Hi, thanks for popping by...

I love the Jewelled Heart Die Set so much that I decided to show you another way it can be used, compared to yesterday's card, where I created a shadow effect with it.
Below are the 'ingredients'  for today's card/tutorial

  • Fillables - Jewelled Heart Die Set by SW for CE
  • Heart Shaped Treat Cups by CE
  • Stamp Set by John Lockwood for CE
  • Cascading Hearts Embossing Folder by SW for CE
  • Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear PVA Glue by CE
  • Adirondak 'Pitch Black' Ink Pad by Ranger
  • MISTI Stamping Tool ~ my preference but not obligatory
  • Crafter's Companion Pearlised card 
  • Silver Mirri Card (my own stash)
  • Flowers (my own stash)
  • Spellbinders' Platinum Machine

I cut the pearlised card to 6.75"x5.5" and placed this inside my MISTI.  The area to be stamped was dusted with an anti-static bag prior to placing the stamp in position.  I inked the stamp with the pitch black ink pad and stamped the card.  I only stamped this once as I did not want a heavy black sentiment when the rest of the card was white and silver.

The inner cutting die was put into position and die cut.  Once cut I then place the card in the embossing folder and ran it through my Platinum.  This is my personal choice for die cutting and embossing.  I still have my 2 Grand Caliburs and my trusty Cuttlebug.  The Cuttlebug is ideal to sit on your work table when card making, providing you are using smaller dies, and my Grand Calibur machines are used when I have card classes.

I applied Cosmic Shimmer Glue to the back of the heart cut out and near to the edge prior to placing the treat cup into the aperture.  You will see above how, when I applied pressure to the treat cup edge, the glue as spread a little.  That is not a problem, you need to have the treat cup securely adhered to the card.  To ensure the contents would not 'escape' I then added ordinary tape to the edges.
I added the cut out hearts, from the die set, and some silver sequins into the treat cup then adhered a piece of silver mirri over the opening to ensure the contents remained in the cup!

I am unable to show you just how beautiful the Jewelled Heart actually is once it is die cut because using mirri card did not produce a clear image when photographed on its own.  It is a beautiful die set and if you scroll to yesterday's post you will see I have used it there but on white card and pink card.  Prior to adhering the mirri jewelled heart, over the treat cup, I added Cosmic Shimmer Glue around the base of the cup.  I then applied the glue to the back of the die cut but, not, to the edge of the mirri because I am unable to do this without spreading the glue over the outer part of the treat cup!  So if you add the glue to the cut edge, as above, you should not mark the cup

To complete the card I added one heart to the top right of the card and a few flowers to the bottom left of the card.  These were from my stash
