I {Heart} Hearts


Good Morning! I wanted to make sure I got this post up before the end of the contest today. Remember the lucky winner will be getting each of the projects featured this week as well as the stamp set ensemble listed in the preceding post. There's still time to leave a comment and be eligible! Now on to today's card...


One of the great things in being a Stampin Up! Demonstrator are all the resources available to you: videos, tutorials, a website and a monthly magazine (Stampin' Success) that is jammed packed with great ideas to recreate and demo. This card came from February's Stampin' Success. I tweaked it a bit as I didn't have the Love Notes that they had used. Instead I started with a Whisper White card stock base. After I folded it in half I used the Scallop Trim Border (BTW-I got this border for FREE and so can you. See the details here.) along one edge. Next I ran my SNAIL adhesive along a strip of Real Red card stock and lined it up along the edge of the unpunched side.

I then folded the card top down so that the top scalloped edge would "grab" the adhesive. This way the Real Red strip is stuck to the top inside edge. It peek-a-boos through the scallops. Isn't that simple and a WOW factor?!

I adhered a Real Red card stock square to the center of the card. Next, I stamped the trio heart stamp in the I {Heart} Hearts set 3 times. Once in Bashful Blue, Real Red and Old Olive. These were punched out  with the Heart to Heart punch. (HINT: Just need one of the hearts from this stamp? Save the rest for later. I made several projects including the milk carton where I used the others.) The punched hearts were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used a Stampin' Dimensional AND a Mini Glue Dot on a Real Red button from the Playground Designer Buttons (after tying a knot with Linen Thread) to make it sit a bit higher than the Real Red heart. This way I could overlap them a bit.


The last step was to add the sentiment "love you". Both the phrase and the heart are from the set Short & Sweet. They were stamped in Basic Brown ink.
I hope you have a wonderful day and don't forget to enter the giveaway. It closes at 6 pm (PST). Good Luck and thank you for visiting with me:)
