Project #1: So Sweet Heart Note Card


This sweet 4x4 heart note card was one of the projects that I made "live" with my Luv 2 Stamp Group of demonstrators when we met via the internet this past weekend.  The card base is Whisper White, the pink piece is Pink Pirouette embossed with the new Stampin' Up! Happy Heart embossing folder and the Big Shot. I punched a 2" circle out of the embossed piece and we stamped the "so sweet" and the hearts on the white card so that they would show through the circle opening. 

I added a strip of designer paper from the Stacked with Love paper stack in the Occasions catalog and some black 1/8" tafetta ribbon to add pops of color.

A sweet little heart button from the Sweet Dreams Button package tied with Black and White Bakers Twine finishes off this sweet greeting.

 Project #2 and 3: Dotty Angles Heart Cards


My next project is something I've had in my mind for a few weeks.. I used the Stampin' Up! hearts framelits to die cut a heart in the center of two 4x4 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, then I removed the hearts and stamped one frame piece and 1 heart piece with the dots from Dotty Angles in Real Red and Calypso Coral ink.  (my current favorite happy color combo!).

As I assembled the cards, I placed the hearts back in the heart openings... one is recessed and one is raised up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Each card is stamped with the LOVE greeting from the Hello Life stamp set (pg 6 Occasions catalog) in Real Red ink.



The card still needed something so I stamped the 2 little hearts from the Hello Life set in Calypso Coral and then drew stitching lines around the edge with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker, then mounted the 4x4 white piece on a folded Real Red card.


After stamping the Dotty Angles dots on this whisper white square, I mounted it on a folded Calpyso Coral folded card using Stampin' Dimensionals, then placed the white heart back inside the opening.  Organza White RIbbon finishes off this card.


 Hope you had fun feeling the LOVE we have to share with you today!!

really cool! I am going to try it ...


I love your cards, Patty. A group I'm in makes cards for the lunch trays at our hospital's cancer center and these would be so sweet for February.


Very nice, I especially like the Dotty Angles ones!
