From the Heart

Happy New Year and Color Hues # 9

This is a new challenge blog to me, but I like the idea of just using 2 colours so decided to give it a go. The gray CS looks blue in the photo but it is a nice gray in reality. The red is from scraps left over at Christmas. Using an old wooden block stamp from Hero Arts I stamped the words onto some white CS using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide. The ink wouldn’t dry so I decided to heat emboss it and by accident used silver instead of clear powder. Figured silver is still a type of gray so kept it, die cut the circle then glued it to the gray layer. Using a SSS heart die for the swirly hearts, I hand cut that into the pieces you see, I then glued them onto the circle. From a Joy Clair sentiment set I stamped the thank you and then cut it at one edge to make it fit the circle and glued it down. Added a couple of left over hearts at the other end. Glued the layers to the white card front and added the red bling underneath so a nice thank you card is completed. I do a bit of packing and then use my craft room as a way to rest my body before doing some more. Maybe I’ll get a few cards done this way before I have to pack everything up. Still not sure of a move date but we get full possession later this week. I suspect we’ll take some stuff over slowly and live between the new place and this one for a month or two unless this one sells really quick.

    1. That die from SSS is one I use quite a bit as I like it. My original intention was to position the entire line around the circle but it wouldn’t bend enough to look good so I cut up.


  1. What a lovely Valentine card. Love the swirly heart die and how you cut it to make work. The printed background is perfect and I like the red & gray.

  2. Silver is absolutely a gray. I love how you did this card and gave it such heart. It really is a great card that makes me smile, so my statement, corny though it is, is true.

  3. This is such a sweet card! I love the text background and the sweet hearts cascading about! I know it’s a bit frustrating when the colors don’t photograph as they should. Thanks for playing along with us at Color Hues and have a lovely day!
