Hello again, How are all my fellow crafty friends?
I have another card this week to share with you all that I created for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge blog,
Again this is my first time ever entering a card in over at SIP, but it’s turning out to be a week for “first times” so I’m on a roll. =)
This week at the SIP Challenge blog we have a very fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Sandy.
I decided to play along choosing the right hand side and going down with, Heart, Pink and Bling!

I really liked my other card design for this week with the square area as a focal point,
 so wanting to stick with a good thing, I carried on with that design for this cute little card I made too.
I started off by using my We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board to trim down my favourite cardstock, making an A2 top folding card out of Trophee Board White Linen 240 GSM Paper.
Next I took some Crumb Cake cardstock and die cut a stitched square from Lil’ Inker Designs, I then dry embossed my stitched square with my Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I feel that by embossing the stitched square it gave the card a bit more texture, whilst still keeping it soft and feminine.

I then die cut four Watermelon Wonder hearts using the Small Heart Doily die set from Simon Says Stamp, Now because this challenge calls for “bling” I decided to put my Clear Wink Of Stella pen to good use and gave each heart a generous coating of that wonderful glitter, and just to fancy it up a bit I also covered each heart in Rangers Glossy Accents, just to give them a nice finishing shine.
While my hearts were drying and before I added my sentiment, I adhered my stitched square down with some Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I did this first so I didn’t stamp my sentiment to high or low from where I wanted it.
Using a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Good Greetings I took the “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamp again and stamped this with Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder.

Once the Glossy Accents had completely dried on the hearts I adhered them to my card, I popped
each heart up with a few Best Creation Small 3D Foam Tape Dots so my card wasn’t completely flat.
To add a bit more bling to the card and to tie in with the gold sentiment I also added two super cute wee Gold Glimmer Paper flowers made with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
Again a very quick and easy card to make, I hope the judges at SIP like what I came up with though.
I think this card is super cute and feminine, exactly what I had in mind for the person I intend on giving it to.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
