More Hearts

When I was getting ready to post this I realized that I am only going to be able to use one of these cards for the military cards because I forgot and used stickles and they asked us not to use any glitter, so that is a real bummer.

I have had these stickers for awhile and in real life they matched this paper perfectly but the camera doesn't see that, ugghh! They are a bit puffy so they have nice dimension on them, but not to thick for mailing.

Romance stickers from $ store
Spellbinders - classic hearts and Lace hearts dies

 I wasn't to impressed with the way the hearts stacked in this die set, they are a little off, so with this one I put the die that I used to cut out the white heart on the backside of the krafty script paper and traced around the outside of the die and hand cut it out to get the layer behind.  I tried stamping the leaves in two different colors but I think the one green may have been a little too light. The paper I used for the heart is textured so stamping on it wasn't all that easy.

GinaK - wreath builder stamp set (leaf and flower stamps)
Colorbok - Rub on sentiment
Stickles Burgundy

In this last card I just loved the gold script in this paper, so I carried that through using gold paper for my leaves die.

You can see how I used the next size up die heart in this one and they just don't frame as nice.

Impression Obsession - Layered floral dies set

I read what you wrote Connie, but I don’t see any of that. All I see are beautiful cards!

Oooh, these are pretty, too, Connie! I especially love the last with the gold. You'll know someone you can send it to. Those SB hearts were my first heart dies and I still use them a lot. True, they don't layer exactly, but I do like the look for a change of pace.

I adore these creations! Great inspiration for this time of year!

Donna Ellis said...

How lovely, Connie! They look amazing, and full of love. I'm not sure if this is still true, but glitter was worrisome for our troops if it could get loose. But stickles were acceptable because they are in glue, and there was no chance of it getting loose. However, maybe the sun could still reflect from a card's stickles - not sure. But I would ask before not sending the pretty creations. huggers, de

I am loving your hearts, my friend. I have been in a heart mood these last few days and have made several creations for my home. I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day, but this year seems to be different :)

I hope you are well and I trust your New Year is off to a great start. It was so nice visiting you. Hugs!

I love that last card. It’s stunning. Hope you’re having a wonderful new year!

Beth Norman-Roberts said...

What a shame you used stickles. It's funny they asked for no glitter. I love your cards, especially the last one. Very cute to place two flowers on your heart. Job well done Connie.

Birgit said...

They're all adorable Connie! I have a hard time getting my camera to capture the real colors on my cards too. Yours look great!
