Incredible Heart

Hello everyone,

This week I received an order from the Paper Garden Projects store and it was filled with some incredible Impression Obsession stamps. I started playing around with them and put together this amazing card. It actually works for two challenges; this week's Cute Card Thursday was an anything goes challenge and the Frosted Designs challenge which was to celebrate life.

The card base is Recollections. The image is Impression Obsession Garden Heart Two. The image was stamped in VersaFine Black Onyx and heat embossed with Stampin' Up clear embossing powder after which it was coloured with Sakura Gold Shadow pens. It is highlighted with Platinum Stickles. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Live Like You Mean It on Very Vanilla and layered on a piece of gold of unknown origin from the scrap bin. The embellishments are Crafts from the dollar store.

I just love this card. It is very elegant and simple. While I'm using it as a celebration card, it could be used for just about anything. The image certainly didn't disappoint me. This new batch of stamps is really going to force me to get colouring which I hope will improve with practise.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
