BIG Hugs and DIY Conversation Hearts by Jean Okimoto


Scatter a handful of colorful hearts on a Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate background and add a glittery greeting.  It's a colorful way to send hugs!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline design that's easy to create in your favorite colors too.

Stamp the greetings - from the Big and Little Valentine Words Clear Stamp Set - on different shades of smooth cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair.  Heat-set the ink, then diecut them with the smallest Double Stitch Double Heart Cut Out die.  

Cut 5 hearts from gray cardstock with the smallest die too.  They'll add dimension and a shadowy look to the stamped hearts.

Cut Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate from white cardstock.  Cut five of the hearts with the small Double Stitch Heart Cut Out die.  Attach the pinpoint background to a pink slimline card.  Glue the gray hearts in the cutouts.  Attach the multicolored hearts - at an angle - so the gray inserts create a shadowy look.  

Cut the solid Posh Big Hearts Script background from green cardstock.  

Cut the delicate Post Big Hearts Script  from a white 6x6 sheet from the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad - leave the diecut in the die.  Attach strips of Diecut 'n Bond tape behind the diecut greeting and run it through the machine again to cut the tape.  Remove the offcuts and little bits of tape liner and attach it to the green background.  

Add ¼" punched dots from the pink sheet in the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad.


You can use the Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate in so many ways - it's much more than just a pretty background!  Trim it to form a tag, add a bold greeting and pretty ribbon.  Diecut it into a large heart for a hearts-on-a-heart design.  Transform it into an elegant wedding or anniversary card.  

Thanks for visiting...keep warm and have fun creating Valentines for your special people!





very clever design. love the colors and how you added the hearts.

So sweet and I really like the slim pinpoint heart background. Clever conversation hearts, Jean!
