Darcy, Stampin Blends alcohol pens, Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap

Happy valentines day

Yup it’s the heart day! We don’t really do anything exchange cards for valentines day… although this year it being all weird with lockdown etc I did order a special cheesecake to celebrate!

Anyways I did make a card for both the hubby and one for the teenager… because well why not?

I used a scrap of the Tim Holtz collage tissue paper and then some stamping for my card for the hubby. I added some sewing and some splats of Cherry Cobbler and Black gesso.

As the focal point I added the embossed heart which is my favourite Darcy heart. I coloured the heart with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blends and then adding the ink around the edge of the panel. I found an old stamp with the right sentiment and added that too.

I added the panel and then some doodles round the card. I also added the star sequin for a finishing touch.

For the teenager I went for a completely different look but also a Darcy heart and some sewing!

I used dsp from the stash in several layers with a layer of the white cardstock. I also added some lace tape some stamped and inked card and a Darcy heart which I raised on dimensionals. I love the sewn element with the contrasting pink thread. I also added the gem and the sentiment.

  1. Both cards are lovely Catherine but I especially like the masculine one you entered in our Addicted to CAS challenge. I love that you kept your collage style grouping to one corner of the panel and kept to a strict colour palette. What a great idea to have a heart-shaped cheesecake (must make a note of that!) Thanks for coming to play with us at Addicted to CAS 🙂 Vicky x
