Valentine Love

I am not a hearts and pink kinda gal but when there was a suggestion of doing a Valentine's blog hop, this idea jumped in my head and I couldn't get it out until I started working on it. It is made to hang on the wall and it could be left up year around!

I had to do some shopping, of course, my favorite thing, shopping for art supplies to create projects and there was a buzz in several of my FB groups about a great sale at a local store. So I decided to go and made a great haul on lots of items, although I have to say I was just looking for a paper mache heart and some $60 later...just don't tell my hubby!

There is also a product giveaway of approximately $25. Leave a comment and you will be in the drawing.

Supplies used -
Blank Page Muse stamps - Script, vintage old key, and lips
6" x 6" x 2" canvas
Lid from a paper mache heart box
Paint in various pink colors
White card stock
Distress Ink in Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Candied Apple
love die cut word
Miscellaneous plant and flower die cuts
Gold watercolor paint
Gem embellishments
Connect glue

To start off the project, I painted the heart box top and the canvas a light pink then used the Blank Page Muse script stamp on the front and sides of the canvas along with the key and lips in various shades of Distress Ink.

I then set this aside to dry and cut out several flowers and plan leaves for use on the background. I painted the papers with the smooshing ink method and when dry cut out the die cuts. I then set these aside.

I cut out 4 of the love words, stacking and gluing them for dimension. Set aside to dry.

Then I decided that the back of the heart top would need something to use to glue down onto the canvas so I drew around the lid and cut out a heart on white cardstock then cut flaps all around the heart and bent them in. I then used a paper towel to fill the heart and insert the cardstock backing and glued it in place.

To assemble the piece I started adding in the die cut plants and flowers around the canvas and then started to glue them in place. I then used the gold watercolor and splattered the whole canvas, then glued down the heart top and added the LOVE word to the front.

Valentine's day card - Happy Love Day

Wanted to create a fun Valentine's Day Card and I thought I had quite a few hearty items, let's just say I will need to do some shopping!

I used just a few items to create this card and I love the way it turned out!

Supplies -
Unity Stamp sentiment - Happy Love Day and small You Heart
Heart die
Distress Ink in Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral
Canson Watercolor paper
5" x 7" card and envelope
Washi tape
Foam squares
Ranger gold embossing powder
Heat tool

I started out by smooshing the Distress inks on my non-stick mat and smooshing the watercolor paper into the inks. I dried it the first time with my heat tool then did a second smooshing and let it dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

I then took the Distress inks and run a line of ink down the center of the card with all three colors then using the ink left over from the smooshing, I splattered ink all over the card front.

I then added corresponding colored washi tape to the bottom of the card.

I then used the heart die and cut out a heart from the watercolor paper and heat embossed it in gold.

I cut out the small hearts from white cardstock and more of the watercolor paper and stamped the You Heart inside the white heart in picked raspberry ink.

to assemble the card, I added one layer of foam tape the large heart and centered it over the inked stripe then add two layers of foam tape to the small hearts and positioned them on each side of the large heart.
