Sweet Hearts

Pink and Busy, but I like it anyway! The Funky Heart Design is from Impression Obsession...The stamp is actually a large heart with the funky little design inside, but I trimmed them smaller using my Heart nesties. The hearts were stamped on White and then I airbrushed with a pink Copic. And again-- my hoarding of pearls is subsiding as I plunked a few dozen on this card! The largest heart I used my Japanese Screw Punch to make holes and threaded variegated embroidery floss for the "rope" look, I actually went through each hole twice, using a big fat embroidery needle--so not so tedious. The pearls come on long adhesive strips so they are easy to place a row and match it to the edge of the heart. The little tag edge was made using my all time favorite edge punch - the Martha Stewart Lace Doiley, love that thing. I added some red Spica to the red portion of the hearts for a little sparkle. The hearts are popped so they are all at different heights. After the generous application of pearls a few little ribbons here and there. Done. Finished card size is 5 3/4" square.

  4. Beautiful card, Jenny. That is a lot of pearls, your stock must be almost depleted, lol. I don't think it is too busy, I think it is fabulous, as usual. Love the idea of using the punch on the end of the tag. Will have to try that one.
