Love is still in the air...

What can I say? I like making Valentine's Day cards.

Here's one using SCACD's new ever-so-cool Soul Chimes stamp together with the Steampunk Heart from the also new, also cool Steampunk Heart with Wings set. I think the Soul Chimes stamp is very cool and would look good on all sorts of projects!

Soul Chimes was stamped with Pearlescent Poppy Brilliance ink onto pink patterned paper from last year's Valentine's Day 6x6 pad by Authentique, then embossed with Clear Detail Embossing powder. Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen was used to add shimmer and sparkle to the dangly hearts, stars, and circles. I would have used my beloved Clear Stardust Gel pen, but it was all out of sparkle. Big bummer.

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the Steampunk Heart, then it too was stamped with Pearlescent Poppy Brilliance ink and embossed. I colored the heart with cool gray Copic markers, then filled in the outline with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.

Washi tape was added to the base of the card front, which was then matted on dark silvery gray metallic cardstock by Bazzill Basics. I mounted the card front onto deep red cardstock and called it done. It was a relatively quick and easy card for someone who doesn't do quick and easy often.

Thanks for visiting today!
