Blended Hearts Valentine’s Card

Have you tried our new Blending Brushes yet? I love them, they are super soft and make making beautifully blended backgrounds much easier than using sponges as they leave no lines.

For this card I’ve used the Detailed Hearts Die as a stencil instead of a die. I first used the brushes to blend a layer of Flirty Flamingo all over the card. I then place over the die, held in palce with washi tape and used the brushes with Real Red, making the blending darker down the centre of the card. I love the effect this has created.

I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day from the Heart to Heart stamp set onto a label cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a little touch of the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the edge of the label and finished the card off with some of the little Real Red Resin hearts from the Snail Mail Suite.

Zany Zebras Mambo Birthday Card

Zebras have been one of my favourite animals for years so obviously as soon as I saw the new Zany Zebras stamp set then I was in love, these guys are so stinking cute!

For this card I’ve paired them with the bright patterns in the Artistry Blooms DSP, particularly this bright, fun Melon Mambo pattern.

The card base for this card measures 21.5cm x 20cm, scored in half at 10cm to create a DL sized card.

Zany Zebras Mambo Birthday Card - flat

The sentiment is stamped on a label cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies, a set full of versatile labels for any card project.

The two little Zebras were fussy cut from Whisper white cardstock and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Fussy cutting my not by your favourite thing but if you take it slow and move the paper more than the scissors you will get great results whi hare definitely worth it.
