Hearts, hearts and more hearts

Just to warn you, today's post is a little longer than usual with three new cards that I have made over the past few days.

A lot of challenges at the moment have the theme of Valentines Day, love, hearts etc, so all the recent cards I have made are of that theme.  I don't have a huge collection of love or heart type stamps, so I have mostly used my Hero Art Ribbon Heart stamp (C2041).

The first card is a rather simple design. 
This is for the Hero Arts January Challenge (Love & Hugs & Kisses)

3 Hearts
I stamped the cream background card with the Hero Arts envelope stamp. I gold embossed the three hearts with the Hero Arts ribbon heart stamp onto burgundy paper.  I gold embossed an extra heart, cut it out and mounted it on top of the middle one with dimensionals.  I framed the burgundy paper with cream card.  I gold embossed the sentiment and framed it in the same way.

Here is my second card.
It is for the following challenges:
Card Patterns #148
Die Cut Divas January Challenge Love
Penny Black and More January Challenge - Love and Hearts
Hero Arts January Challenge (Love & Hugs & Kisses)


I used heart patterned paper from cre8tiv and cut it into four panels.  I used my scallop punch to create the scalloped edge down the left side of the first panel.  I mounted the four panels onto red card.  I added the white ribbon.  I then used my spellbinders circles and scallop die cuts to make a red circle and white scalloped circle.  I white embossed the two hearts (HA ribbon heart) onto the red circle.  (I did many attempts of embossing this until I was reasonably happy with it, and also after trying two different sized circles – so lots of cut circles and embossing!)  The PP already had the white heart on it, so I cut out other from some of the leftovers and mounted that to the top edge of the circle. 

My third and final card.
This is for the following challenges
Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 184 - Anything Goes
Die Cut Divas January Challenge Love
Penny Black Anything Goes

I used some different heart patterned paper from cre8tiv and framed it with red card.  I used my spellbinders circles and scallops die cuts to make a red circle. I added a Penny Black stickeroo to the red circle and framed it with a white scalloped circle.  I white embossed the sentiment onto the PP.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my blog and cards.  Please let me know which one is your favourite out of the three.

Have a great weekend.
