When the Focal Point Just Needs a Little Something

When a well-designed stamp is already dramatic and eye-catching, it often just needs a little something to complete it. Such is the case with the heart from Hello There by Papertrey.

I love this sentiment with a heart that's missing its middle, and by adding a small rhinestone heart (colored with Bic/Sharpies to match the SU cherry cobbler ink), your eye is drawn to the center. I chose to put the sentiment toward the bottom of the card to create a little more movement for the eye...and thus adding a bit more interest to a static design.

So as you can see, sometimes just a little something makes all the difference.

stamps: Papertrey Hello There
ink: SU cherry cobbler, Memento black
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestone heart, alcohol marker


  1. Your design and sentiment are a perfect match.

  2. You are so smart Susan, the stripes add such interest.
