True Love Valentine Card

Hello again this week. Today, I have a Valentine card that was used in the Ranger booth at this years Creativation, which showcases Tim Holtz Distress Mica Spray from Ranger.
I cut a black surfaces tag a little shorter and then embossed it with the Tiles Texture Fade from Sizzix and Tim.
I misted the tag with Tarnished Brass Distress Mica Spray.
I painted over a piece of Water Color Cardstock with Peacock Feathers, and then misted Brushed Pewter through a mini Bubbles Stencil.
Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool, I stenciled Hearts over the card.
Once the paint was dry, I stenciled over the hearts again with Tarnished Brass Mica Spray.
I die cut a Baroque Movers and Shapers with Tim's Corrugate Textured Surface, and added Peacock Feathers over the raised portions, and then misted Brushed Pewter Mica Spray over it.
I cut out the Found Relative card, punched a Candied Apple Distress painted piece with the heart punch, and adhered it his hand.
I misted Crinkle Ribbon with Candied Apple and Tarnished Brass, and tie it on.
I finally added Botanical Remnant Rubs to the card, stitched around it, and adhered everything.

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. Beautiful work and easy tutorial to follow. How exciting to have your work at a CHA booth.

  2. Red and turquoise, my favorite colours! Love this card Anita!

  3. Great tutorial girlie! Happy Valentine's!

  4. Love this, so clever to put the heart in the man's hand! Funny too, because I just used that same couple on a Valentine card I have posted today - LOL. Your color combo is terrific. I never would have thought to use those two colors together but it really gives the card so much life and joy!


  5. Reminds me of photos of family - back in the day!! Really fun Valentine Anita. Great layers and love the corrugated texture! HAPPY VALENTINE'S Day to you. Xj.

  6. Love this card, Anita! Very clever putting the heart in the man's hand! Fabulous color combination and wonderful tutorial

  7. It is amazing how the mica spray shows up on the Peacock Feathers and also on the red hearts, it gives such a lovely sheen. Love that combination of the blue and red and that glorious bow is a wonderful finishing touch on your beautiful card! Hugs, Anne xx

  8. Your gorgeous card Anita has wonderful depth and sheen. Nice trick the way he is holding the heart! Nicola x

  10. This is such a pretty card. The color scheme you chose is stunning too. Blessings, my friend!

  11. Love this, Anita! Love your little vintage photo, he looks like Christopher Walken. Fantastic, as always!

  12. You always do such great step by step instructions! Love that the little heart is in his hand AND the corrugated background. Love the color combo - Peacock Feathers is an unusual Valentines choice but it works great! (one of my favorite colors...)

  13. Fabulous Anita, love all the wonderful layers and I am sure this must sparkle beautifully with all those lovely Mica spray accents, thanks for sharing your great tutorial! Deb xo
