Live Learn Hope Valentine Card with Tutorial

Learn, Live and Hope is such a fabulous inspirational message!!! It just inspires love and dreams! I can't help but to share the love as we go into Feb and seeing all the Valentine inspiration that is already being shared.

Today I created a Valentine inspired card using the stamps from Blank Page Muse. I began my card by painting a piece of white card stock using DecoArt Media paints.

Because my stamps are unmounted I thought i would run them through my Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker to see if they would fit and work on a stamp block. I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE...THEY WORK PERFECTLY!!!! Once you are done stamping, remove them from the stamp block and place back on the adhesive sheet. Place in small plastic bag or other stamp container.

Place stamps on stamp block and stamp card stock with Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Cut painted card stock down to fit on stamped background card stock. Stamp background image on top.

Die cut Trifecta pieces from white card stock; emboss with Emerald Creek Supplies Embossing Powder.
(To create the embossed layers ... apply Boss Gloss or Embossing Ink over top of each die cut, sprinkle a bit of each embossing powder to the top and heat with embossing gun. Repeat as necessary to achieve the layers of embossed look.) 

Adhere distress red card stock; stamped background pieces and embossed cut out to top of card base.
Spatter with white and black paint.

Stamp heart and butterflies on card stock using Archival ink. 

Color fussy cut images out with Distress Markers.

Layer butterflies together at bodies; tip wings up and add to front of card.

Add stamped sentiment to front of card with pop dots.

Adhere chipboard to card front. Layer hearts together and place on front of card with pop dots. Add bow.

Add a second prepared butterfly to top of card.
