Hearts are always a favorite so when I saw this month's release I knew it was going to be good :). Both of my projects are also in celebration of recent Featured Stampers on SCS. More details about that are noted below.
This first card was created based on inspiration from a very special friend on SCS, whom I've had the honor and pleasure of visiting with on a few occasions. I missed her special day but I know she understands - I'm just a tad bit late to her party :). Her name is Roberta aka Stampin' Nana on SCS - and she is one of the sweetest and most talented stampers I know. Here is a link to her beautiful creation: Circles Everywhere

To make this I started with the die-cut card base and layers, embossing the back layer before adhering everything together. Then I randomly stamped the larger single Heart image, die-cut the smaller hearts, and outlined everything using a Golf Leaf Pen.
The hearts were sort-of sculpted using a med-large stylus, to give them shape and depth. The last step was to mount all the hearts - after playing with the design a bit I just went for it - using tall round foam dots and extra glue. This card was so fun - I hope it inspires you in some way!!
Thank you Roberta for your wonderful inspiration - I love you my friend!!!
My next card uses the same New stamp and dies - and is also for a Featured Stamper on SCS, only a more recent one!! This card is in celebration of last week's FS - Tina DeLong aka Garden Diva. Her gallery is such an inspiration and I enjoyed looking at all her amazing designs. Here is a link to her beautiful creation Valentine Hugs
Tina's card was the perfect inspiration for me. I kept to the monochromatic look and the same shape, used a similar ribbon/tag placement, also used gingham, but again the creative process took me in a different direction with respect to some of the background elements.
