  1. Patti J. says:

    Thanks, Darlene! Yes, I do put the cap back on quickly. I have never had that problem until I bought a new bottle. Maybe it’s just a bad batch. Thanks for replying!

  2. LOVE this design Darlene with the curved borders. Love the colors too. Loll xx

  3. Hi Darlene! What a fun, beautiful card…thanks so much for sharing, and for another great tutorial! I love your tutorials – they are so quick and easy to follow, and your voice is so sweet! I was wondering if you have any advice for keeping the Glossy Accents tip from ‘globbing up’ between uses? Thanks!

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Hi Patti, my tip doesn’t really glob up. Do you put the cap back on tightly immediately after using it? I never let mine sit open for more than a few seconds. Maybe that helps?

  4. Sharon Hayes says:

    I enjoyed your video today. The gray ink was a perfect choice, and I loved the background you made with the heart stamp. Your ideas are always good. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Robin in WA says:

    I love your card Darlene. When I went back and looked at your other cards that used the Soft Granite ink I would have been hard pressed to guess that they were the same color. Is it just the pics? You certainly do use that ink a lot! Thanks for a great card!!

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Hi Robin! Yes, I noticed the same thing. It must have something to do with the photos and lighting. I switched cameras (and rooms!) somewhere along the way. Plus I’m sure it also depends on time of day and light coming through the windows. This card seems to show the true color. Looking back on the earlier ones, they seem a little more brownish than the actual color.

    Gosh Darlene, I’m so darn late, I saw the email this morning but I wanted to wait to have some free time so I can enjoy it quietly with a cup of tea.
    I can’t live without my Stamp-a-magig, it’s always within my reach, it’s so helpful when you want to be exact about where to put multiple images on a card like yours or to add another image anywhere in the card, it always makes it perfect.
    I love the backgrounds you create, heck!!! who needs DSP!! This particular one looks beautiful with the little splash of red on that little heart.
    Thank you for sharing another great video.

    Hi Darlene!
    Thanks for sharing another AMAZING card! Your creativity always inspires me 🙂 . I love the look of the twine you added to the edges of the card stock….it defines the edges beautifully. Also, the Glossy Accents on the red heart really gives your card a gorgeous pop of color! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  8. Pam Zirbel says:

    Great card! I so need to get that masking tape!!! I saw it on the product list underneath! Thanks again for a quick cute card!

  9. Darline – such a sweet card. Loved the black, grey and red combo of colors. The little heart really stands out. Fun to watch you create this one. Thanks for the ideas.

  10. Fab card, really like the banner hugging the heart, very nice idea and one I will try soon.

  11. Fabulous!! Just the perfect accent of red. 🙂

  12. Casey Thrush says:

    So stinkin’ CUTE!! Love it. SO EASY!!

  13. Love this! I like your created background and the way you curved the top and the bottom. I also like how your banner comes out from the heart. This was adorable! Thanks for sharing!!

  14. Love it! I love my stamp a ma jig, too….I think it was you who inspired me to get one some time ago. After I got it I thought “How have I been stamping all these years without it?”…especially with wood block stamps or cling stamps you can’t see through!
    What a pretty card! Really wonderful how you made your background!
