Card Creating Tuesday - Use Distress Inks

For my ***100 Follower Giveaway***, please click HERE

Happy Tuesday all my crafty friends!!
Today is Card Creating Tuesday, and the theme was to make a Valentine's Card, or to use Distress Inks.  I signed up to use Distress Inks, but I used them on a Valentine's day card!!  I have to say that this may just be my favorite of all the valentines cards I have made this year!!

Here is a picture of the supplies that I used for today's card:

I started with a piece of kraft cardstock
from The Paper Company.
I cut the heart shaped card from the
Wild Card Cricut Cartridge at 5".
Next, I used the Divne Swirls Cuttlebug folder to emboss the card.  I then rubbed, Fired Brick Distress Ink all over the embossing.  Then I sprayed the card with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist.  Don't you just love the glimmery sparkle!!

Next, I took a white doily heart that
I have had laying around for a few years!!
I inked that up with Tea Dye Distress ink and also
sprayed with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist.

So next I used the brand new Peachy Keen January Stamp of the month to stamp this adorable little angel!!  I stamped her onto a blush colored cardstock and then colored her in with my Stampin Up Stamp and Write markers and a blending pen.  I added Yellow Stickles to her halo, some tinsel glitter to her wings and some glossy accents.  She is just so adorable, don't you agree!!

I stamped the darling little sentiment from the same stamp set onto the blush colored cardstock with Fired Brick Distress Ink and then hand cut the banner.  I coved the heart with Xmas Red Stickles.  I inked up the banner with the Fired Brick Distress Ink and then crumbled it up
 and then adhered it to my card with foam tape.

I finished off the card with a little bow tied from Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot in Vanilla Bean, which I also colored with the Fired Brick Distress ink.

Here is my finished card.
