickly Hugs on the heart. Then I stamped an image from the same set and colored it with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and added foam adhesive to the back. After removing the release paper, I popped it in place, tucking it right around the sentiment perfectly.
For finishing touches on this fun card, I added some white gel pen highlights and glossy accents to the balloon. Then I just had to add unicorn Stickles to the cacti cheeks. Last I glued a scattering of Unicorn Pearls across the design.
Now, I have a pair of quick and easy but absolutely adorable Valentine cards that you could mass product if you needed.
I cut the heart burst frame from melon and pink cardstocks and still had my white frame from the cards above. For the card on the left I glued the frame and bursts directly to the card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue. Then, before popping up my heart, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the new My Heart Smile set. Once that was finished I added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the hearts in the sentiment and glued a scattering of Pastel Pearls across the design.
For the card on the right, I doubled up the frame gluing the light pink one beneath the melon one for a little dimension. Then I inlayed the bursts and popped up the heart with foam squares again. This time for the sentiment, I stamped and heat embossed it on vellum and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I used R35 and R39 copic markers to color the back size of the vellum for a little interest before using tape runner to adhere it down. I finished this card off with a scattering of the same pearls. Voila!
Aren’t all of these cards just too much fun!!! I can’t wait to play more! I hope you enjoyed today’s projects and have fun shopping the new release!
