Multiple Hearts

I am ALL about using up scraps on my cards! I use larger pieces of paper on my scrapbook pages, so I know I have to use up the smaller pieces on cards.  While at a crop this weekend, I pulled out a bunch of pieces of black and white patterned paper, and some that I just thought were pretty. I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Sizzix Hearts framelits, in two of the smaller sizes--one larger and two smaller of the same paper. And now I've been using them to make some simple Valentine's Day cards. I'm using the same general design, mostly just changing the color schemes.

  This one in the reds seems to be the most Traditional.

 I used the Darice Corner flourishes embossing folder on the Bazzil textured white card stock to add interest. It came out very clean and really made the card rather spectacular. The larger heart is on dimensionals to add interest as well.

I recently purchased my MISTI and have to admit, I probably couldn't have done the Sentiment stamping on these without it. It allowed me to make sure things were exactly where I wanted them, AND I could re-ink several times, which was necessary on the textured card stock. You can learn more about this fabulous tool on their website,

My favorite variation is this super simply lavender card. I can't tell you what any of the designer papers or even the card stock is for any of these, except that the white is Bazzil textured, since this all came from my scrap-bins! The Happy Valentine's Day Stamp is Love Grows, from My Sentiments Exactly.

Most of my friends are drawn to this more indepth card, with teal and pink. The ribbon says "I Love You."  I do really like the look of the sentiment being through the window. The texture was done with Sizzix Swiss Dots embossing folding, to match the little back-ground dots on the hearts. All inks are Stampin Up!--I seem to have a major addiction to their inks!

 Thank you for looking and please feel free to comment or share!
