Valentine Hearts Card

Heart Happiness...


While I am on a streak of doing quick and easy cards, thought i'd throw a valentines card into the mix. This valentines card features the Heart Happiness stamp set (145769).
I am just loving using stamps to create my own backgrounds at the moment and there are so many fab reasons to do so. You not only can get creative with stamping a larger area, you save your DSP for other projects, and in this case, get to use most of the stamps in the set. On this particular project this also extends to decorating the inside of your card and envelope! A fab way to get the most out of a stamp set. 
I simply stamped the hearts randomly using 

So, on to the card...Here is what you will need:
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock (140490) - C6 Cardbase
Whisper White Card Stock (106549):
3" x  4 1/4"
3/4" x 3" - Banner
Scrap piece                                                               
Silver Thread (121688)
Silver Gel Pen - Mine is from Paperchase! 

Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Powder Pink and Memento Black.

Card Challenge; Global Design Project 124 CASE Challenge


Hello Stampers,

Today I am sharing my entry for the Global Design project #GDP124 CASE the Designer Challenge. To CASE a project you take the elements you like from the design and make it your own. It could be the colours, layout or stamp set.

CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit

The challenge is to CASE from the card design below; 

I wanted to focus on CASEing the wreath so pulled together a few different stamp sets, some old and some new. I also really loved the thin Crumb Cake boarder and bow, so CASED these from the design also. 
As it's that time of year, hearts was a must and they work lovely with the wreath design. Of course I had to add some sparkle on the raised hearts and with the Sale-a-bration ribbon, which unfortunately the photo does not do justice! Wink of Stella was added to all the hearts which also really set off that sparkle in the ribbon! 
This was a simple yet lovely project to make, I also made it in pinks using Powder Pink and Calypso Coral. A suitable card not just for Valentines Day, but also Weddings, Anniversaries and new arrivals too! More pics below :D

Items Used:
Jar of Love Stamp Set (141587)
Petal Palette Stamp Set (145788)
Heart Happiness Stamp Set (145769)Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack (147243)
Crumb Cake Cardstock (121685)
Whisper White Cardstock (106549)

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay
