Gina K Designs Tapestry stamp 'Love & Hugs'

 I was super excited when I saw Gina K demonstrating this stamp set before Christmas I knew I just had to have it! The Holiday Tapestry stamp set is designed to be used for Christmas and Hanukkah, but really the gorgeous floral design can be used all year round. People who know me know I am not a huge flower person, but this stamp just 'spoke' to me! Lol!

I decided to use this stamp set to make my hubby's Valentine card this year. 

 I have also been spending far too much time watching YouTube videos! I watched a video from Jennifer McGuire on techniques for using white ink on cards too. This was inspired by  her video.

I used the Holiday Tapestry stamp set to stamp the flowers onto red cardstock with Versamark ink. I used some of the smaller flowers and leaves in the set to fill in the gaps. I then heat embossed this with clear embossing powder.

I used some Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink with MFT's Candy Stripes stencil to create the fun white lines. I removed the stencil and then wiped down the heat embossing to remove the white ink. I then reheated the embossing to bring back the shine. I love how this turned out. I cut down the panel to fit onto the white card panel.

I then used the Gina K love die from the 'A Little Love Layering Stencil Bundle' and cut it 3 times from black cardstock. I then layered them all together. I stamped the sentiment AND HUGS from the 'A Little Love' stamp set directly onto the white card panel.

I adhered the panel onto a standard A2 black card base and finished off the card with some red hearts from Gina K's embellishment pack - Rainbow Hearts.
I love how this card has turned out, and hopefully the hubby will too!


Thanks for looking!
