CASE Hearts

Nothing for moths then two in a week :) Feast or famine I tell ya!   

Once I made one card I went on the hunt for any more challenges I might want to play along with while I had my mojo. My first stop was CASE Study and the inspiration card by Amber Kemp-Gerstel is gorgeous. 

This card immediately made me think of  a die I received for Christmas, which I love SO much. It's the Holiday Shapes die from Simon Says Stamp. It has 4 itty bitty hearts and 4 itty bitty stars. Itty bitty hearts I say, PERFECT!

I used the die to cut several hearts from a piece of cardstock. Once that was done I used repositional adhesive to use it as a mask. I laid it down on a white card base at a diagonal to create some interest. 

I rubbed on ripe persimmon, picked raspberry, and seedless preserves to color in my hearts. Once that was done I removed my mask and stamped my greeting which is from Hero Arts XO set. 

I rounded all four corners then in typical Kelly fashion I added stardust stickles to random hearts to finish it off.  It kind of reminds me of the patterns you would see on the side of roller skates in the 80's hehe :) 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your support. You guys are completely awesome!
