PP29 Valentine's Day with The Paper Players

Hi Stampers!

I created this card for the PP29 Valentine’s Day Theme Challenge at The Paper Players

I love the heart image from the Always set and thought I would incorporate that stamp with some of the new colors and accessories.

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot, emboss a Whisper White panel with the Finial Press EF.  Lightly sponge Cherry Cobbler over the raised images and spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol).  Layer this onto Basic Black and then onto the Whisper White card base.

De-static a piece of Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler using the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the heart image from Always using Versamark ink onto both pieces of cardstock.  Heat emboss with Basic Black EP and carefully cut out each heart around the outside border. 

Ink the En Francais background stamp with Cherry Cobbler and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White.  Sponge the edges with Cherry Cobbler and lightly sponge over the center area as well to tone down the white.  Spray this panel with Frost White Shimmer Paint and adhere to a Basic Black layer (leave a little extra at the bottom of the Basic Black for the punched border using the Pinking Hearts Border Punch). 

Adhere the hearts in an overlapping design onto the En Francais background and attach the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow.  Remove the stem from the Vintage Brad and use a mini glue dot to attach it to the center of the bow.

De-static a small piece of Whisper White and stamp the sentiment from Occasional Quotes in Versamark ink and heat emboss with Basic Black EP.  Layer this onto Basic Black – punch the lower portion with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch as well.
Attach to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Always, En Francais, Occasional Quotes (Hostess Level III)
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Versamark, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press EF, Sponge Dauber, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Basic Black EP, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Vintage Brad, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by and all of your encouragement!
