Hearts a Flutter

It's Day 2 of our Guest Designer Announcements on Create with Connie and Mary!  Our designer today is using LOTS of hearts on her project for the Spring Edition 2013!  She shows off a card today with her introduction…go check out WHO it is at Create with Connie and Mary!  We know you LOVE her work (and hint…so does Stampin' Up!)


I used Hearts a Flutter on my card today to celebrate her heart theme!



Can you believe I JUST opened my package of More Amore Designer Paper!  I don't know what I was waiting for…I love the patterns in it.  AND…useful for more than Valentine's Day projects!  See that chevron pattern at the bottom…love it!  And the linky pattern in one of the hearts…love it, too!  Here are the details:

  1. The base is Pool Party cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half.
  2. I layered on 4 x 5 1/4 Very Vanilla cardstock.
  3. At the bottom, the heart pattern from More Amore DSP measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, then I cut a 1/2 x 5 1/4 strip of the chevron pattern to go on top.
  4. I hid the seam there with a piece of Sycamore Street Ribbon (Pool Party)…it's one of the new Sale-A-Bration packs coming soon!
  5. In the upper right corner, I pierced the Heart image with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.  Then punched the Full Heart from DSP.
  6. Next I stamped the Hearts A Flutter heart image with Black Stazon on Primrose Petals cardstock and cut it out with the matching Hearts a Flutter Framelits.
  7. Finally, for some major bling, I thread the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine thru a Vintage Faceted Designer Button and placed it in one of the small Soda Pop Tops…that I ran thru the Big Shot to smash.
  8. I stamped Be My Valentine from Delightful Dozen stamp set  in Pool Party ink.
