Sprinkled Expressions Valentines with Embossing
I have two Valentines to share today. They are similar but a little different. Both use the same stamp from Sprinkled Expressions, which is one of the exclusive Sale-A-Bration stamps this year. They both use 1/4" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, both have a Whisper White base beneath a Real Red layer, and both have a row of hearts along the bottom made by one of the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. These are in the new Occasions Mini Catalog and contain three small embossing folders which are ideal for creating a border along the edge of your project.
The first card has stripes along the side which I made using the Simply Scored tool. I love this tool! It has simplified so many tasks and added new possibilities. I would never have tried decorative scoring without the Simply Scored tool. My hand just isn't steady enough. The sentiment was punched out with the extra large oval punch and layered in one of the two frames included with the Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.
This card has a second row of hearts along the top. The sentiment was also punched out with the extra large oval punch, but this time I sponged the edges with matching Real Red ink and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it.
