It's raining HEARTS
I've never really been one to be fond of hearts. But I thought this heart stamp was pretty cute and it was only $1. I used VersaMark to emboss the heart - first with what I thought would be a pretty, hot pink....but then I switched to Bridal. Still not the contrast I was hoping for but I went with it. The DP is from ???? and the ribbon is just some that I dug out.
As I was assembling these little 3x3 cards, I was struck with this idea: took me a few days to get it down and I fussed with it some, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Guess I'll save it for V-DAY next year. I embossed the umbrella portion with clear EP so it looks really shiny. And I ended up cutting that coat out THREE times - the first time, I cut off her boobs - YIKES! then the second time I didn't stamp very well and cut off part of her hand! YIKES again! You can tell from this photo that I made the panel for this card and then attached it to a white card. How many of ya'll do that? It seems like everywhere I look on blogland, that people make the actual card base from colored CS. Kim Hughes mentioned on her blog today that sometimes she just makes fronts and then attaches them to cards.
Have a Terrific Thursday!
