The Love You Much stamp set offers a triple heart stamp which coordinates with the Heart to Heart Punch. This made quick work in creating the hearts for my bouquet. I doodled around the edges and created quick stems with a Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Marker. The hearts were applied with Stampin' Dimensionals for a little 3-D.
The bouquet panel was matted on Chocolate Chip card stock and I added a snippet of Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla Ribbon. TIP: I used my favorite method, the Stay Put Bow (click here for video tutorial). However, my Crop-a-dile couldn't reach where I wanted the bow placed. I grabbed a hammer and my large Anywhere Hole Punch, both from the Stampin' Up! Crafter's Tool Kit. Mission accomplished.
The layout is inspired by today's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge
(SC208), The red panel peeking from behind is from Candy Lane Designer Series. This paper series offers sweet patterns in Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette. The Chocolate Chip card base is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at the top. Another darling zigzag pattern from Candy Lane is layered on top.
The "hugs and kisses" stamp is from Love You Much, too. I stamped it on Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette card stock. My Paper Snips fashioned an element from each that were adhered and "elevated" using Stampin' Dimensionals.
TIP: Being able to pop out three hearts at once using the Heart to Heart Punch is delightful. However, it leaves a lovely pattern behind, pretty when tucked inside this card for a little contrast and interest.
So what do you think of my sneak peeks so far? More to come. Please leave me a comment at the end of this post. I would love to hear your thoughts!
