Preparing for Happy Heart Day

Hello, everyone! We are drawing closer to the end of January and that means the next big card giving day is just around the corner!

Today I am featuring an image and sentiment from the Red Rubber Designs "I Heart You" stamp set. I love when I can stretch my stamping dollars and this set includes a variety of sentiments to fit several occasions, not just Valentines! Today I am featuring a Valentine and a Thank You note.

First up, a bright Valentine.

To create this fun look I sprinkled Brushos (Orange, Scarlet, Brilliant Red) on mixed media paper then spritzed with water. When the paper was dry I stamped the solid heart image from the I Heart You stamp set in Memento: Love Letter.  I then shaded the heart with Inktense pencils and water. The sentiment was stamped and then cut apart.

For my second card, I created a "thank you" note.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment with clear embossing powder. Next I sprinkled Brushos and spritzed with water and repeated this step several times to achieve a saturated look.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

Before you go here's a look at this fabulous set:

  4. Great cards, Angie. I like how you added a highlight to the heart on the top card. Really adds the dimension. The Thank You card is just so unique with the deep brusho back ground. I see you are getting a lot of use out of your Brusho product.
