Guest Designing at STAMPlorations February Challenge

Good morning everyone!  I am guest designing over at STAMPlorations again for their monthly challenge for February.  I know I've guested there quite a few times already but I'm always so honored to do so.  I love the stamps and Shery and the DT are all so talented and friendly.  :-). Anyways, onto to the challenge!


Stamps and Hearts?!  It's the perfect month for hearts!  I was excited to create another Valentine card but realized I don't have a heart stamp by STAMPlorations!  What to do?!  Improvise!  Take a look...





I have these post-it notes that are heart shaped so I decided to use one as a mask.  I then took my red, light pink and metallic pink gelatos and coloured my flower stamp (Eclectic Florals set by STAMPlorations) then wet the stamp with water using a paint brush.  I found that spraying with water made it too wet so the brush gave me some control over that.  I stamped all over my panel with the mask with the three colours.  Then I removed the mask and let it dry.  I attached my panel to a white card base with foam dots and added a red satin puffy heart.  I think I salvaged the puffy heart off of something years ago.  I decided to leave it with no sentiment.  I didn't think it needed one.  :-)

I hope you'll join in on the challenge over at STAMPlorations.  There's always a prize to be won and great inspiration from the DT.  Look forward to seeing you there!

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:

CAS on Sunday - add a flower or flowers.
STAMPlorations - (ongoing) Anything Goes challenge
AAA Cards - "love love love"


Fusion Card Challenge - "Heartfelt". A great inspiration photo.  I was inspired by all the hearts.


Hope you all have a lovely day and thank you so much for stopping by!
