Bless Your Heart!

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!

Today I have a real quick CAS card to share with you.  I created this card using this month's AWESOME release from Our Daily Bread designs.  I used the Flower Heart (the largest heart) and Clean Heart (tiny heart) to stamp the flower hearts with a spectrum ColorBox pigment ink pad,  and then die cut them with the gorgeous ODBD Custom Ornate Heart dies.  I also cut a white lacey heart with  the same die set  I cut the largest heart with the scalloped large die from the set and popped up each layer.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder for my white bg, and added a border from the new Beautiful Borders Die set.  Everything is mounted on  a Regal Rose base.  I also had this pretty spectrum sheer ribbon in my stash, and cut the part in the same color family for my little banner.  I hand cut the banner with the sentiment from Bless your Heart.  The only embellishments are the crystals at the bottom.  Easy, quick and fun!  I do love that there are so many sentiments in these sets that are NOT just for valentines day!  There are Scriptures, sweet sentiments and I think I will use these a lot!  

I am entering this in the following challenges:
ODBD Shining the Light Challenge - use things that start with the letters L-O-V-E
L-Lacey border, O- Ornate Heart Dies, V-Violet tones in ink and ribbon, Valentine Heart E- Embossing

  • Artistic Inspirations -  Anything Goes / Hearts, Ooh La La Creations -  Use a Heart, Crafty Boots - BINGO* (pink, stamp and die cut used here)

      Today's Blessing:

      The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in Truth!  Ps 145:18

      Just gorgeous, Grace! The Clean Heart looks fabulous stamped in a Kaleidacolor pad…I always forget about using those, but this is the perfect stamp for it! Love the CAS design! Hugs!
