I found these metallic covered cardboard hearts for very little money somewhere. No recollection of where, sorry. But you could draw a heart on chipboard, cut it out and cover it with paper and achieve the same affect. I stamped each heart with black StazOn ink which will stamp and stay on most all surfaces, especially a metallic background such as was on these purchased hearts. On this canvas, I used an Eiffel Tower, Fleur de Lis, leaves and a scallop background stamp. I used my QuicKutz Silhouette to cut the names from white vinyl. Use a Crop-a-dile to cut a hanging hole in the top center of the heart. Glue some cording to the outer edge of the heart. Cut another hole into the center bottom of the heart and hang a tassel. Tie a small, sheer green ribbon to the tassel. Fold a white flower in half and adhere to the center bottom of the heart over the hole through which you have attached the tassel. Layer a ribbon flower over a paper flower and adhere to the white flower. Adhere the white name to the desired location on the canvas. Run a ribbon through the top and you are ready to hang the canvas.
Starts, guitars, musical notes, a grid, and a cowboy on horseback stamps were used to stamp the background on this canvas. Adhere the vinyl name in the desired location on the canvas. Attach a t!m Holtz metal piece with a brad to the center bottom. Glue a black and metallic trim to the outside of the contours of the heart. Use silver Liquid Pearls to 'dot' the outer edge of the heart. Take care to space the dots evenly. Let dry thoroughly. Run a ribbon through an opening in the center top of the heart cut with a Crop-a-dile.
Stamp flowers and butterflies on the background. Adhere the vinyl name as desired. Glue lace and pearl beads around the outer edge of the heart. Adhere the vinyl name to the heart canvas as desired. Die cut a butterfly out of metal. Distress butterfly with t!m Holtz alcohol inks. Dot edge of butterfly with silver Liquid Pearls. Adhere the butterfly with a pop dot to the desired location on the canvas. Adhere a floral embellishment to the center bottom of the heart with a glue dot. Run a ribbon through a hole created with a Crop-a-dile in the center top.
A flourish stamp and heart were the only two stamps used to embellish the top of this heart canvas. Adhere vinyl name in desired location on heart canvas. Glue gold ric-rac and glass beads around the outer edge of the heart. Adhere small flowers at random on the heart. Adhere a large gold heart on the center bottom. Tuck a small folded ribbon under the heart so that it hangs down with a bit of a tail. Dot each flower center with gold glitter glue. Tie a sheer ribbon through a hole created by a Crop-a-dile in the center top.
And angel and flourish are the two stamps used to decorate this heart canvas. Adhere the vinyl name in desired location on heart canvas. Attach Swarovski crystals as desired on the canvas. Glue fancy gathered lace to outer edge of heart. Glue a sheer flower to bottom of heart. Run a heart bedecked red ribbon through a hole in the center top.
Texas stamps cover the heart canvas. Use a variety stamps. Adhere vinyl name to the heart canvas. Glue both a black and a white cording to the outer edge of the heart.

Keys and old world stamps adorn the background of this heart canvas. Adhere the vinyl name as desired on the heart canvas. Glue black ric-rac to outer edge of heart. Glue red cording over the ricrac.

I hang my hearts on the curtains in the dining room. Simply attach with a straight pin. If your curtains do not cover the rod completely, you could hang them on the rod itself. Or pin to the molding at the top of a window. Happy Valentines! It's going to be here faster than we know.
