Love Hearts


STAMPlorations is sponsoring the new challenge at Time Out where the theme is Valentine's Day with the optional twist of hearts.  To coincide with the Time Out post, the design team at STAMPlorations have got together with some inspiration for you.  Add your card to the Time Out challenge for a chance to win a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate, and leave a comment on the STAMPlorations post for a chance to win an ARTplorations stencil pack.

I stamped the Distressed Damask Background in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Pickled Raspberry, spritzed lightly and stamped onto white card.  I gradation between the Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick wasn't smooth enough so I placed my gold cord strategically to define the break more. I stamped the hearts and love in black and fussy cut them, threading them through the gold cord, then mounted the panel onto black card.

I'm entering my card into The Card Concept Love (clean and graphic?)


Fusion Two Hearts


Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Have a Heart


and I'm also linking it to Time Out Valentine's.


ETA:  I'm also adding it to Inkspirational where the theme is Ombré

and Uniko Studio - Love and Friendship

Thanks for the prompts, Sandie!

  1. Never would have guessed that the gold thread was covering up a blip in your stamping, thought it was just the design! :)
