CCMC283 Flowerfull Heart

Wow!  Hard to believe that Christmas is over already!  Doesn't the time go by fast leading up to Christmas?  I really don't know where the entire month of December went!  But, it was wonderful to be with family and friends.

We have a FUN sketch challenge for you to try this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Grab your stamps and play along!

Here is my interpretation using the single stamp, Flowerful Heart, from the Whole Lot of Love promotion!

www.inkspiredtreasures.com

Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Real Red, folded in half.
  2. A layer of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White was placed on top.
  3. Next I used 1/2 sheet of the Fresh Prints Designer Paper Stack.  I love that you can get two cards from one page AND it is double sided!
  4. I added a 1 x 3 piece of coordinating Real Red Striped DSP in the same package to the lower right corner, cut with a flag end.
  5. On top of that I stamped Happy Valentine's Day from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Real Red on Whisper White and cut a flag end.
  6. The Flowerfull Heart was stamped with Real Red on Whisper White and cut with the Heart Framelit. 
  7. I cut two of the smallest Heart Framelits from Red Glimmer Paper to tuck under the Flowerful Heart.
  8. I added a Coastal Cabana In Color Boutique Button to the heart with some White Bakers Twine tied in a bow under it.

Flowerfull Heart

How about a new picture of my grandson, Carter?  He turned six months old last week!  Hard to believe it has gone by SO fast!  I'm amazed at how he has grown and has such a personality now!

I've had Valentines on the brain since we are featuring a Create with Connie and Mary Valentine Special MINI Collection!  All three of the A Whole Lot of Love stamp sets have been sitting on my desk, along with the Fresh Prints Designer Paper Pack.  For this card, I pulled out both the Flowerfull Heart single stamp and the greeting from Follow My Heart stamp set.

I think the Fresh Prints Designer Paper is the STAR of this card!  Love the color combination of Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Crumb Cake…so "fresh" looking!  Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Real Red, folded in half.
  2. Another layer of 4 x 5 1/4 Crumb Caked was pl
  3. I added a 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 panel of Fresh Prints DSP across the bottom, then added a 1" x 5 1/4 strip of the reverse side across it.
  4. I stamped the True Love image from Follow My Heart stamp set in Real Red on the Crumb Cake layer.
  5. The Flowerfull Heart image was stamped with Coastal Cabana on Whisper White and cut with the Heart Framelit.  I placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. I tied a double bow from Linen Thread, then adhered a Simply Clay flower I watercolored with Real Red Marker to the center. 

It's amazing what that little embellishment touch of Linen Thread and Simply Clay make on the card!
