Lots of hearts

I was looking through pictures on Pinterest the other day and found a picture I really liked. Pinterest is a great inspiration source when your mojo is down. Not that mine is particulary often;). This is the picture:

Beautiful isn't it? And here's my card:

The papers are from an older collection by Fabscraps. I have a HUGE pile of old and random sheets and scraps that I've decided to get rid of by using them. And the ones I can't find a way to use I'm going to send to a friend whose son loves to play with paper.

I inked the paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it a little more of a red shade. Die cut the hearts and inked 2 of them with Salty Ocean and a green-blue ink. Can't remember which one though. Then I embossed the hearts with clear UTEE. The other 2 hearts I gave a coat of Glossy Accent and then I poured Platinum Distress Glitter over them.

I have one more card to share with you today. I started off with adhering strips of pattern papers on a scrap piece of paper. I used the same die set as in the previous card to cut out the larger and smaller heart. I also die cut a heart in the center of the bigger heart and then I pieced the smaller heart into the negative space. This puzzle inlay technique is a favorite of mine. As a finishing touch I added some bling and pearls.
