For the background I used the gorgeous LACE HEART KALEIDOSCOPE  stamp with embossing powder. This pattern really screams for the emboss resist technique. So I mixed 3 colors of ink pads warm yellow, warm red and raspberry 

Then I didn’t want to cover that beautiful background so I made sure that my elements were not too big. I die cut a small heart and stamped one of the smallest sentiments from the
FROM THE HEART MESSAGES stamp set. To finish off the design I embellished my heart with leaves and a few gems.

  1. A clean and simple card that is perfectly wonderful! The emboss resist technique really allows the design of the background stamp to shine! The smaller elements add a nice focal point without detracting from the background. ?

  2. Hi, Vicky – Always so happy to see your name on a blog hop list! Your card is BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for reminding me to do emboss resist!

  3. This card is all about the stunning colors of your inks. They are so vibrant and rich! Love what you did to feature the blending by not covering it up with embellishments.

  4. Love your card! It’s so easy to do and I also love that background stamp. You can dress it up so easily.

  5. The beautiful emboss resist on your card is gorgeous! Makes the heart pop and the new Kisses release from Simon is so great!!!

  6. Gorgeous card, Vicky! Emboss resist is a favorite technique of mine, yet I rarely remember to use it. You’ve inspired me to pull out some background stamps and make some backgrounds to be used later. That way if I need a card in a hurry I’m halfway there! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I thought I left a comment earlier, but I don’t see it so maybe I forgot to hit the Post Comment button? Anyway, I love your card and emboss resist is a favorite technique of mine too. You’ve inspired me to make some backgrounds!!

  8. Awesome valentine card. I love the lace heart kaleidoscope background – it is so unique and can be used for a variety of cards and multi-media projects.

  9. Love your card. Heat embossing and color blending are still two of my favorite techniques in card making.

  10. Your projects did not appear when I
    came to the blog. Not sure what the
    problem was. Sorry to miss them.
    I know they would have been

  11. What a lovely card! The white embossed image is beautiful and of course, really stands out with your ink blending! The heart and sentiment are simple and sweet. Thank you for the video. It’s always enjoyable to see you make your cards.

  12. That was just beautiful, and I loved that you used things from your stash. I’ve never noticed anyone else admitting to it.

  13. Hi Vicky..lovely project..that stamp is very versatile…love the emboss technique…colours are awesome ? ? ?

  14. Hi there Vicky. The card images are not loading for me. I can see the card on the You Tube link but all your other photos are bland fields.
