Every Heart

Hi friends!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's contest time over at Mojo Monday!  Play along this week for a chance to win a Verve stamp set of your choosing.  The more entries we have, the more prizes we have, so that's the perfect excuse to stamp, stamp, stamp all week, right?!  {grin}


This week's sketch is based on this card I made for last week's release.  I've paired the brand new Every Heart plain jane with one of the hearts from Chevron Love, stamped on a Rounded Rectangle die cut, then layered onto the Rounded Scalloped Frame Die (which I embossed in white using the coordinating stamp in Making a Statement).  The blushing bride layer was embossed with a candy cane stripe, but wasn't quite the look I wanted, so I then embossed it again using a Tim Holtz snowflakes folder and rubbed some jasmine white Mix'd Media Inx on it.  I love the result... lightly textured stripes with snowflakes that pop!  I embellished with some ribbon from the Truly Madly Deeply Collection and finished off with some glittery white jingle bells and liquid pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous start to December!

  8. I love everything about your card! Your pearl pen drops are perfect. How do you do that? I'm going to try the double embossed background.
