Hearts, Hearts and More Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends and readers!  This month's challenge, CAS Love and Friendship, is perfect for the newly released ruffled hearts and Molten Magic technique. 
Here's what you'll need:
LG747 Ruffled Hearts
LS1004, You & Me
DPP Pearlescent Paste
Metallic F/X colors of your choice
DCP Metallic Gold Paste
DPK Palette Knife
LM2010 Paste Spreader
Removable tape
Small paint brush or Q-tip

Here's what to do:
Tape top of stencil to craft mat.  Lift stencil and slip card stock underneath.  Apply paste with paste spreader.   Remove card stock and set aside.  Repeat for second heart.  Set stencil, palette knife and paste spreader in a pan of water.  Sprinkle Metallic F/X over hearts by dipping paint brush or Q-tip into mica powder and gentle tapping over pasted image.  You may have to do this several times to get the coverage you want.  Heat the paste with a heat tool until bubbly.  Set aside to cool.

Tape You & Me stencil to card stock and apply Metallic Gold paste.  Remove stencil and set pasted image aside to dry.   Wash and dry stencils, palette knife and paste spreader.

Cut out hearts and trim sentiment to desired size.  Assemble on patterned paper and coordinating mat and you're done!  Ready to give to that special someone.

There's still plenty of time to submit your project for this month's CAS (clean and simple) Love and Friendship challenge, so get busy!  Link your crafty goodness using Mr. Linky on the Dream it Up! blog or send a photo of your project to Lynell at or, if after February 13, to Louise Healy at If you need a few more ideas or a bit more inspiration, check out out the rest of the Dream Team blogs, starting with Dreamweaver's blog, DREAM it UP!
