Guest Designer at STAMPlorations


Hi everyone.  I'm so excited today to be the guest designer for STAMPlorations February Challenge - Stamps & Hearts!




I used the smallest flourish from the Distressed Floral Swirls stamp set to create a backdrop for my red foil heart.  I drew a heart shape onto my card front in light pencil and then used my versamark stamp pad to add in the flourishes, along the penciled lines.  I coated it with gold embossing powder and heat set --- so shiny!  :) I finished the card with a sentiment from the Rosebuds set.

Thank you to Shery and the wonderful Design Team for choosing my card as one of the their top picks for December and allowing me to be a Guest Designer for this month's challenge.  It's was lots of fun!  :)

I hope you'll join in this month's fun challenge at STAMPlorations and post your "Stamps & Hearts" cards!

This is also for the February CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers ... where the challenge is embossing! :)

Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Gold embossing powder (Hero Arts); heat tool, red foil, heart punch
