I {Heart} Hearts!

So when our Design Team stamps and goodies came this time I just fell in love! I love hearts anything really! I have a gazillion necklaces from Brighton whose focus is on hearts, I have heart rocks, pictures and like to think I have a big heart too! LOL! Anyway, I couldn't stop making cards and "stuff" with my goodies! Here are two more cards I'd like to share with you;

I LOVE these hearts on a string and, yep it's called "Heart Strings"! They're so "country" yet, couldn't you see them as a baby card...oooh next card for me, make them into a baby card! I used SU chocolate chip for the base, Staz-On Timber Brown ink, colored pencils and, of course, more of that Cosmo Cricket "Chemistry" paper. I also added some of the "dew drops" to the edge of one. I just LOVE this card! I also got the layout from a very neat blog "From Where I Stamp" I try hard to not copy a whole card but use it as a jumping off point. With this one, I had to copy the whole thing! I love it! I hope you have time to check her blog out too! She's very creative!



This one just came from "outta nowhere"! I have a ton of eyelets because I'm an embellishment junky and, unfortunately, a hoarder too! I realized in this move if there's one thing I need to do that is use my embellishments! I used some Making Memories brown eyelets and a thin brown ribbon to create a corset of sorts on here! I used a bigger brown ribbon for the bow. I used my SU scallop border punch for the decorative edges. Now here's where I got that neat heart from, I used this stamp , Party Hearts stamped out in Staz-On Timber Brown ink and cut out the center heart! I then paperpieced a tiny heart for the center from the same paper, love that Chemistry paper, I used for the corset and the letters. I colored the edges in with colored pencils. I was tickled at how cute it came out!



Well I hope you liked my cards! I'm off to get ready for work now!

Until next time....

Yes--we need a therapy group to help us work on letting our embellishments go! :-)

Great detail with the stitching!
