Love is in the air – Sue O’Connell

Hi everyone,

Today is Sue‘s turn for another great Valentine’s project.  Check out all the great handmade embellishments she created.


What you will need:

6 x 6 ins card

Red backing papers

Red miri card

White and red  card

Spellbinder hearts die

Spellbinder  jewel flower and flourishes die

Spellbinder shapabilities fancy lattice

Cheery Lynn Doily series cathedral lace frame die

Wow Glitz Red embossing powder and Versamark ink


Distress inks, paintbrush, stamps (I used a Dylusion the right word stamp)


Step 1

Firstly die cut all the required pieces. 1 x cheery Lynn die, 4 x love hearts, 2 x flourishes, 1 x heart lattice.


Step 2

Ink up the flourishes and sprinkle red embossing powder over the top and heat set


Step 3

Take one of the smaller hearts and die cut in red miri card.  Then die cut again in white, and then use the lattice die and cut out the lattice work.  Glue the white heart over the red heart.


Step 4

Take some cosmic shimmer sprays in red and pink, and spray over your front card piece and leave to dry



Step 5

Take 4 of the die cut hearts and fold in half.  Glue one side to another half side of another heart and causing a ‘bauble’ effect.  Glue this onto a full same size heart.



Step 6

The embellishments I made with heating WOW ultra-High clear embossing powder and adding red, and pouring these into small silicone moulds and left to harden.




Step 7

Stamp the words onto red card and emboss with black WOW ebony embossing powder.  Cut out the words and glue onto the ribbon on the right hand side.



and here is the finished card:




What a great tutorial!! I hope you also liked it.


Happy Crafting,

One thought on “Love is in the air – Sue O’Connell

  1. I’m a little late catching up on blog following, but had to tell Sue how lovely this is. It’s way more work than I’d put into a card, but I’m glad someone provides such beautiful inspiration. I hope you had a special Valentine to give it to.
