Simon Says......Have a Heart

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Wednesdays mean a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog, and this week our theme is "Have a Heart" - make a Valentine or use a heart on your creation.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

The Design Team and Guest Designer Sem are all using Simon Says exclusive dies or stamps this week; we'd love to see some of yours, too, but it's not necessary to enter the challenge, as long as you follow our theme.  Here's what I made this week:

SSS Feb 6 Have a Heart

I really had fun with this one!  I used my newest SSS die called String of Hearts, cutting out several different red prints from a doodlebug designs Valentine pad from last year, and "tied" it between 2 Small Forest Trees.  Then I used the smallest hearts from Holiday Shapes to make my leaves, using both solid and dotted green papers.  I stamped the sentiment from Just a Love Note using Hero Arts Red Royal mid-tone ink, and stamped my faux-stitched "grass" using Hero Arts Grass chalk ink.

I originally stopped at that point, but felt that I needed something else, and then I remembered my new Studio Calico Birds wood veneer shapes.........I rubbed them right onto my barn door distress ink, let them dry a bit, then popped them onto my trees.

Generous Heidi has given us another $50.00 gift voucher for the random  winner of this challenge, to spend on whatever your heart desires!  I can't wait to see what you make us this week!
