Follow your Heart with Outline Stamps

Hello !

I'm happily participating in another Outlines Challenge !   This week's theme is "Follow your Heart".   You can find all the great Design Team samples and details here at Outline's Blog.

I'm also entering this card into this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges, "Lots and Lots of Layers & Embellies" C4C121, the DT samples and details are here at Crazy 4 Challenges Blog

I used Outline's I-696 Layered Heart stamp along with a sentiment from the F-1049 Posy Greeting Centers to create this card.


I stamped the heart and embossed with Silver on 3 different pages from the 6x6 Designer Paper pad from My Mind's Eye, Lots & Found - Blush.  It's the same pad that I used for Outline's "Love is in the Air Challenge"  2 weeks ago.     I cut & layered the heart as shown, popped up a couple of the layers and used the newsprint sheet from the same pad as a mat.     A narrow piece of the paper that was cut off the end of the mat was turned over and used across the card at the top.   The sentiment was also layered.    

I  added Snickerdoodle & Taffy Smooch inks on some of the little flower patterns.   The tiny applicator makes it easy !    I always enjoy lots of cutting (maybe because it's a bit meditative?), but then came the most fun ..... adding lots rhinestone bling and cream Viva Pearls on the little circles in the images.   I find a lot of Outline stamps are wonderful for layering if you enjoy creating dimension on images and then the little patterns just beg for extra colour or bling !    So much fun ! :)   


Thanks for stopping by for a look,  I appreciate your visit !
Have a great day !
