Heart Background Card- Brutus|Monroe DT Post

Happy Monday!!!! I'm so excited to share first this month...  I know a lot of us have our Christmas cards done so why not start on Valentine's Day cards. I was inspired to make this card By Jennifer Mcguire of Jennifer McGuire Ink on YouTube. I'll share the link to the video/channel at the end of this post.

I used 3 different heart stamps, the large one is from the Many Thanks stamp set and the two smaller ones are from Serena Bee's Deadly Desserts stamp set. I used 3 different stamp blocks to make it easier, but if you just have one or two it's easy to swap the stamps.

Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 X 5.25 inches, and start stamping. I used 5 Brutus|Monroe Premium Chalk Inks. I started with Wagon, there is no right or wrong way to do this just stamp randomly and have fun.
 Just keep going changing colors until you reached the bottom. If you mess up don't worry you can cover it with your sentiment, twine, or bling. Or, just trim it down like I did.  (tip:don't stamp the images in a straight line, let the different colored stamped images mix and blend)

I used a 3.25 X 4.5in die to cut out my background. I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink, and added it to a black card base.  

To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Love You Moon, and backed it with piece of black cardstock. I also added black rhinestones. Here is my finished card, I really hope you like it. 

Products I Used: 
Love you Moon 
Many Thanks 
Deadly Desserts 
Fun Stampers Journey Cardstock
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink 
Distress Ink-Black Soot 
Black Rhinestones

From MEOW To You Card- OAK Tree DT Post

Good evening I made a simple but super cute card for my Design Team project using the OAK Tree Stamps Cat-titude stamp set. Here is my card...


I cut a piece of yellow cardstock  to 4in.X 5 1/4in.. I stamped several images from the Cat-titude stamp set. I also used a tiny heart from Baby Bumps. I like to use a ink that is a similar color as my cardstock it gives it a great watercolor look.  There is no right or wrong way to do this just stamp the larger images first. Then fill in the small spots with little icon stamps.  I added the stamped paper to a A2  card base and added a little flag I hand cut and stamped my sentiment on. I added little enamel hearts just for a finishing touch.

I hope I inspired you to give this a try, it would be super fun with the Puppy Love or Baby Bumps OAK Tree Stamps sets. Please share pics if you give this a try!

What I Used:
OAK Tree Stamp Sets: Cat-itude & Baby Bumps
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
Fun Stampers Journey True Color Fusion Ink- Pineapple Smoothie
Recollections Cardstock
Enamel Hearts-(i think i got them at Tuesday Morning)
