With All My Heart

Hello my inky friends! The amazing Claire is our hostess today at The Paper Players, and she has a fun color challenge for us: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Real Red. I thought this combo would be perfect for a Valentine's Day card.

I purchased a few clearance items from Heidi Swapp at Michael's last year, and this is the first time I am inking them up. I love the big bold sentiment and the shape of the heart stencil, and I think the arrow background is kind of fun too. This card is a little outside of my normal clean style with all it's layers and elements, but I think it works. At least I hope so!


The Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenges both have a theme of "Something New" this week, and as I am using some new products for the first time I am entering them both. Also new is the Teal Washi Tape which I got from the Simon clearance rack for 25 cents!

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: With All My Heart Stamp & Stencil, Arrow Background, Totally Love You Stamp & Stencil (Heidi Swapp)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Words of Love (Carta Bella), Stacked with Love (SU)
