Lovely You Hearts for 3 Challenges

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's Valentines card is inspired by the Wear Red Day (which for me is Valentines day :) Inspo List over @ Festive Friday, the Theme Challenge over @ Global Design Project, all pulled together with Joanne's super Sketch Challenge over @ The Paper Players.  Please click the hyperlinks to visit the challenge blogs and enjoy the inspiration - then go make a card for your Valentine :)




***  The Trix  ***

*  Create a shiny, red, love filled sentiment - Do you know if you stamp with coloured ink on Vellum you can sprinkle on Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it for a shiny, red sentiment?  Yes, Cherry Cobbler and other ink colours, take awhile to dry on vellum - so splash on some embossing powder and make it shiny!

*  Hide the glue - Design the card first on vellum before adhering to the Basic White cardstock layer.  *Trix* cut the vellum a smidge smaller than the 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" Basic White layer, and heat emboss it.  Adhere the hearts, ribbon and rhinestones on the vellum.  Flip the vellum layer over, add glue where the hearts, ribbon & rhinestones are and then adhere to the Basic White layer.  

*  Find love sentiments in your existing stamp sets - The Lovely You Stamp Set, #152525 is not a Valentines stamp set, but I think the sentiment is perfect for Valentines.  

*  Repeat the colours - pick up the black from the Black & White 1/4" Gingham Ribbon, #156485 with a 3 7/16" x 4 9/16" layer of Basic Black cardstock to frame the Basic White and Vellum layer.  Adhere to the Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 " card base.  

*  The Cherry Cobbler hearts are from the Country Bouquet Punch, #160382.  The Rhinestone Basic Jewels, #144220 are coloured with a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Marker, #154880.

  2. I love this sentiment and it is perfect with your whimsical hearts. Your rhinestones are perfectly placed and the little touch of the black and white ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. So glad you shared this with us at the Paper Players and at FestiveFriday this week
