I created this card back in November with the Simon Says Stamp November Card kit.  I started by stamping the heart from Music to my Ears (stamp set included in kit) in Midnight Black VersaMagic Ink on white cardstock (from kit). After the ink dried, I cut out the heart.

Two strips of BasicGrey Serenade patterned paper were adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock (included in kit). The border strip from the set was stamped underneath the paper strips and a sentiment on top. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half.

Doodlebug black twine was tied to a BasicGrey button (both included in kit) . The button was adhered to the heart and the heart was adhered to the left hand side of the card. Want2Scrap rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

For my card I chose The roses from A Year in Flowers 2. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. I had received the new Copic colors on Saturday and had to use them right away to color my roses (Flowers: RV10, RV52 new, RV55, RV66    Leaves: G40, G43 new, G46 new).

A piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Blush Patterned Paper was cut and embossed with a Classic Heart Nestabilities. The inside of the heart was sponged with Antique Linen and the heart was stitched to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a  Classic Scalloped Heart. The rose image was cut out and adhered with with dimensionals to the right hand side of the hearts. Part of a Finesse Pearl Swirl was adhered to the left side of the heart.

A sentiment from the stamp set April Showers was stamped on a piece of cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. The inner part of the tag was sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and part of the rose image was stamped over the left hand side of the tag. The sentiment layer was adhered partly under the flower and over the heart.

Two 4 1/8″ wide strips of Blush Paper were adhered to a 4 1/8″ square of the same paper pack. The edges of the paper were sanded before the layers were stitched to a 4 3/8″ square of Kraft cardstock. Ivory Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers vertically before the heart and sentiment were adhered to the card front with dimensionals. Everything was adhered to the card base; white cardstock cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Three pearls on the lower right corner finish off the card.

I haven’t played along the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge. When I saw yesterday’s sketch I just had to play. A heart inside a circle? LOVE that!

I cut and embossed a heart with a Classic Heart Nestabilities dies out of Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends paper. It was sanded and adhered to a scalloped heart cut and embossed out of  Neenah Solar White cardstock with a Classic Scalloped Heart die.

A 2″ wide strip of Odds & Ends paper was adhered to another piece of the same paper pack. The paper was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Circle Nestabilities die. The edges of the paper were sanded and the layers were stitched to a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been hand cut into a slightly larger circle. White Crochet Lace was adhered to the left hand side of the vertical strip before the layers were adhered to the Kraft cardstock card base, cut and embossed with a Grand Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die.

The heart layers were adhered to the left hand side of the card. A sentiment from You’re Lovely was stamped in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. The inner part of the sentiment was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink and two small flowers of that set were stamped in the same color for added texture.

The sentiment was adhered to the lower left of the image and three small Zva Creative Flowers were adhered to the lower left of the sentiment. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! I am helping my husband put the finishing touches on painting our living room. It looks so much better now then it did when he started.

Today Timeless Tuesday hostess is Tammy. She challenged us to be inspired by this photo.

For my card I knew I wanted to use Pink and Orange as the main colors with a bit of grey from the planter. I started by stamping the heart from the soon to be released From the Heart stamp set in Embossing Ink on a piece of Echo Park Victoria Garden Patterned Paper. The heart was cut and embossed with a Classic Heart Nestabilities die and adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Classic Scalloped Heart die.

Next I stamped the scroll image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock. A sentiment was stamped inside the scroll before it was colored with Copic Markers (YR00, YR01, YR02, YR04) and cut out. The scroll was adhered to the center of the heart with dimensionals.

The card base is a piece of 4 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ white cardstock folded in half. The card front was embossed with the Brocade Embossing Folder and the bottom corners were rounded. The edges of a 1 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ strip of Victoria Gardens Paper were stitched before the paper was adhered to the left hand side of the card front. White organdy Ribbon was tied around the front and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered to the upper right and lower left of the card base. The heart was adhered over the ribbon and a button was tied on over the bow with dimensionals.
