STAMPlorations February Theme & Sketch Challenge!

Hello and happy Friday to you!
It's time for the February

Below is the sketch, and your theme this month is Stamps & Hearts,
just in time for Valentine's Day!

 I've used just the theme this time around for my card:

I started by cutting my panel from the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting die.
I then placed the Zen Hearts stencil over it and sponged some pink and purple
inks through it. The panel was dry embossed using a folder frame to leave the center of the 
panel flat. Using the Say It Big-Do What You Love stamp, I stamped in black ink then
over it with versamark, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I found some
much neglected metal heart stickers in my stash that matched perfectly with my 
color scheme. Woo Hoo! Bonus!

I hope you get a chance this month to make a project and link up at 
STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge! We'd love to see what you create.

  2. I love the look of the embossing framing the center, I did wonder when these frame folders came out if I should get some! It's a lovely card Chris!
