Happy Heart Day 2008

I'm thinking Happy Heart Day already and here it tis' the 21st day of December!! Well ... the truth of the matter is I am getting my swap cards made up now to send off for the Spring/Summer catalog soon to be released! Here is a sneek peak at an upcoming stamp set folks! (and some ds paper too!!) teehee!

I have included two pictures here as one does not show the colors very well and the other one shows the image better -- I need to get my lighting figured out so it's just right!! *sigh*

So anywhoo I started with a Rose Red cardstock base as I used the new Bali Breeze DS paper and I wanted those two to match - the polka dot on the bottom is the Bali Breeze.

I sponged around the edges of the entire card front using Rose Red ink to give it a softer look.

I stamped Miss Mouse on Naturals Ivory with Basic Black in and then used my Aqua Painter to color in her heart with Regal Rose ink. THEN her flower is decked out with dazzling diamonds.

I used the ticket corner punch on all four corners of her and then layered that with Old Olive cardstock.

I used two layers of ribbon - Beachfront Ribbon Originals on the bottom and the double stitched purely pomegranate ribbon on the top. What a neat look!

I used the 'happy heart day' saying by stamping that on a separate piece of Naturals Ivory card stock, ticket punching just the two sides and adding that as a 'tab' on the side of the main image.

I used stampin' dimensionals to attach Miss Mouse to the top of the ribbons after using the butterfly image out of this same stamp set to stamp a little butterfly off to the upper left hand side of where the main image would be placed - just a little extra added touch.

As always, here is the recipe:

Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Card Stock: Rose Red, Old Olive, Naturals Ivory, Bali Breeze DS Paper
Stampin’ Pads: Rose Red, Basic Black, Regal Rose
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Dazzling Diamonds, Ticket Corner Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Double Stitched Purely Pomegranate Ribbon, Ribbon Originals – Beachfront
Inspiration from: SCS: mmyung1 (card sketch) & Lauraly (ribbon layering) ~ Thanks Ladies!!

~Enjoy & TFL~
