I Paired the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs Homespun Hearts and the NEW Hearts and Stitches Stamp sets with this pretty My Minds Eye, Ruby, 6X6 papers and matted with MFT Replenisments Bubblegum, Whip Cream, Steel Grey and Paver Red Heavyweight Card Stock. For the first A2 card I used the totally gorgeous NEW Heart Doily Die-namics cut from Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock. I cut the center circle from pattern paper with the Circle STAX Die-namics. I am SO excited about the stitching stamps in the NEW Homespun Hearts and NEW Hearts and Stitches Sets. I love the look of sewing on cards but it just isn't my forte and I'm super thrilled to be able to add some stitching detail to my cards with the NEW Hearts and Stitches stamps now. So, I used the small stitching stamp from the Homespun Hearts set to added a little stitching here and there. I also stamped one of the sweet sentiments from the Homespun Hearts Stamp set on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and matted it with Bubblegum Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics. The pretty flower is cut with the NEW Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics from MFT Replenishments Felt in Bubblegum and Whip Cream....I used the NEW Rustic Hearts Die-namics to make "leaves" for my flower from Steel Grey Felt.
Here is the inside of my card...I stamped the wavy double stitched line from the NEW Hearts and Stitches Stamp set twice turning it to get a different look and then stamped in the heart flowers and stems from the set. I stamped another sweet sentiment from the Homespun Hearts Stamp Set on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the small circle tag from the Howdy Frames Die-namics.
For my second A2 card I used the NEW Heart STAX Die-namics for my main panel....LOOVVEE the NEW Heart STAX Die-namics. I cut the Framed Greetings Die-namics from Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock and stamped the looping stitches stamp in a very pale pink and then the sentiment from the NEW Homespun Hearts Stamps set. I made another beautiful flower with the NEW Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics from MFT Replinsihments Felt in Bubblegum and Whip Cream. The "leaves" are cut with with the NEW Rustic Hearts Die-namics from Steel Grey Felt. I also used the Zig Zag Stitching stamp from the NEW Hearts and Stitches Stamp set to add stitching detail around the card and along the vertical strip....I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the stitching stamps in the NEW Hearts and Stitches stamp Set...this is a must have set.
Here is the inside...it's very simple, I just stamped in the wavy double stitching stamp and stamped two different hearts from the NEW Homespun Hearts Stamp set. I added another little circle tag with a sentiment and I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment from the Homespun Hearts Stamp set on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.
