IO DT Challenge- Valentines/Love

Are you ready for some Valentines yet? Today the Impression Obsession design team is all about Valentines and cards that express love. I couldn't decide between my stamps, so I actually ended up making two cards.

The first card features one of the Cover a Card backgrounds instead of a heart image. I stamped the Tapestry background (CC025) twice onto white cardstock using Colorbox Chalk Warm Red ink. One stamping was used for the background and the other I used to punch out a heart using a craft punch. To finish the card, I added a saying from the Heartlines cling set (3107-XL) and used some red rhinestones to "color" the heart.

For the second card, I broke out one of my Leigh Hannan heart stamps that is a little different from traditional Valentine hearts. I stamped the Moon and Stars heart onto white cardstock using black Memento ink. I then colored the heart with Copic markers and added some silver Stardust pen to the stars and the moon. To finish the card, I added some blue and purple cardstock and layered everything onto a metallic silver card.
