STAMPlorations Hey Love Hop & Linky Party!

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
Shery knocked it out of the park again with two new fabulous
love themed digital stamps!! You can color them up and link up and 
link up to the linky party for a chance at some great prizes!

I couldn't choose which digi to use, so I made cards using both. LOL!
Here's the first one:

For this card, I printed out two images. The first one I colored, fussy cut,
 added Nuvo Glitter Drops to the letters and let dry.
The second one I just colored around the edges of the flowers/leaves and
outlined around the image with a gray marker. The fussy cut image was
adhered over that with foam squares. It looks really cool IRL!

For my second card, I again printed the image twice, randomly
coloring one with pink/purple/teal markers, leaving some areas uncolored.
I colored the big heart on the second print then stamped the sentiment from
the Funny Kinda Love stamp set. I traced around it onto black card stock.
slightly larger, to create a matte for it. That was adhered with
foam squares also.

Now it's your turn! Just link up and/or leave a comment on all the
participating blogs for a chance at winning some great prizes!
Details are all on the STAMPlorations blog.
