Thankful Pink(ed) Heart



Today I’m excited to share another card with you. This post is dedicated to a special friend. She’ll know who she is by the top photo! Love you lady!


            I had a lot of fun making this card. I’ve been on a pink heart kick…..not sure why!?IMG_8718edited       But it sure fits in nicely with this week’s Muse challenge! Not as CAS as Michele’s, but the pink hearts and the die cuts remind me a bit of her lovely card.

Here’s another look at my card.
If you play at CAS(E) this Sketch! you might recognize the layout. More on that later!


I used my new mini ink blenders and some new Tim Hotlz Distress Ink for CASology’s (NBUS) to create a pink ombre background paper and then used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die to cut out the little pink hearts. I also used the cover plate to make the white layer. I made the pinked frame with some more of the pink ombre background paper cut out with an Avery Elle Pinked ELLE-ments die along with a Spellbinders Rectangle die.







I added a homemade foam heart sticker for MIM’s #197, made with some more of the ombre paper and some foam core board. I cut the hearts out with my Sizzix Framelits Hearts.

The 4 Challenges I’m playing in:

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

The funny thing is I missed the deadline for the challenge which inspired the layout for my card! Funny?! Honestly I was quite irritated with myself. Anyway……I think I need to get my act together!

Here’s the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch #105:

….the one that got away! I’m going to try again this week though. 🙂
