Yet more hearts

It's Valentine's week so I suppose I'd better make a few romantic  looking cards!


First of all, here are the cards I've made for the latest Twofer challenge.


The stamp I've used is an unmounted one that came in a RAK many years ago.  It says "Third Coast" on the back so I presume that's the manufacturer. For the first card, I used Versamark ink and clear embossing powder to stamp it randomly over the pink card and heat emboss it, then added a sentiment stamped on vellum and held in place with glue dots behind the heart shaped pearls.

For the second I heat embossed in black on red then attached it to a panel of Bazzill embossed card. The finishing touches are some ribbon from an NBUS reel (odd how the stuff with hearts on tends not to get used in this house!) and a peel-off sentiment from La Pashe. 

Now a closer look at the cards on their own


I'm sharing this one with

Sweet Stampin - Girly 


And I'm sharing this with

  3. Those sketchy floral stamps are all the rage right now so this old stamp is new again, Jane! I love that you stamped with Versamark and clear-embossed the hearts to make your background. That was one of the first techniques I remember doing - just stamping an image using nothing but the Versamark ink, without the embossing. Thank you for reminding me how much I love that look! And your anniversary card is so awesome, I don't know where to start! I love the texture of the card base, then the texture of the embossed swirls which mimic the swirls inside the heart, then the popped-up pretty heart, and finally, the heart-ribbon-borders of the sediment ... all of it makes for a really lovely design! Thank you for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! Hugs, Darnell
