Uniko Studio Blog Hop – Accent Essentials-Arrows Revisited

Hello and welcome to Uniko Studio Blog Hop!
If you are coming from Erika’s Blog then you are on the right track.
For this blog hop we are revisiting Accent Essentials – Arrows.
 Here is the picture of the stamp set.
I have combined this Arrows stamp set with the new Always and Forever stamp set to make my card.
Love you Card
I masked and white heat embossed the arrows crisscross. Then sponged three different pinks from distress inks called Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry in an ombre and finally sponged Fired Brick on the edges. Then spattered some plain water. I then gold heat embossed the Love You heart shape on gold card stock and cut it out to 3D layer it at the center of the arrows. Then stamped the sentiment in black on the sides. Finally accents with gold sequins. Here is a close up!
Love you Card
I then combined Accent Essential Arrows with  All Occassion Sentiment #5 to make my second card. 
Always Be Mine card
This is a CAS style card. I stamped the double arrow stamp with various colours towards the left side of the cardfront. Then I added two strips of black card stock. Stamped the big bold sentiment on a strip of the  cardstock, trimmed the edge at an angle and adhered using foam squares. Accented with heart shape enamel dots. 
Your next hop is to Nicki’s Blog to see her gorgeous card.
