Hearts and Love

Don't you just love love? I know I do. Apparently so does most of the world because they dedicated a whole day to it. You know what I'm talking about. Valentines day! Next to Christmas, this is my favorite holiday to make cards for. This year my oldest daughter was so sweet and bought me the Hearts & Love stamps from Inkadinkado for Christmas. Hearts, hearts and more hearts. Can you say fun? Woo hoo!!!! I decided it was time to get it all inky and this is the end result.

I stamped the heart in Red Pigment Ink on white cs and then heat embossed it with clear EP. I colored in the flowers using my black marker (SU). The sentiment is from SU's All About U set and is also stamped in Red Pigment Ink and then sprinkled with heat& stick powder, heated and then sprinkled with red glitter and heated again. The papers are from my All Occasions Mixed Media Pack (Walmart). The Vellum is dry embossed using my Paisley EF and Cuttlebug. The red dots around the scallops and chipboard are done with Red Stickles. Oh and I almost forgot. Ribbon. That is ribbon you see top and bottom of the panel. I just love the contrast of colors here, don't you?

The layout is from this week's design layout on Card Positioning Systems. One of my goals for the new year is to participate in the blog challenges I love and CPS is just one of many.

Stamps: Hearts & Love (Inkadinkado), All About U (Stampin Up)
Paper: All Occasions Mixed Media Pack
Ink: Red Pigment
Accessories: Scallop Punch, Red Stickles, Chipboard Accents, Red Glitter, Ribbon

Now that I've gotten this posted, I really need to get some work done around here. My desk looks as if a big paper & stamp eating monster threw up all over it. Seriously, I have about a 12 by 12 space that is not covered with stuff. I know I'm not the only one who does this cause I've seen some of the pictorial confessions on your blogs. I'm just not courageous enough to show pictures. LOL

Have a wonderfully creative day! Hope you get some time to stamp something. Thanks for stopping by! TTFN
