Pixel Heart Valentines Cards :: Two Ways

Hi Crafty Friends! Stephanie Benavides here with 2 Valentine's Day Cards! I used the same stencils in 2 different ways to make these cute Valentines.
I started both cards in the same way. I cut white cardstock to 5" x 3.75" for my card panel and 2 different pink cardstocks to 5.5" x 4.25" to put the white card panels on. I then inked the pink cardstocks using the grid stencil and white pigment ink.
I started on the pink hearts first. I lined up the largest heart stencil and inked it with my lightest pink. I then lined up the next size down heart stencil, making sure the bottom of the hearts were lined up. I inked with a pink that's just a tad darker. I kept going this way with all the heart stencils and using darker pinks as I went. I used the 3rd pink to stamp the Solid Saying sentiments to tie them to the hearts. I glued down my finished card panel to one of the pink cardstock panels.
Next, I moved on to inking the rainbow heart stack. I used the 2nd largest heart stencil for this card. I started with the blue heart to make sure the hearts would be centered. I then inked the top yellow heart and pink heart at the bottom, making sure to line them up with one pixel overlapping.
Once the ink dried, I started on the sentiment using the Solid Sayings set again. I inked each one with black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I glued the card panel down to the other pink panel to finish it up.
I really love the way these Valentine's Cards came out, they remind me of the cards my boys trade at school. Thanks for joining me today and have a wonderful day!
