Hearts and Dreams

Hi and welcome to my blog  :)  I have one of my 15 minute card samples for the Chocolate Baroque DT blog ( ) to share with you today.  This is something the design team do bi-monthly to inspire readers who want to make a quick card.  I have used stamps from the  Harlequin Rose and Key to my Dreams sets; Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Candied Apple; gold marker pen, black embossing powder, black Versafine ink.

I started by creating the background with a piece of white card, onto which I blended the Distress inks.  I then used water to randomly faux bleach the panel.  When dry I used the gold pen around the edges of the panel, matted it onto black card, then layered them onto a white base card.   

I stamped a heart, key and lock images onto acetate and embossed them in black.  I also stamped and embossed a sentiment onto acetate, then cut them all out.  I coloured the heart, key and lock images on the reverse side of the acetate with a gold pen. 

I attached all the images onto the card with clear drying glue.  The embossing really picks out the beautiful detail of these stamps!  

This is a lovely quick card to make and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!  This would make a great Valentine card, or a birthday or anniversary card for your loved one.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, hope to see you here again soon  :)
