Monthly Tuesday Challenge February - Feb 13,2011

This is a new challenge that was on my sister Sandi's blog.  It sounded like fun so I though I would give it a try.  The challenge was to use all stampin up products, they had a suggested layout, use a group of three, and a sentiment on the front of the card.  This is what I came up with.  Let me know what you think.

This is the outside of my card.  I used Sending Love DSP  and it has lots of sparkle and glitter.  When I seen the suggestions for this card I knew that I wanted to use the heart stamp and that I wanted to hang the tiny tags on the side to look like tiny charms.  I also knew that I wanted to use the Square Lattice Textured Impression folder.  I just love what it does to designer paper and how it looks after it goes through the big shot.  In case you cannot tell the top triangle of the card plus the pretty in pink scallop circles behind the large hearts have been put through the big shot using this impressions folder.  The buttons on the top left corner are the clear heart buttons and I used the small heart on the Heart to Heart punch, which matches perfectly, on the back of each button. I tied each button with black hemp.

The top picture is of the outside of my card and the bottom is what I put on the inside.  I like this saying and thought it could be used for many different kinds of cards.  The small heart is from the Heart to Heart punch and it is the same one that I used on the back of the buttons. I cut away the bottom right hand corner to match the front to make it easier to open the card also I think it gives it a little more character.

I am excited about this card and had lots of fun making it. Hope you enjoy it just as much.  Let me know what you think.

  1. I am the first one, YIPPEE!! When we were talking about the sentiment for your card, I had no idea that the card you put in on was going to be like this. GREAT JOB. Again, you are stepping out of your comfort zone and I love this style. TFS.

  2. Woohoo!! You did the challenge!! What an awesome card, I can see why you were so excited over it. Isn't it fun having a challenge. I love your punched hearts and stamped designs. I don't have any of the heart buttons, but when making my card I was wishing I did have some. Like how you added them on stripe. Great job Kathleen!!

  3. This is a beautiful card. I just love it. I especially love how you put the hearts on a diagonal. Isn't it funny- I have that paper in my stash and could never find a way to use it that made me happy. Yours is perfect. Thanks for playing at Try Stampin' On Tuesday!
