Fashionable Hearts

Oh my GOSH!!!  I'm SO excited!  I found out last night that Shelli (our CEO of Stampin' Up!) chose my Fashionable Hearts frame and card for her "Love is in the Air" Creative Challenge!  I had made it for the December Tour de Freaks…if you haven't taken that tour…you should!!!  It was pretty awesome!  You can see my winning project again HERE...


A coincidence because today's card uses some leftover hearts from the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, too!  It is certainly getting a work out in my studio!



I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock and ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Stripes Impressions Folder.  I added the 1 1/4" Daffodil Delight Striped Ribbon in the background.  I cut one of the new Labels Collection frames from Very Vanilla.  I stamped the LOVE from one of the Sale-A-Bration selections coming up soon…Outlined Occasions Stamp Set!  Yours FREE with a $50 purchase starting January 24 (or select from any of the other Sale-A-Bration products!)  Then I started adding the embossed hearts in Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight.  I added some Rhinestone Jewels for bling…and a large Red button tied with White Baker's Twine.  I think it is LOTS of fun and pretty simple…great for a class!

Congratulations! That art work used simple art work — heart punches, etc. — in a complex way. It's a stunner; well deserved!
