A Love Affair with the Stampin’ Up! Hearts Border Punch


Stampin up stampin' up! mary fish #hello thank you card

It has been a very busy weekend for my paper, stampers and ink!  I finished 113 swap cards for the Stampin’ Up! Founder’s Circle swap (this Thursday) along with today’s card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO363).



  • Kiss, kiss!  The Stampin’ Up! Hearts Border Punch produced in groups of four the little Strawberry Slush hearts.  I love how the pink pops against Early Espresso.

  • Mixing in a dose of Hello, Honey (Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack) with Strawberry Slush and Early Espresso was inspired by this page from a fashion catalog!

  • Quick & easy!  I used the darkest of the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers to color the pearl to match.
  • A 2″ Circle Punch was used to crop the striped image from #Hello stamp set.  Good news!  The punch is 25% off as part of the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals.   The sale ends today!

  1. Thanks, “my ink pad!” I recommend starting with the corners and then centering a heart in the middle . . . it should go pretty smoothly from there but don’t be surprised if you have to nudge a few!

  2. I love your card! Do you have any tips/tricks for how to line the punched out hearts so perfectly?! Thank you.

  3. What a sweet background using the heart border punch! Great colors as well!

  4. Carol Carriveau

    Sooo pretty – am anxiously awaiting this punch to arrive in a few ideas….plus lots of other things…lol!

  5. Angela Atkison Dormish

    This may be my all time favorite!! I love it!!

  6. Love those punched hearts, Mary! Such a fabulous card!

  7. Gorgeous, as usual, Mary! Love that color combo — you’ve inspired me! 🙂

  8. This is a great combination of this stamp set and sketch. Love those hearts and color combo, too.

  9. I really love your card today Mary! Have fun on your trip!

  10. GORGEOUS color combination Mary! Think my favorite detail is how you used the darkest Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Marker to color the pearl to match your card. FABULOUS! Have a SUPER FUN TIME at Founders Circle. (PS-Congrats on completing your Found Circle swap cards!)

  11. FYI: This is not my swap card. I can’t imagining lining up all those little hearts 113 times! I’ll share my swap card (holiday) next week! Hint . . . I used the Heart Border Punch on my swap card, too, but created a border.

  12. Hi Jane: This are the little left over hearts from when you punch the border. I just adhered them. Thanks! M

  13. Jane Jaglowski

    I love the card and the colors!!! However,… I have to ask, how in the world do you do the border punch all the way down or across the card?? You continue to amaze me!!!

  14. Have a wonderful time w/ fellow stampers and hope you do get some good R&R. Thank you for your inspiration and sharing your talent and PALS with so many of us. Congratulations on your achievements!

  15. Nancy Farrell

    WOW . . . 113 cards! How wonderful to have fun and share. These hearts are so cute. Love the colors and your inspiration. Choosing a magazine photo for inspiration definitely is going on my list. Again, have a great time!

  16. Oh, that just makes me tired thinking of finishing all those cards…Love this heart card…beautiful colors!
