Hearts on a String

Well, actually a ribbon. Here’s another “Love”-ly card I designed using some new products from Stampin’ Up!

It’s officially Sale-a-Bration time, so from now through the end of March, for every $50 in products you order, you’ll get to select FREE STAMPS AND ACCESSORIES! You can view the Sale-a-Bration brochure on my Stampin' Up! website. In addition to free products as a customer, there are also great benefits for hosting a workshop or becoming a demonstrator.


All Stampin’ Up! supplies: Outlines Occasions stamp set (free and exclusively Sale-a-Bration)
Very Vanilla cardstock; Everyday Enchantment DSP (also free and exclusively Sale-a-Bration)
Heart to Heart and 1 1/4” Square punches; Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz
Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack (guess what? Yep, SAB only!)
Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Calypso Coral Markers; Basic Gray and Soft Suede inks

I used a couple of nifty tips on this card. First, to make a perfectly symmetrical banner end, just punch it out using the corner of a square punch. Cool, huh? My background DSP had 2 edges that were printed with the sponged look, so I sponged on Soft Suede on the other two edges to make it consistent.

The ribbon is attached with a rolled up glue dot at each end, then I used a dot of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to anchor it in the center. That’s hidden behind a heart. The hearts are all popped out using Dimensionals. To distress the background piece, I just crunched it up a few times and ripped a few little pieces along the edge.

The problem with this card is it has so much dimension, my camera couldn’t focus on all of it! The large hearts are focused, the rest is a little blurry. Oh, well. If that’s my biggest problem today, I’ll count myself lucky!

Speaking of lucky, I think I’m pretty much recovered from my icy tumble on Monday. My vision is no longer blurry, I can turn my head from side to side, and I don’t have a headache anymore. My husband is on an Army trip until Friday and was very concerned about leaving me home alone with the hooligans. He didn’t seem reassured when I said it would probably take a few days for a blood clot to form, then break loose, and kill me. He has no sense of humor at times.

I am joking…everything is just fine here in the sticks. Seriously. Thanks to all of you who were worried about me…I really appreciate it!


  1. Well, this time I think I kinda side with the hubs--head injuries can be serious. Just 'cuz your getting better doesn't mean you should overdo it, 'kay? Just say "yes, mother" (grin).

    Banners are so much fun. When I get a chance, I want to try my hand at a rainbow banner--think I know a couple lil fellas that might like that...


  2. Yes, Mother!
    I actually cancelled my stamping night tonight and am taking it easy...once I get off the computer!
    You're right...I know a couple of hooligans that would love a rainbow banner...
