For this card I stamped a background panel using a background stamp My Creative Time. I die cut the water colored panel using MFT's Love dies and stamped the sentiment from My Creative Time's 100% Sweetness onto the heart.
I cut two more hearts from the scraps and made these two little milk carton candy favors. So fun!
This next card uses Top Dog Dies, Lacy Heart Doily.
I wanted to try to use one of the water colored panels as more of a background so this is what I ended up with. I wasn't sure in the beginning what direction to go in because using the panel as a background, it seemed very busy to me. I started by stamping a silhouette image from Sweet N' Sassy stamps but didn't like where it was headed so I brightened it up with a die cut flower given to me from my pal Marcia. I colored that up using Zig Clean Color pens. The primitive heart is another leftover from the card above (can't have any waste!). I die cut the sentiment twice from PTI's Still Life Summer and added some black Wink of Stella, which not surprisingly, doesn't show up in the photo. I can never seem to capture WOS with my ipad camera.
Here's another card I made using more of the hearts punched from the rest of that piece of background.
I'll be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
