Hearts

Still playing with my new Heart Flourish stamp. And since Friendship and Valentines is the current Hero Arts Challenge this month, I decided to do double duty and make more cards for my favorite holiday.
Lisa's card from the Blog Hop was one of my favorites that day. Here is my version of it.

Supplies: CG169 Heart Flourish, CL272 All Occasions Messages, BoBunny Flamingo double dot cardstock, white, kraft, and black cardstock, Versafine Onyx Black ink, clear embossing powder, Prismacolor pencils, felt heart buttons, twine.


I've been doing so many pink cards, decided I ought to do a few red ones. This started with a computer-generated excerpt from The Secret Garden, overstamped with the Heart Flourish, heat embossed, then colored in with Prismacolor pencils. Then I addded the large heart, small heart flowers, the sentiment and a row of red pearls.

Supplies: CG169 Heart Flourish, CL301 Hugs n Hearts, K5185 Wallpaper Flowers, LL206 Take Good Care Greetings, parchment, red cardstocks, VersaFine Black Onyx, Adirondack Cranberry inks, Prismacolor pencils, CH173 Heart Accent Pearls
