Daring Cardmakers and Clare's Weekly Challenge

This weekend I started working on some Valentine Cards. I was inspired by the DCM Challenge where they asked us to use a heart or hearts on the card and Clare Curd's decoupage challenge at Docrafts . I actually used four stamped and heat embossed heart. Although I am not the type who likes ornate stamps, I am quite pleased with the outcome of this card.
Blank Card
Red and Cream Cardstock
Papermania Ornate Heart PMA 10066
Papermania Ornate Flower PMA 10016
Heat it UP - Sea Foam White and Rainbow Sparkle
Ink it Up - White and Black Pigment Ink
Papermania - Love Collection Kit
Scalloped Scissors
How to:
  1. Cut a 14 by 14 red panel and and 13 by 13 patterned paper. Draw a red circle with a compass and cut using scalloped scissors.
  2. Stamp and heat emboss 4 black hearts on cream card stock.
  3. Stamp and emboss the white ornate flower. Cut a slightly larger red circle following the technique in step 1.
  4. Assemble everything using foam pads.

To top it all of I stamped this great "created by" stamp I got from ebay. It came all the way from Malaysia and I love it.
