Sweet Talk


Today, I have a fun couple of Valentine cards to share with you.  For these cards, I used the Sweet Talk Bundle from Concord & 9th's January release.   I fell in love with this set when I saw the pretty fronds in the heart shape, and the dies that coordinated.  

For the first card, I used the large heart image from the Sweet Talk Stamp Set, which I stamped in Versamark Ink onto Grapefruit Cardstock.  I white heat embossed the image, before cutting it out with the large heart die in the Sweet Talk Die Set.  Using the Pale Vermillion pencil from my Prismacolor Pencil Set, I colored in the open portions of the fronds.  I also stamped and heat embossed a second heart onto Pale Rose Cardstock, and die cut it as well (I only used half of the heart in the end). 

With the Sweet Talk Die Set, I cut four of the fronds out of Wheat Cardstock, and a set of the smaller hearts out of Sea Glass Cardstock.  I layered the hearts and fronds together, and added foam tape to the back side.  

On a piece of White Cardstock, cut to card front size (5.25" x 4"), I laid the hearts in place (with the foam tape backing still on) to see where to stamp the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment, from the Sweet Talk Stamp Set, with Sorbet Ink, using the MISTI.  Then, I removed the backing from the foam tape, and adhered the large heart cluster in place.  I added the smaller Sea Glass hearts with liquid glue, and then adhered a scattering of Fashion Gold Pieces.  The card front was attached to a white card base, made from heavyweight white cardstock, using foam tape.  

For the second card, I stamped  the large heart image from the Sweet Talk Stamp Set, in Versamark Ink, directly onto a card front panel of Wheat Cardstock.  Then, I stamped and heat embossed the "XOXO" sentiment from the set onto Black Cardstock, before cutting the strip to size, and cutting the end at an angle.  I also stamped the "Be Mine" sentiment onto Pale Rose Cardstock, again using Sorbet Ink.  

I die cut the smaller hearts from the Sweet Talk Die Set, out of Sea Glass Cardstock, and Grapefruit Cardstock.  Then I layered the pieces together using foam tape and liquid adhesive.  I again added a scattering of Fashion Gold Pieces, before attaching the card front directly to a white card base, made from heavyweight white cardstock.

That's the cards for today.  While I chose to go with a Valentine theme on my cards, the Sweet Talk Bundle would certainly work for anniversaries, weddings, and thinking of you type cards as well.  

Thanks for stopping by!
