Blooming Hearts

A fashionably fun design to share love during Valentine’s Day.

Love is in the Air

This stylish girl is part of Penny Black’s "T for Transparent" set called Love is in the Air and is paired with a field of Love Blossoms.         

Fashion Girl Close Up

Her balloon was personalized for the occasion by stamping a "love" sentiment in the center.


  • Create a card base from a Spellbinders Label 14 cut from Coral Reef cardstock.
  • Die cut a slightly smaller Label 14 from white cardstock and stamp Love Blossoms toward the bottom with Spanish Moss VersaFine.  Use a sponge dauber to color the mound with additional Spanish Moss ink.
  • Using a separate sponge dauber, apply Blue Danube Memento ink around the top portion for a bright sky.  
  • Attach the finished piece to the front of the card with dimensional foam tape.
  • On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the girl in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color and trim the image.  Stamp “love” inside the colored balloon.
  • Use a small piece of black string to connect the balloon to the girl’s hand.
  • Attach the finished pieces to the front to of the card with dimensional foam.

To finish... send with love!
