Smooshy Heart

Would you believe I have a UFO box for holiday cards?

LOL, it seems I have one for everything.
And the contents keep growing no matter how many I use!

I even gave Jack some of the hearts and he got tired of gluing well before they were gone!

These have a home anyway.

The intricate die cut heart is from Serendipity and cut with my Big Shot.

The under heart is from a piece done with the smoosh technique.

I can't say for sure what colors I used but I think it was
Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry with some Frost White Shimmer paint.

Edited to add I'm entering this in the 
It's my 3rd entry there.

I {heart} you
I used my manual Big Shot to die cut the heart and emboss the background.

Red + Pink
We can use either or both.

All we need to do here is use a snippet or snippets on a creation.
These hearts and the ribbon were snippets.

All You Need is Love
using at least 1 Serendipity stamp or die.


So glad you could stop by today.

Ny UFO box is filling up fast too! Crazy that we can't seem to use all our stuff - and yet make more.
Glad you found this one though! So pretty and elegant looking.

Gorgeous card. I love this embossing folder and the heart die is fabulous.

Just one question.... it's probably obvious..... but what is a UFO box? xx

It's such a beautiful valentine, Bonnie. The die is great and the smooshed colors are so pretty.

That's a beautiful heart die, makes a very classy card (or should that be Klassy)

So "smooshy", LOVE it.

MaryH said...

Bonnie, I don't need to know about another die company!!!! That said, this is a gorgeous & so intricately beautiful card. I hope it was easy to cut, cause it looks just stunning over that lovely smoosh pink background. Of course the mesh embossing just adds so much more dimension & texture and let the heart take centerstage. Truly lovely. TFS & Hugs

this is a pretty cas card Bonnie-I like the smoosh technique behind the hear- the captcha took me 4 attempts before I could leave a comment

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This is absolutely lovely! I really like how you created so much visual interest with the textures you created. I also like how you paired those fabulous swirls in the heart with the more linear background. The ribbon and pearls give it just the right touch of elegance. You did a beautiful job on this and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
