The Love Production Line...

Hi my friends, I'm back on Brodie's Machu Picchu World Challenge 2021 card making production line and with Valentine's Day just a few weeks away, love has been in the air in the cubbyhole. I was inspired by Monday's Art Journal page to make these cards, using some of the same products from Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous, Sizzix, Simon Says Stamp and Ranger which were still sitting on my workdesk.

For the first card, I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller than A2, spritzed with water and sprayed with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Sprays. 
I used 2 sizes of the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Hexagons to die-cut apertures, frames and tiles and because there are 5 of each stack, you can die-cut them all in one pass.
I fixed the panel to a scrap of white card, inked the edges of each frame and tile with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and fixed them into the apertures, using Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I added strips of Washi Tape, inked the Craze stamp from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Craze and Planks with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stamped randomly on the background.
I die-cut Simon Says Stamp Love from Distress Watercolor card and Schoolhouse Red and the hearts from Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartbeat from Schoolhouse Red and fixed in place with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.
I inked the sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Tiny Text with Versamark, stamped on to a strip of Tim Holtz Idea-ology BlackOut Kraftstock, heat embossed and die-cut using Simon Says Stamp Nested Banners. 
I fixed the sentiment in place with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive and fixed the panel to an A2 Kraft card blank.
On the second card, I added washi tape to a panel of Distress Watercolor card, die-cut the words from Distress Watercolor card using Simon Says Stamp Ornate Alphabet and the hearts using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartbeat from Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red cardstock, added the sentiment and fixed to an A2 Kraft Card blank.
On the third card, I trimmed Schoolhouse Red cardstock to be slightly smaller than A2, die-cut an aperture using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartbeat Thinlits. I fixed Washi Tape on to an A2 card blank diagonally behind where the aperture would be, fixed the red panel to the card  and added an extra strip of Washi Tape. I die-cut the letters and hearts from Distress Watercolor card using Simon Says Stamp Ornate Alphabet and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartbeat Thinlits and fixed to the card with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive. I added splatters using Picket Fence Distress Paint and fixed the sentiment in place.
I finished off by adding Ranger Glossy Accents to the hearts on all 3 cards and once dry, another batch of cards is ready to go.
Have a great weekend whatever you are planning to do and I'll see you all on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is currently at the "haven't got a clue what I'm going to make" stage, so best get a wiggle on.

Toodle-oo for now
