Hero Arts You Are My Happy

Hello there,

Just in time for Valentine’s Day,  I got a couple of Valentine’s cards to share.  This month’s challenge theme is Mood Board.

There are many beautiful elements to choose from this mood board, but I am most intrigued by the scroll of color swatches on the left top corner.   So I went ahead and created a watercolor panel with vertical stripes of the same colors (at the least very close).

Next I die cut the Floral Heart diagonally, I thought this is more interesting, and then white heat embossed the sentiment.  Instead of using foam adhesive, I die cut two extra time the die cut in red card stock and glued all three layers together to make a thick die cut.  I glued it onto a charcoal grey card base (color of the door in the mood board) and then embellished with sequins.

My next card is very CAS.  I stamped multiple times the smiley heart from the Everything Smiles Stamp and Cut set on heavy weight white card stock, and watercolored them using the same colors as before, and hand cut.  I line them up on a white card base and glue down,  and added a thin stripe of the color swatche.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black, drew a tiny heart inside the ‘o’ of the work ‘love’.  Not sure if you’ve noticed but I score at 1/16 of an inch all around the panel to give a “finished look”.  🙂

  1. So glad to see the inspiration using gray. It is under-rated. Your cards are just delightful.

  2. Wonderful cards. Both are so sweet, but I really like the CAS hearts sitting in a row smiling at me.
