Hi Stamping Friends! 
Did you happen to see the Incredible Like You Project Kit post from yesterday?  After I published it, I realized that I completely forgot to show you the adorable gift box that the finished cards can be stored inside…

Meant To Be Ombré Heart Valentine's Cards
Today I'm sharing my final card design from my Kickoff Party and it's a fun-to-make ombré heart card using the Stamparatus Hinge Technique. They also highlight the gorgeous Foil Papers from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Be sure to watch my Facebook LIVE Replay below to watch me assemble the cards and learn exactly how the Hinge Technique works on these cards!

Background Basics—The background begins with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.  I positioned the Meant To Be striped heart stamp in the corner of my Stamparatus, lining it up upside-down less than 1/4" inch from the top edge and about 3/8" from the side edge. Here's the basic set-up to give you an idea…
Ombre heart hinge
Hinge Technique—Once the heart stamp is in place, you ink it up in Rich Razzleberry ink and stamp onto the cardstock.  Then, without removing the stamp, move the Stamparatus plate down to the next hinge and, without re-inking, stamp the second heart image.  Repeat the same process all the way down the card without adding anymore ink. If you position it right at the top, you should have just enough space to stamp that last heart image.  Too Cool!

Foil Focal Point—I die-cut the intricate heart using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits and the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-Bration flyer.  The Foil Sheets pack includes four 12×12" sheets of Lovely Lipstick Foil and Grapefruit Grove Foil, and you can earn them for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!  When die-cutting, be sure to use the Precision Plate for best results. I adhered the die-cut with Liquid Multipurpose Glue sponged or dabbed onto the back.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the Forever Lovely sentiment in Rich Razzleberry onto a 2" x 3/8" strip of Whisper White.  I layered that onto a 2-1/2" x 1/2" piece of Berry Burst cardstock and fishtail cut the ends.  It's popped up with Dimensionals onto the card front.  I finished by adding a few Berry Burst Artisan Pearls floating around the heart.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Meant To Be stamp set and Be Mine Framelits together in a bundle to save 10%.

Two Cool—I wanted to try out the Grapefruit Grove Foil as well, so I started my second card with a Grapefruit Grove card base.

Hearts—This time I used Poppy Parade ink for the heart.  I think I mention in the video that it's Calypso Coral, but I really started with a darker color.  One of the hearts sure does look like Calypso Coral, though.

Heart Focal Point—I stamped a larger Meant To Be heart onto the card base in Poppy Parade ink, then die-cut a pretty Grapefruit Grove Foil scalloped & stitched heart using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.  It's adhered with Multipurpose Glue.
Finishing Touches—The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade and this time I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  It's layered on a strip of Petal Pink than I hand-trimmed to match the Classic Label shape.  I used a different color of Artisan Pearls that match perfectly!
