Heart Card

It's Tuesday which is my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. This week's theme over at the Topflight Stamps blog is "Anything Goes".  I've made a card that is heart themed, but not especially Valentine-y with PaperArtsy's Eclectica EDY01 Cling Rubber Stamp Set by DarcyInk and the Dog Mini 124 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp, and two colors of Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints.

Here it is!

Topflight Stamps Products Used:
Pink Petunia VersaMagic Ink by Imagine Crafts
Deep Red, Geranium Red, May Green and Light Green Zig Clean Color Markers by EK Success
Silver and Black UniPosca Paint Pens by Mitsubishi Pencil Company
Black Pitt Artist Pens by Faber Castell
Cut 'N' Dry Foam Pad by Ranger Ink
Repositionable Label Paper by Avery
Stamping Platform

  1. Cut a piece of black cardstock to 10" x 7", score at 5", and fold to form an A7 card. Set aside.
  2. Apply drops of Vintage Lace and Blah Mange Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints to a small piece ofCut 'N' Dry Stamping Foam
  3. Pounce the foam onto a craft sheet to mix the paints, then pounce the foam onto a panel of mixed media cardstock. Repeat this process until the panel was covered. 
  4. Trim the panel to 4.75" x 6.75" and heat set.
  5. Place the Ink and the Dog Mini 124 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp onto an acrylic mount. 
  6. Ink the stamp with Pink Petunia VersaMagic ink and stamp onto the painted panel.
  7. Repeat Step 6 until the panel is mostly stamped. Heat set.
  8. Use magnets to secure the stamped painted panel to the base of a stamping platform.
  9. Position the heart border from the Eclectica EDY01 Cling Rubber Stamp Set by Darcy facedown at the top of the image panel.
  10. Ink the stamp with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and stamp the border. Heat set.
  11. With the border stamp still in place on the platform's lid, rotate the image panel 180° so that the stamped top of the image panel is now secured at the base of the platform.
  12. Re-ink the stamp and stamp the border again. Heat set.
  13. Remove the border stamp from the platform's lid.
  14. Move the image panel 1" to the right keeping it flush with the base of the stamping platform. Secure it with magnets. 
  15. Position the zipper heart stamp from the Eclectica EDY01 Cling Rubber Stamp Set by Darcy on the platform's lid so that it will be centered on the image panel.
  16. Ink the stamp with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and stamp the heart onto the image panel. Heat set. 
  17. Place repositionable label paper over the image panel, re-ink the stamp, and stamp.
  18. Remove both the image panel and the label paper.
  19. Fussy-cut the label paper version to be used as a mask.
  20. Heat set the image panel.
  21. Use Watercolor markers to color the images. 
  22. Use White colored pencil was used to add highlights to the hearts. 
  23. Use Silver Uni-Posca Paint pen to color the zipper.
  24. Use Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Glitter Brush Pens - Clear Overlay to add a touch of sparkle to the gemstone hanging from the focal heart.
  25. Apply Red Geranium Zig pen to your craft sheet, mist your finger with water, and use it to edge the image panel. Repeat until the entire piece is edged.
  26. Place the fussy-cut mask over the heart. Tap Black and silver paint pens to splatter the image panel. 
  27. Use Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink to edge the image panel. Heat set the entire panel, concentrating on the edge.
  28. Adhere the image panel to the reserved A7 black card.
  • VersaMagic is a chalk pigment ink by Imagine Crafts. I wanted to see how it would look stamped onto a Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint background. I was really happy with the result!
  • While coloring the images with one of the red watercolor markers, I had a bit of a happy accident. I inadvertently got a red fingerprint on the image panel, decided it looked cool, then used a wet finger and the red marker to edge the image panel.
Thanks for visiting today!
