  1. Cut and score card base to 4.25 x 5.5 inches to create a top folding notecard. I use 130lb. cardstock for all of my card bases to make it very sturdy.
  2. Cut kraft cardstock panel to 4 x 5.25 inches.
  3. Use mini MISTI stamp positioner and insert kraft panel into one corner.
  4. Place Hero Arts Chocolate Candy Cling Stamp on top of panel – stamp side down.
  5. Close the door of the MISTI to cling in same spot.
  6. Open MISTI door and ink up background stamp using Altenew Espresso Ink cube.
  7. Close door and press evenly to ensure crisp image onto cardstock.
  8. Use envelope punch to round corners of card base and background panel.
  9. Glue panel to card base.

If you have not used background stamps, think about trying it! it is a fast way to add a cute or pretty image to your card!

  1. Use Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt lacy heart stamp and ink with Altenew Heart Beat Ink.
  2. Stamp onto cardstock strip.
  3. Without cleaning the stamp, ink it again using Altenew Pink Pearl Ink.
  4. Repeat this until you have about 6 lacy heart images. (I make extra.)
  5. Use Stampin’ Up! Solid Heart Punch to punch out a red heart and a pink heart.
  6. Use Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Heart Punch to punch out 2 pink hearts.
  7. Adhere a larger round dimensional foam dot to the middle of the scalloped hearts.
  8. Remove release paper and add the solid hearts on top of the scalloped hearts.

I only used two hearts instead of the three as I had planned. That’s what I love about crafting is you can change your mind and still make it look great! Also, I believe the heart border punch I used from Stampin’ Up! is retired, but I have a similar option linked in the products used below.

  1. Take a thin strip of pink cardstock and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set using Altenew Espresso Ink.
  2. Use Stampin’ Up! scalloped edge border punch to create a small scallop on both sides of the sentiment.
  3. Rub Altenew Heart Beat Ink cube onto a strip of cardstock.
  4. Use Stampin’ Up! small Hearts punch to punch out many small hearts.
  5. On the unused portion of cardstock rub Altenew Pink Pearl Ink cube.
  6. Use the small Hearts punch again to cut out lighter hearts.
  7. Use these small hearts as embellishments choosing between dark and light hearts.

A few notes to remember is that if you have to cut around images before using a punch, create a little handle to glue to the small piece to guide and easily punch out an image. This gives you more control over the punched image so that it does not slide and gets crooked inside of the punch.
