Ok – a Valentines Tutorial…
I will list the products I have used at the end….
1. I took a piece of 12 x 12 Whisper White card stock and cut it to 6 x 12 then scored at the 6 inch mark folding it to make my card base.
3. Then using the Chalk Board cardstock I punched out 6 hearts – my punch is the old heart punch but there is a gorgeous new one which I will give you details of below. I also used some old DSP which has red glitter polka dots on.
4. The DSP hearts I folded in half but the Chalk Board ones are sturdier so I used my Scoreboard to score them down the middle before folding them and glueing them together with Tombow wet glue – this has to be the BEST wet glue on the market – you get a minute or so to maneuvre your card around into place before it grabs and holds firm! Once these were glued and folded I popped them under a punch while they dried.
5. Taking my Stamp a Majig, my photopolymer stampset Hello Life and Basic Black ink pad, I then stamped onto the polysheet, making sure to line my stampblock right into the corner of my Stamp a Majig. I then lined this up onto my card base.
6. I stamped the ‘Love’ and heart on a line from Hello Life and ‘You’ and ‘So Much’ from Crazy About You. I really love the photopolymer stamps, they are so easy to position and get just right. To get the red heart I inked up the whole image then carefully wiped away the Basic Black ink from the heart. I then used my Real Red Stampin’ Write marker to ‘ink’ up the heart just before stamping on my card.
Once this was all done, I assembled my card….I attached the embossed, Real Red strip with the hearts, glued on my 3d hearts and added a little sparkle to the tiny red heart. And here is the finished card…..
