Creative With Stamps; Hearts

Ohhh! I love the challenge this month at Creative With Stamps! Be sure to click on over for inspiration and to join the challenge.

This month's challenge is HEART.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, now is a perfect time to create a card using a heart (or hearts in my case). I made a heart stencil using the Feelin' Groovy cricut cartridge and some ugly scrapbooking paper. (I keep ugly paper for this reason.) I gathered all my heart stamps and stamped a variety of hearts within the stencil. After that, I used the same ink and a sponge to color inside the heart leaving it a little lighter in the middle.

Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink. I made two cards using this technique. One I kept pretty basic and the other added Color Silk in black, sparkle and whip cream. Then I mounted them on pink cardstock before mounting on the card base.

Here are my two cards and some close ups:

As you can see from the photos, the "plain" card, I also outlined the heart and added some Nuvo drops.

I hope you join us at Creative With Stamps (CWS) and link up a card. If nothing else, check out what the Design Team has made and be inspired!
