Lifestyle Crafts Heart punches and a giveaway

I must have Valentine's Day cards on the brain or something!

I sure have created a lot of them for assignments lately.

For my Lifestyle Crafts February post I decided to create a couple of cards as well using the heart punches.

I really like the LC punches because they allow you to cut out so many shapes very quickly.

For these cards I used:

Lifestyle Crafts heart punches
Lifestyle Crafts Pocket Scrap Starter dies
We R Memory Keepers Inked Rose 6x6 pad
We R Memory Keepers red washi tape
We R Memory Keepers Gold Metallic Chevron Washi Tape
Sticky Thumb adhesive


I wanted to make a card base with rounded edges so I started off by using the largest of the rounded corner dies in the Pocket Scrap Starter Dies kit, using washi tape to hold the die exactly where I wanted it on my paper. 


I then cut hearts with the small heart punch and Inked Rose 6x6 paper pad


For this card I added strips of the Gold Metallic Chevron washi tape and layered hearts on top with foam adhesive


I added a shorter piece of white cardstock to the already-cut gray base and then cut thin strips of patterned paper, then trimmed the edges and added them to the bottom of my card. I added a few staples, a couple of hearts and a stamped sentiment (Amy Tangerine roller stamp from American Crafts). 

 

Have you ever tried the Lifestyle Crafts shape punches?

So hard to choose, but it's a toss up between the circles or the hearts. Thanks for the chance!

Gosh, I think the doily punches are amazing in their detail, but I think I'd use the chevron punches the most. It would work for boy or girl projects, and I find I'm using arrows a lot on my pages! Thanks for sharing your lovely cards, and thanks for the chance to win!

Hi - I loved all of them but I think it would be between the Butterfly and Pennant.
