From the Heart

I was so inspired by my friend Marie, her post yesterday just sent me to the stamp table to complete my own creation! She does such wonderful projects and really has her heart in it!
So, here is what I used: Stamps: Love you much stamp set (available with the new catalog; set of 6 -$25.95), Holidays & Wishes (109431; set of 6 - $17.95), Holiday Blitz (109353; set of 28 - $36.95) Paper: Rose Red: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (finished size), Chocolate Chip: 1 3/4" x 5 1/2", Confetti White: 4" x 5" and scraps of confetti white Ink: Riding hood red Classic Stamp Pad, Chocolate Chip Classic Stamp Pad, and Pink Pirouette Classic Stamp Pad Stampin’ Up! Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Soft Sublte Brads, corner round punch, Stampin dimensionals, build a brad, 1/2" circle punch, 1/16" circle punch, 5/8" vanilla grossgrain ribbon, blender pens, scoring tool on my paper cutter :0), and paper snips.

First I stamped two hearts on the scrap of confetti and punched them with the 1/2" circle and assembled the build a brads. I then took the 4" x 5" confetti and on a diagonal scored every 1/2" both ways to create my grid. I stamped two hearts from Love you much one on confetti, and one on ridding hood red scraps. Using my paper snips I cut both out for a layered look. Picking up ink from the stamp pads, I added some color to the heart. Punched 3 holes with the 1/16" circle and inserted 3 pink brads. I then layered the hearts using stampin dimensionals. I then layered the grid confetti on my rose red base, then tied a bow with the vanilla grossgrain around the choc. chip cs and inserted the build a brads, and mounted it. I stamped my verse "from the heart" in rose red and added my cut out heart with stampin dimensionals as well.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it. I have three more to post over the next couple days :0) Have a great day!
