Take it to Heart and Control Freaks Swap

I am very excited that I was recently asked to participate in a swap with the Control Freaks, a wonderful group of talented artists. The swap featured products from the Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs, and this is the card that I created to swap. It features two new stamps sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog, Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts.

The beautiful heart shaped image with the bird inside was stamped on Naturals White Card Stock and colored with Ink Pads and an Aqua Painter. Naturals White or Ivory Card Stock is a good alternative to Watercolor Paper as it is larger and much more affordable, yet is still sturdy enough to be watercolored. After the image was stamped, it was cut out with the new Hearts Framelits Dies, a new product I just love.
Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Take it to Heart, Loving Thoughts
Card Stock: Naturals White, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red
Designer Series Paper: Twitterpated
Ink: Black Stazon, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede
