I'm going to share with you seven cards for the new release, today.  

My first two cards are featuring Outlined Hearts Die .


First, I die cut it out of watercolor paper, and I colored the Outlined Hearts diecuts using Mijello Mission Gold watercolor set. I die cut the hearts outlines three times and glued them layer by layer to add some dimension. 



I trimmed another watercolor panel into 4.25"x5.5" for a backdrop, and I lightly colored the center using DS and let it dry. All the edges were distressed using a paper distresser. 



Next, I glued the hearts outline on the panel and inlayed watercolored hearts. In order to give some interesting look, I added lots of splatters of darker paint, white gouache and metallic gold ink. 



A sentiment from Oversized Heart Stamp Set were heat embossed in gold on a vellum strip and I glued both sides of the strip onto the back of the panel. 



Moving on to the second card, I prepared a red backdrop panel by diecutting dark red cardstock with Fancy Frames Die, then I created negative cut window of Outlined Hearts Die on the center. I adhered the panel onto gray colored striped pattern paper, then I in layed white diecut of Outlined Hearts Die, which I glued three to four layers for dimensional look. 



I then adhered various colors of clear jewels into each heart well so that it looked like a shaker. But it's not a shaker ! Once again, I mounted sentiment block from Oversized Heart Stamp Set on top, and adhered the card front onto the same colored cardbase. 



For embellishment, I adhered a couple of white heart clay confettis, which added lovelier look to the card.



The next two cards mainly feature the Quilted Hearts Texture Die

For this card, I started with making gradient black and grey panel using watercoloring. I let the panel dry and then ran it through a cutting maching with Quilted Hearts Texture Die. I added darker shades to the heart by applying Black Soot DO ink through Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil on top of the panel. I splattered with white gouache and metallic gold inks over the panel. 



Next, I adhered sentiments that were made using Oversized Heart Combo. For more embellishment, I watercolored hearts from Outlined Hearts  diecut pieces in red, yellow, and indigo, then I adhered them around the sentiment.  



I foam mounted my panel onto gray cardstock and finished off the card. 


For the second card, I decided to go with an infinity shaker. I made similar watercolor panel with Quilted Hearts Texture Die, then I heat embossed all the four edges in gold using versamark ink and gold embossing powder. 


I used OHP film to make infinity shaker pouch. It is thinner than the usual acetate sheets, so I can easily make score lines and fold it. I put lots of  sequins, confettis, and hearts clay confettis into the pouch, and sealed the shaker off. 


After I glued Oversized Heart Word Die cut which was colored with pink dye ink, I adhered the shaker onto a card base made with plum cardstock. 




Now, here're the last three cards which showcase the Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil

For the first card, I cut a piece of Bristol paper with Quilted Hearts Texture Die, then I ink blended it lightly with DO Tattered Rose and Dried Marigold. I then placed Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil - that matches with Quilted Hearts Texture Die - onto the panel, and applied various colors of dye inks through the stencil. 


For the larger hearts, I gave gradient colors from violet, pink to orange and for the smaller hearts, I colored in with puprple, navy, light blue and teal inks. You can use any colors of inks you have in your stash. 
 
I added splatters of inks, white gouache and gold metallic inks all over the panel, then I addhered sentiments from Oversized Heart Combo



Next is a duo of same design with different color palettes. 



I made colored panels with Quilted Hearts Texture Die and Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil using various dye inks. To make front panels, I die cut ivory cardstock Nesting Portrait Arches Die and lightly colored them using a blending brush. 


I then foam mounted the front window panel onto my hearts backdrop. Before adhering them together, I made a vellum strip on which sentiments were heat embossed and glued it on the back of fron panel. The card base was made with eggplant cardstock. 



FYI, dye ink colors I used for the first card are Blush, Rouge, Coral Berry, Crimson, Velvet, Nimbus, Lagoon, Teal Cave, Galactic Stream from altenew. 



For the second card, I used Sicilian Amber, Yellow Ochre, Pumpkin Pie, Amethyst, Grape Agate, Plum, Andromeda, Firebrick, Orange Cream, Rouge, Coral Berry, and Crimson. 




That's it for me today. Thank you for reading this post.

  16. I'm glad I read the description about the red card. I was sure it was a shaker but you so cleverly "disguised" it as one. It's really clever and very pretty! πŸ’–
