Ok, this was a fun card to do. It was great to do a card with some Hearts - I love hearts, collect them... it started with my wedding - I was married on Valentines day. When I opened up the Cute Card Challenge Blog, I was expecting Christmas, New Years, Red and Green something to do with the season. But was thrilled and actually excited to sit down and do a card for it. Hearts!
I started by finding an image with hearts... I have quite a few, but this one just made me smile. This is "Walking in the Rain Umbrella" from Alota Rubber Stamps. Is she cute or what? I colored with my Copics and white gel pen. For my pattern papers I used Imaginations patterns that I thought complimented the colors in the image. (I got so excited about the hearts, I forgot to pick the pattern paper before I colored... oops... then I had to go through and find some that matched, but these work I think) I inked the edges of the two patterns with a dark pink ink. Matted the image with the same card stock as the base, then stitched the edges of both with my gel pen. I ran a piece of light blue ribbon across to pull the color of the sky and the small blue flowers in the pattern paper.
Now how excited did I get when I was digging through my thousand of flowers and found those two pink dot flowers? They match the paper perfect! I stacked with a larger and smaller pink Prima flowers, jewelry spacers and pink mini brads. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and is perfect for the image. Then just for some added fun and heart I punched a large Heart with my Fiskar's Squeeze punch, and inked the edge with the dark pink. So happy with all the hearts and pink! Hope they like it at Cute Card Challenge -
So what do you have planned for this weekend? Me, I have a class on Saturday to teach, then I am hoping to work on my Christmas Cards and a few gifts on Sunday. So the plans have a crafty good weekend, we will see if that is actually happens - HA! Hope you have a great one planned -
