Valentine decor

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi everyone!

Svitlana is here today sharing an idea of decor for Valentine day which is right around the corner.

I'm obsessed with apartment decor projects and always happy when can use my cardmaking supplies to make them.

The idea of this project came to my mind last year – to make a heart made of Altenew Vintage Roses. But I didn't have time to implement this idea and it was on my must do list since then.

It's pretty simple although a bit time consuming to make.

First I stamped and die-cut a lot of roses using Vintage Roses stamps set and coordinating Vintage Roses Dies set. I made roses of different sizes and shades using  Cotton CandyFrosty PinkCoral BerryRuby Red and Grapevine inks. Next I stamped and die-cut several leaves using stamps and dies from the same sets (stamped with Frayed LeafForest Glades and Evergreen inks).

Found a frame in my stash that could fit for this project, being guided by it figured out the size of the heart and cut a heart from a piece of sturdy cardstock.

From that point I started adhering roses on the cut heart. Once I had the heart fully covered with roses – I tackled leaves here and there, in order to prevent my flowers to blend too much.

Next I added several roses which were adhered on craft foam die-cut, to add some dimension to that decor piece.

Finally I adhered roses heart to a piece of white cardstock cut to the frame size.

If you are not into home decor too much – you can implement this idea just for a simple card. You will just need a smaller heart and less roses.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

It is so funny…I accidently came up with a similar design and just put it on a scrapbook page. When I put it on Instagram I saw your heart. Great minds! I didn’t use any greenery on mine. Love the way yours looks!

Thank you a lot! I don’t think, that my idea is so original. I had it popped up in my head but this could be reflection of something I saw before. Like in a magazine of store window or something :)

I love it! I love finding ways to use the “Paper Craft” items to create home decor makes me feel its worth spending the money on these items to begin with. Thanks for sharing something different than a card Great Idea may have to try this myself

I hear you! The same with me! using at least one (from thousands) product for something except cards makes me feel so accomplished haha.
I’m glad you liked this idea!
