Written Hearts and Love Notes

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

I barely posted last week, so sorry for the overload this week! =)
I have a few cards to share today for some challenges...

The first 2 cards use the same stamp set - (designed by me...Written Hearts - available at Sonshine Stamp Co.) - and dies from STAMPlorations/CUTplorations:

Card #1: 
I had some Distress Stains + water on my craft mat, so I smooshed white cardstock and let dry. I die cut a smaller panel out of it, placed it on the bigger die cut card panel and stamped the "heart" image on. 
Then, added a small punched corrugated cardboard heart.

Card #2:
I stamped "heart" on die cut panel and watercolored it. I added some splatters and a small punched corrugated cardboard heart.

Card #3:
I decorated a vase box a while ago and used the same design on this card...just glittered paper, a stamped panel (CTHM) and some paper flowers. I was inspired by the text on the photo inspiration from The Card Concept #67 (below) and my card is sorta clean Shabby Chic! =)

Card #1
1. CAS Mix Up Feb Challenge (My choice: Ink Smooshing)

2. Inspiration Destination #122: AGoes
3. Inkspirational #128

Card #2
1. House of Cards: Love Theme and/or Color Combo

2. CAS Watercolor Feb Challenge: Love

Card #3

Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Have a blessed week.
