The FabFriday challenge that kicks off today is such an original sketch that it forces us to think hard about how we want to showcase it in a project. What a fun challenge! I went through three or four ideas before I landed on the fun Valentine’s Day theme of the card I finally made. The card uses a bunch of elements from the From My Heart Suite in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Here’s my card:
- Heartfelt Bundle. I love a good punch bundle – I rarely pass one up because I really like working with my punches. The Heartfelt Bundle is a PERFECT one for Valentine’s Day or any show of love (friendship, babies, weddings are all heart-appropriate). Here’s a look at the Heartfelt Bundle, which includes the Heartfelt Photopolymer stamp set and Heart Punch Pack: The arrows that build a pattern on my card are stamped with the Heartfelt stamp set and cropped with my Brother ScanNCut. Here’s a closeup, though, of the beautifully layered heart on the front of my card – the two punches work together to create one scalloped heart OR one regular heart OR a duo of both. How fun!
- From My Heart. The Flirty Flamingo and Real Red panel of From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper informed the colors on my card, the hearts AND the arrow-filled centerpiece. Such a great pack of papers! Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this LOVEly pack of Specialty Designer Series Papers:If you’d like to peruse all of the coordinating items int he From My Heart Suite of products, click on the photo below to link over to my online store:
- Pink and Red. I’m going to admit something – there’s something almost horrific about a red-and-pink combination that could go oh-so-wrong. This paper, though, is a bit compelling. Although I would like to see a third shade (a blue or green) combined in the paper, I know I can add other colors to make a project less pink-and-red. If I want to. I didn’t want to on this card. I was totally digging the pink and red together – it’s a different color palette for me. If you like this mix of Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red, please save this for future reference:
