Simple Valentine

If you are like me, you have tons of "negatives" left over from using your nestabilities dies.  I don't know about you, but I just can't let paper go to waste so I decided to use one of my heart negatives as a stencil and made two cards which I want to show you today.  Both cards are essentially the same; I just used differnt ink colors and different emebellishments.  For both cards, I centered my "stencil" over my card and held it in place with some removable adhesive and used the background stamp from  PTI's Background Basics: Hearts stamp set to stamp inside the heart.  When I lifted the "stencil" it left this beautiful word heart on my card.

I added a little foil heart and a metal sentiment to the first card which was stamped in Pure Poppy ink and Viola! done.

For this second card I used Hibuscus ink and a the scrap of a scallop heart I had cut for a previous project.
This masking technique can be done with any of your nestabilities or other cut out shapes so I have started to stash these in a ziploc bag for future use.  Later this week I will have another card using a nestabilities scrap as a mask so I hope you'll stop back.


  1. So simple - yet gorgeous!
    Love them both!

  2. Cibele..... you should have sent that first card in to a is original and stunning...I can see it on the pages of Papercrafts...You are SO creative!!!

  3. Both of these are just beautiful! Great cards.

  4. I am so there with you Cibele! You just never know when those frames will come in handy and boy did they ever here! These two cards are fantastic to say the least! Have a great week and I'm looking forward to your next posting! Beth
