(2019 c16) Falling Hearts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For today’s heart insert I sandwiched the t issue  paper that was colored with Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder) inside a piece of 3M Transparency Film .  Before embossing the background, (in order to prevent smashing the deep embossing)  I cut one edge with an old Spellbinders Edgeabilities Dies, Classic Edges 1 (it is no longer available, but you can click the previous link to see what they looked like) Background created on white cardstock with Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder  and then applied (direct to raised parts with ink pad) Candied Apple Distress Inks by Ranger .  The heart was cut out with TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e .  The left portion of card was too stark white so I cut out tiny hearts from the same sandwiched tissue paper with Hero Arts Valentine and three Hearts fancy dies  for the falling hearts & the word Valentine was cut with same  set. Wishes was cut with Hero Arts DC239 Wishes Stamp & Cut .

To see how it was constructed see this previous post (2019 c13) Coffee Filter ValentineI used JudiKins Diamond Glaze to adhere the tissue to the transparency film instead of the Plaid product today. The inside sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. Love is a Magical Thing {Nov 2015 Sentiment Kit}.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(2019 c15) Red, Pink & White Valentine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Background created on white cardstock with Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder .  I highlighted with Barn Door Distress Inks by Ranger .  The hearts were cut out with TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e .  The largest was colored with Barn Door, Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger.  Then sprayed with Silver Glitter Dust by Thermoweb.   The pink portions were created using Ranger Alcohol Inks  on the back of previously used PHOTO PAPER.  The lowest, smallest heart was created like the first largest heart with Distress Oxide Ink but instead of spraying with glitter, it was inked with Versamark Ink  & heat embossed with Clear Ranger Embossing Powder  3 times.   The sentiment is from HERO ARTS Love Stamp and Cut DC175.

(2019 c13) Coffee Filter Valentine

Yes the heart is a COFFEE FILTER that was colored with Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder)  As you can see in the picture below first I cut out the hearts (one on edge of card base and another on edge of top white panel that is then embossed with Tim Holtz Sizzix Kaleidoscope 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder 663296  ) by cutting with the Hearts Template (an old template that had about 7 sizes of hearts) FISKARS Shape Xpress Cutting System

As you can see in the photos below, I sandwiched the colored coffee filter inside a piece of 3MTransparency Film .   This was taped with very strong Score Tape on the back side of the 3D Embossed top panel and then taped on top of the front of the card base.

(2019 c11) Stenciled Background, Alcohol Ink LOVE

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The background was made by sponging Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger through a generic heart stencil. First layer was very a light coat Barn Door ,   then I repositioned to offset and slightly overlap the hearts and sponged with Candied Apple with a heavier hand. When dried thouroughly,  I randomly applied  953n Moonstone Nuvo Glitter Paste through a few hearts of the stencil.  The outside edges of the front of the white card base were  swiped heavily with Candied Apple and then I spackeld with 953n Moonstone Nuvo Glitter Paste.  

The frame and LOVE letters are the left overs when I cut out my central image a few days ago for (1019 c9) Alcohol Ink LOVE .  Here’s how I made them:  LOVE was cut at a diagonal on a piece of new HP Photo Paper that I used to “Mop-Up” Alcohol inks that were left on my glass mat after lightly spritzing with 91% Rubbing Alcohol and it was cut out with MY FAVORITE THINGS Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX .  I cut out with Stampin Up Large Letters Framlits Dies 14172.   (I just love 2 for one elements!!!)

I followed Jennifer McGuire’s UTUBE video “Hinged Diecut Greetings” showing how to create the clear hinges for folding elements, even shaped elements!   I will just post progress photos after the background pictures.

Products Used:   TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e ;   HERO ARTS Love Stamp and Cut DC175 (Gold LOVE die cut and LOVE & Happy Vallentine Day sentiments on the inside);  Spellbinders Media MiXage One Heart and  Hero Arts Valentine and three Hearts fancy dies ; Gold Ranger Embossing Powder ;  Versamark Ink;   Ranger Embossing Powder
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI started by cutting watercolor paper with multiple hearts with Spellbinders Media MiXage One Heartand  Hero Arts Valentine and three Hearts fancy dies . Next I spritzed Deco Art Media Mist Magenta over another watercolor paper (The top mask was used for a project seen HERE and I’m so glad I finally found a project for the lower background paper!)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(2019 c9) Alcohol Ink LOVE

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here I go again putting   Ranger Alcohol Inks  on Previously used PHOTO PAPER.  See the photo below the folded back scrap from the bigger red paper shows that the opposite side had previously been printed on with a ink jet printer. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LOVE was cut at a diagonal on a piece of new HP Photo Paper that I used to “Mop-Up” Alcohol inks that were left on my glass mat after lightly spritzing with 91% Rubbing Alcohol and it was cut out with MY FAVORITE THINGS Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX .  I cut out with Stampin Up Large Letters Framlits Dies 14172. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things: Geometric Greenery and was stamped on heart print Vellum using my  Misti Stamping Tool so that I could stamp dry gently with heat gun and then stamp again to prevent smudging since stamping on Vellum dries slowly.  The left side vellum panel was cut with  (it matched the placement of the hearts perfectly) the set: SPELLBINDERS Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Rectangles LG Etched Dies S4-133. (it matched the placement of the hearts perfectly)

(2019 c8) Heart Shaped Shaker Card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Heart shaped shaker card made with:  New  Die Set  TONIC STUDIOS Traditional Heart Die Set 1459e ;      (2019 c8) heart shaped shaker 2 blister_edited-1 HERO ARTS Love Stamp and Cut DC175 (Happy Vallentine Day sentiment on the inside);     LAWN FAWN Happy Happy Happy  (Wishing You A);     Ranger Alcohol Inks  to color the background;  Tulle with a silver swirl design for the shaker window.  The sentiments were ultimately  stamped with HERO ARTS Dye Ink Pad India Ink Black AF248   (As you can see on the photo above to the right, I had a big BOO BOO:  I first tried to stamp the sentiment and HEAT EMBOSS on the REPURPOSED HP Photo Paper (I had already printed a picture that I didn’t like on the front side so I applied the alcohol ink to the white back side)   that I had applied  Ranger Alcohol Inks  to.  I was quickly reminded that you just can’t apply too much heat to these papers of else they will crack and bubble!  (2019 c8) heart shaped shaker 3

So now I had to restamp the sentiment and since I didn’t have a big enough piece of the same photo paper I cut a smaller heart and inserted it into yet another lighter/smoother blended alcohol inked photo paper for the frame to cover the first BOO BOO.  You e can see on the picture above How I created the 2 clear hinges (cut from re-purposed plastic packaging) I covered the  entire heart with strong Score Tape and covered up the BOO BOO.   Jennifer McGuire’s UTUBE video “Hinged Diecut Greetings” shows how to create the clear hinges for folding elements, even shaped elements!

Here is a photo on the left above of the card base plus the fix for the BOO BOO and the top of the shaker heart that will cover the top SHAKER element.  The photo on the right above is the inside with the hinged shaker flipped up.
