A Valentine's Bee

Valentines is just around the corner so it is time for me to get busy making some cards.  This one was made for the current DRS Designs Challenge which is called "Heart to Heart" - use hearts on your card in some way (paper, dies, stamps, etc.).  I used the new Small Silhouette Heart on my card,, but you have to look closely.  I stamped it in ink mixed with water on the front panel so it is kind of blurred.  On the bottom panel, I stamped it in some spun sugar distress ink so the hearts are very light. 


I also used the new Hugs 4-in-1 Wording stamp for my sentiment and the Happy Bee image. I made my background using the smooshing with acetate technique (you can check out Laura Bassen's video here - warning: her technique is light years better than mine plus you will be addicted to this technique after trying it!). 

Hope your week is going great!

  10. This is a lovely card with the background being so different with all your different hearts and dots. I can clearing see your hearts and I'm not sure anyone's could be any nicer than yours. Love your addition of the gold cording with the butterfly. Enjoy the day.
