A Happy Heart

Sometimes as a demo, I feel I rush the seasons along.  It isn't even Christmas yet, and I'm already thinking and designing for Valentine's Day.  For magazine publications it is even worse!  Right now, they are sending out calls for late summer and back to school items!  But, I just couldn't wait any longer to pull out my Valentine stamps!

Stampin' Up!'s set, A Happy Heart, is one of my favorite sets of all time.  I love the little Tic Tac Toe stamp in it, the I heart you, and the large word heart!  So versatile!  I knew the minute I saw Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch TSSC101 challenge that I would use this set.

I started with stamping the word heart in Rose Red Craft Ink on Whisper White card stock.  I let it dry, then cut it out.  I pierced the "O" and added a Clear Rhinestone Brad.  Next, I cut a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 square of Bride Designer Paper and placed it on a 3 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper in the pink check pattern, then added the heart with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I stamped the Feb 14 image randomly with Rose Red ink on the Rose Red card stock, only along the top half.  I adhered everything to the base Whisper White cardstock.  Finally, I stamped I Heart You in Rose Red Craft Ink, let it dry, then punched it with the Large Oval Punch.  I added some Rose Red ink along the edge with my sponge dauber.  Pretty simple card, but I like it!

Don't forget…the Holiday Extravaganza Sale is over tomorrow!  Great time to stock up on dies and decor element vinyls while they are on sale!  Click here for more information and to save $20 on the Big Shot Machine!  What a great Christmas gift for you or someone you love!

I'd like to ask everyone for a little prayer today as I undergo a small medical procedure…pray that they find nothing abnormal in the test results.  Thanks!

Merry Christmas!
