Today’s card is from me simply playing with products.  The new Adoring Hearts Hybrid Folder is amazing!  And paired with Sale-A-Bration DSP it is even better.

The Adoring Hearts Bundle is actually three parts.  And it is amazing!!!  The hearts you see on the card are from the Hybrid Embossing Folder and Dies used together.  I think it is really amazing how these work.  It is so cool that the die simply lays into it’s slot in the folder.  Sort of getting a two for one.  There are six heart shapes included in the one die.  And there are 6 heart shapes in the embossing folder.  The images make two each of three different designs on the hearts.  I have only used two of the hearts on my card.  But you can see the great detail.


The stamp set is one that can be used for any “loving” card.  There are hearts, flowers, and some sweet sentiments.  The sentiment I chose to use is from the stamp set.  And actually the shape is another die from the die set.  I chose to emboss the sentiment using Gold Embossing Powder to match the gold of the DSP.


The soft Bubble Bath of the hearts matches great with the Moody Mauve in my opinion.  The Moody Mauve keeps it from being overly sweet.  I used the same Moody Mauve for the strip, which is offset just a bit, to ground the hearts and sentiment.  And the Gold Foil behind the DSP is just more bling!  It really helps the DSP gold to pop.

The DSP is from Sale-A-Bration.  It is the Most Adored Designer Series Paper.  I have seen several of those pieces that are gold and white being colored.  So I thought I would give it  a try.  The almost Bubble Bath coloring I have is actually by using Blending Brushes and Moody Mauve Ink.  I was surprised at the softness of the color it produced.  After I had finished blending, I took a tissue and wiped over the DSP.  This helps to get any extra ink off of the gold sections.  We want the gold to shine!


The final touch was to add just a bit more bling.  I debated over several different gold embellishments.  But ended with one of the softest bling we have, the Brushed Brass Butterflies.  I love these little guys.  And they are generally Just Enough!!


The Moody Mauve card base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  The Gold Foil layer is cut to 3 5/8 X 4 7/8 and the DSP is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4.  For the strip of Moody Mauve, it is cut to 1 X 4 3/4.
