During Preview week, we are featuring Stampin' Up!'s stamp sets Take it to Heart, PS I Love You and Candy Conversations!  I decided it use Take it to Heart on my card for today!



I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock.  Then I cut a piece of Attic Boutique Designer Paper (I love this floral print!) and layered it on Soft Suede cardstock.  I wrapped the Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot.  I stamped the image in Soft Suede on Whisper White, then used the new Hearts Collection Framelit Die to cut it out…wow…is that SIMPLE to line it up exactly!  I layered it on another framelit size heart cut from Calypso Coral cardstock.  I added some Pearls to the larger heart.  Then I used the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die and cut some smaller hearts from Soft Suede and Pool Party…I love how they are textured with the Embosslit!  I added Pearl in each of those hearts, too!  I stamped Dream from Lovely Thoughts in Soft Suede on Whisper White and cut into a pennant tail.


OK…now…go check out Mary Brown's FREE tutorial on Create with Connie and Mary today!  Here is a sneak peek…It's SO cute!  And…find out where that Blog Candy is today!

Oh my word this card is gorgeous! I love placing the DSP 3/4 of the way up the card stock, it reminds me of a gorgeous Empire Waist Dress! đŸ™‚
