These two love-themed cards showcase the beauty of Lovely Lipstick ink (item 147140) when applied to Shimmery White Cardstock (item 101910) or Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (item 149612) using an Aqua Painter (item 103954).
 
I used the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp (item 151612) in Versamark ink (item 102283) on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Once inked, I covered the image with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), gave the page a light flick to remove excess powder, and set it with a Heat Tool (item 129053). Repeat these steps again so that you have enough images to cut and fit on your card.

I then cut six flowers from the embossed image. I adhered them to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper that I watercolor washed using an Aqua Painter and Lovely Lipstick ink. I adhered them as shown using SNAIL Adhesive (item 104332) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430), doubling up where a little more dimension was needed. I also layered the watercolor paper on Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045), then adhered it to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White Thick Cardstock (item 140272) card base.

I adhered just a few Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (item 148805) to the card for a little pop of color in the corners.
 
For the sentiment, I cut three “Forever” die cuts from Basic Black Cardstock using the Sweet Silhouette Dies (item 149541) and adhered them together using bits of Snail Adhesive. I pressed the die-cut sentiment into a Versamark Pad, covered it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130), and set it with a Heat Tool. I then adhered it to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755).

For my second card, I used the same colors and techniques and just changed the background to a heart theme.
 
First, I applied an ombre watercolor wash of Lovely Lipstick ink to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock using an Aqua Painter. I then cut it using the Detailed Hearts Die (item 151440). I carefully removed the die-cut from the die, leaving some of the hearts in place. I used a Stamping Sponge (item 141337) to add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the die-cut and adhered it to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.
 
 
Next, I used the straight-edge heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack (item 151292) to crop two hearts from my ombre-colored cardstock. I layered them together, then adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
 
I layered the Shimmery White Cardstock on Basic Black Cardstock, then adhered it to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White Thick Cardstock base.
 
I cut and assembled the sentiment just as I did with the previous card, but this time adhered it using snipped-to-size Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few scattered Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots for a final touch and pop of color.
