Balloon Heart


It's Anja here. My package of new dies arrived this week and I couldn't wait to try it out. First I made a Valentine's card with this cute hedgehogs.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz (Be My Valentine Puppies, Hedgehogs In Love, Love You Mom Phrase),
- Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone) and Oxides (Broken China, Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple),
- grey, brown and green card stock,
- white card base (15x10,5 cm),
- water color paper for background (14,5x10 cm),
- red cotton string,
- cloud plastic stencil,
- baby wipes,
- heat gun,
- adhesive foam pads,
- water spritzer,
- paper glue.

First I cut the heart and colored it with Distress Oxides. I used lighter shades in the inside and darker shades on the edges.

Then I sprinkled it with drops of water. I dried it withe the heat gun.

Then I cut and colored the background.

I used plastic stencil and wiped the clouds with a baby wipe. I dried it withe the heat gun.

I cut parts for the hedgehogs from the colored paper. I used Distress Inks to color the edges and add some dimension.

Then I cut the sentiment and a little heart. I used grey card stock for the sentiment.

I cut a piece of green card stock for grass. I tore one side of it. I used Distress Ink around the edges.

When I had everything cut and colored I started gluing the bits on the card base. I used adhesive foam pads for the hedgehogs ...

and the heart. I used double here. In between bottom two I put the string.

And then I glued everything together and here is m finished card.

This is all from me for today. You can get the dies from the Valentine's release in the store for a 25 % discount.

Have a great Sunday and see you again next week.
