Love is in the Air.....

For the new Occasions Mini!  I am so in love with so many of the stamps, the buttons the RIBBON just everything.  So, here is another post for you
This is a card I did for a swap so if you are in a swap with me you may receive on of these cards or we may be doing one for a girls card night so stay tuned!!!

 This card is actually larger than a regular size card but that is ok my love is huge!
I started with Crumb Cake for the base and used I (love) Love Stampin Around Wheel and Versa Mark as well as my Stampin Up! wheel guide to get the lines straight and with no gaps.  I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I used Cherry Cobbler and Versa mark with clear for the Love phrase from You Are Loved  I punched that out with the Oval Punch then popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals on to the Frame from the same stamp set that was embossed with the same technique.
I used the Framelits Hearts to cut out the layered hearts for the front. The second heart was run through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots embossing folder.  The small hearts are from a New Sizzlits for the Big Shot -- sooooo cute!  They work just like the Butterfly one we have so they cut and emboss a texture on the hearts all at once.

The Center piece with the Stamp of the Boy and Girl on the Bike is a Fav of mine and is from the stamp set Take it to Heart. I used a cool technique on it to create all the different colours  within the stamp.  I coloured the stamp with markers!!  Then when you have your "master piece" created you  blow on the stamp to re-activate the ink and then stamp and Voila multi- tonal effect.  Stampin Write markers are just so awesome for this and of course they match my projects so there you go no need to worry where you will find ribbon, brads or anything to match.

The inside of the card continued with the heart theme with more sizzlit hearts.  And an embossed greeting as well.

Enjoy your morning and check back for more cool cards later today!
