Trade Secrets: Hearts Framelits and Embossed Hearts

card made sith Stampin'UP!s Outlined Occasions Sale-a-bration Stamp set and the new Adorning Accents Embossing Folder. Made by Stamp Lady KatieHere is one of my Trade cards and its really no secret how it was made. The two hearts were cut with the new nested hearts Framelit Dies. The new mini catalog has 2 sets of framelits: hearts and labels. I've already done 2 posts on projects made with the labels framelits. This one of a 3x3 gift card and this one with a designer paper layer.

These dies are very easy to work with, more on them later, but for now I'll just say I'm really glad Stampin'UP! added the Framelits to the product line.

On this card the inner heart has the word Love from a set called Outlined Occasions. This is a Sale-a-bration set which you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration.

Wondering how I got the bottom strip of hearts? They were created with a new embossing folder found in the new Mini catalog.

How about the other Dazzling Details? Did you notice the sparkle on this card? First I used our new glitter glue (called Dazzling Details) to trace the dotted line in the image. Then I sprayed the whole card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch

Ready for a bad pun?  OK, let me explain the title of today's post. This is one of my "trade" cards for Leadership convention and I just told you the "secrets" of how I made it - so now you know the "trade secrets". 

Having fun here in San Antonio. 
Happy Stamping where ever you are
