Heart to Heart

Here's another card using this week's SOTW, Heart to Heart. Tulips are my daughter's favorite flower, and these blossoms are reminiscent of tulips, so they were just the ticket for this card. Those Resin Hearts Embellishments were colored with a Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend. Customizing embellies is so easy with Stampin' Blends!

Since this particular set doesn't have a birthday greeting, I inked up just one sentiment of the Many Messages stamp using a Stampin' Spot and Mossy Meadow ink refill. Those Stampin' Spots are so handy for this purpose, or when you're using a smaller stamp on the Stamparatus so you don't get ink everywhere.

The DSP background is one of the patterns in the free Sale-a-Bration pack called Paper Blooms. Lots of pretty patterns in that DSP!

Jan. 24 Stamp of the Week - Heart to Heart

This week's featured stamp set is Heart to Heart, a 20 piece photopolymer set and, because I was inspired by yesterday's blog hop using non-traditional Valentine colors, the card is another unique combination of colors - Sahara Sand and Misty Moonlight!

The Detailed Hearts Die that coordinates with the stamp set was used on Sahara Sand foil from Love You Always Foil Sheets (Jan-Jun mini), and I cut a few more hearts in Misty Moonlight to use as filler in some of the open hearts.

After stamping the label and greeting, I fussy cut close to the outline so I could use a Misty Moonlight punched (Story Book Label) mat behind it. I just noticed it shifted a bit after I glued it on the mat, darn it! Oh well...

SOTW - A Touch of Ink

Today is the last day of this week's SOTW, so I wanted to share two more cards before we move on to other things. The first one is such a pretty, feminine card that I'm sending to someone who needs a pick-me-up. The background is embossed with the Scripty 3D folder and Flirty Flamingo was lightly sponged over.

All the images were stamped in Crumb Cake (sponge dauber application). The flowers and hummingbird were fussy cut, but I left the leaves flat on the greeting panel, which was cut out with a Stitched So Sweetly die.

The hummingbird's eye is a small rhinestone colored with a dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend, and some Opal Rounds added a bit of shimmery color.

For the next card I rolled out the good ol' Spotlight technique. The card base was stamped with the leaves inked in Crumb Cake, as above.

The spotlighted image was stamped in Memento, then colored with Stampin' Blends. The largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies was used to cut it out, and a Basic Black mat was added before affixing it to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays, and just cracks me up! I think this would be a good birthday card for my hubby, LOL.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new SOTW! (Hint: Love is in the air!)
