Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday!  It’s time to start making Valentine’s cards at my house and today I have a very quick an easy one.  It features two of my favorite Magenta stamps, the Heart Tapestry and “Love Makes the World Go Round.”

I cut a piece of 110# white cardstock to measure 4” x 5 ½”.  I placed it in my stamp positioner, then positioned the heart stamp in the upper left corner of the cardstock.  I inked the stamp with two shades of pigment ink and stamped the image.  I slid the cardstock up (without moving the stamp) about 2 1/8”.  I cleaned the stamp, reinked and stamped the second heart image.  I repeated the same process a third time, then embossed the images with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with clear embossing powder also.

I had originally planned something more elaborate for this card like ink smooshing with Distress Inks or trimming the strip of hearts and matting it on a strip of gold cardstock and then adding it onto another piece of cardstock where the sentiment was stamped.  However, after I finished the embossing, I decided that I liked the simplicity of the card and decided to stop.  I matted the card, adhered it to an A2 card, then added a few gems for a bit of sparkle.  This turned out to be a very quick card. 

Thanks for visiting the Magenta blog today.

I've always loved the heart tapestry stamp; I like the way you combined ink colors on the stamp.
