Sending Love and Hugs...Heart Flower

I know I've seen flowers made of hearts around from time to time...I just had to make one...
Made a flower, layered a die cut sentiment, stamped on vellum, and die cut a stem and leaves.  Popped up the polka dotted panel on gray card...Fun!!  Thanks for visiting me today, hope you have a great day!! Hugs!! Lisa

Floral Flaps Valentine

I had gotten the pretty Papertrey Ink Floral Flaps dies over a month ago, and am finally getting around to putting them on a card.  I used two flaps, layered three times and filled with color...
This card is a 4 1/4" square card.  I have taken some pics to show you how I did this...
 Three flaps each for layering, trimmed, making sure the bottom two are trimmed a bit more than the top one, so you don't see the bottom layers.

 Adhere together

 Die cut the three colors for filling in

 to make it easy to poke the pieces through to the white, poke out two of the unneeded pieces to be able to line up the colored with the white.

 After putting all the colored pieces in, turn over.

 I used 1/16" pop up squares and attached to the back of wherever there was a colored piece.

 This is what it will look like when you turn it right side up

Attach to die cut 4" square panel

This is what it will look like when right side up...then stamp the sentiment and attach to card.  I stamped the sentiment on separate piece of paper, and lined it up to the colored flaps panel, THEN attached the WHOLE thing to the card.  Hope this all makes sense:)!! This design could suit any right fitting sentiment...
(I added this pic after I had made this post, just to show you another option:)!)

Floral Lace Heart Valentine

Did you ever have a bunch of die cuts or stamped sentiments on your desk that didn't "work" when you were making a card...and you just can't bear to throw them away???  Take heart (get it??!!)...my card is full of lots of those...
I die cut a few of the magenta hearts for a card...didn't use them.  I die cut two of the floral lace hearts for another card...didn't use them.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum for yet another card...didn't use it.  I decided to put them all together with another 3 floral lace heart die cuts in light pink, yellow and blue (MAKE SURE YOU USE AN ADAPTOR PLATE for all the die's fine details), filled the white heart with color, attached to the magenta hearts and put on framed 5 x 5 card...I SO LOVE when this happens!!!!  Here's a close up...

CAS(E) this Sketch...Happy Valentine's Day

I've made a card for CAS(E) this Sketch #107...had to go Valentine's Day...here's my card and the sketch...
 This sketch is really cool..the 3 elements on and coming off the panel...well...love it:)!!
 I layered my hearts and popped up the flowered panel on the white card.  I used my Lawn Fawn heart dies of which there are 6 and they are nesting hearts...all the same design but different sizes...perfect for die cutting, then placing a smaller die inside.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink (LOVE their little sets with different fonts of the same sentiments!!).  The flower paper is by American Craft from AC Moores.  Here's a close up...

Heart Balloons...Love

I had been wanting to do something with the new balloon dies from Simon Says Stamp...finally have!  In that set of balloon dies, is a small heart balloon die...I thought it was SO CUTE...
I die cut and layered the glittered red paper( from Michael's) heart balloons, put a piece of fine silver thread in between the 2nd and 3rd layers and layered the "love" die a couple times with a shiny silver metallic paper from Hobby Lobby.  Close up...
Super simple, SUPER Fun!!  Ok...until tomorrow:)!!  Hugs!!  Lisa
