Shades of Love

Today's card was inspired by a number of shabby chic, vintage, collage-style cards that line up bits of ephemera and stitch them to paper.

See? Proof that you CAN get inspiration from a completely different style and make it your own!!!!

'Cause there isn't anything collage-y, vintage, or shabby chic about this crisp, CAS, clean card!

Hearts punched from four different shades of vellum (white, light pink, bright pink, and red) are glued with a single line of glue down the middle to a white base. Then, I stamped the stitch line in soft granite and added the word "love" in four shades from Memento Angel Pink to Hero Arts Red Royal.

Hearts stitched together by love.

*happy sigh*

stamps: SU everyday expressions (?), Papertrey Faux Ribbon
ink: Hero Arts soft granite, soft blossom, red royal; Memento angel pink and rose bud
paper: Papertrey white, various vellums
accessories: heart punch, glue pen, stamp positioner (to get that wood-mounted love stamp straight every time!)


  1. Oh oh oh....I am in LOVE with this!

  2. Love this simple yet [perfectly lined up of course] AWESOME card. Great shades of vellum

  3. Stamping a stitched line - never thought of that!! Thanks! I do love the stitched look, but never got the nerve to try it.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
