DIY Sparkly, Glossy Hearts...


Happy Monday! I hope your start to the week is a good one. It's certainly been a sunny one here - I'm not complaining!

I'm popping in today with a card featuring lots of Simon Says Stamp goodness. The background was created by repeatedly stamping one of the scribble flowers from the Scribble Flowers stamp set. I love how they make a cool, modern frame. A frame that perfectly fits a masked sentiment from the SSS set, Garden Flowers. Perfect-o-mondo!


To draw your eye to the focal point and add a bit more interest I framed the sentiment further by tying a loopy bow with long tails (my favourite kind of bow) and some DIY sparkle hearts.


The hearts were created by collecting hearts from punching a Martha Stewart heart border punch on some Doll Pink SSS cardstock and then covering it with a good ol' Wink of Stella along with a glopping of Glossy Accents. For the larger heart, I stamped the heart from Clearly Besotted Stamps' Once Upon a Time stamp set (Also available at SSS) on Doll Pink cardstock, cut it out and flipped it over. It too had the same sparkle and glossy treatment. The hardest part is waiting for those Glossy Accents to dry!

Well that's all from me today. Time to hit the gym after a long day at work. Am I crazy? Probably. But I know my body will thank me for it. Just maybe not today....! Ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

oh, you had me a glossy red hearts, Duchess! Is this the original MS hearts punch from a certain blog candy so many years ago! EEK! If it is, I just remember how I was worried it wouldn't get used and maybe you'd pass it on :) Those hearts are just adorable! Hope the new job is as wonderful as you imagined :) ox

Everything about this card is sheer delight; the subtle background 'scribbles', the loopy bow, the gorgeous hearts and the perfect sentiment. Smitten!!
