cards from the heart

Well, what do you know - two posts in one day. I don't expect this to happen again. :)

I thought I would share a few cards that I have made for the Cards from the Heart Card Drive. They are pretty simple, but I think they turned out kind of cute. I hope the kids like them.

I used white Neenah cardstock, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Copic Markers, and touches of the clear Wink of Stella marker on the hearts. I'm not sure of the brands of red cardstock, as I just grabbed some from my stash, and I've had a lot of it for quite some time. I used two stamp sets from Papertrey Ink: Tiny Treats Valentine and Tremendous Treats Valentine, and three Hero Arts stamp sets: Monster Fun, Many Hearts, and Valentine Sayings. Many Hearts and Valentine Sayings must not be available anymore, as I couldn't find them on Hero Arts' website to link them. Oh and I used my Tombow Stamp Runner to adhere the stamped pieces to the red cardstock. Anyway, here are the cards:

I think the airplane and the pail are my favorite. I don't know why, but I seem to be able to blend the blues better than a lot of the other colors. It's weird. I cut the Neenah cardstock to 3x4, and the red to 3.25x8.25. I rounded some of the corners with the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, and I added some Rocky Candy Distress Stickles to the frosting on the cupcake. I love how it looks like sugar. And I used a bit of black Enamel Accents on some of the eyes.

Thanks for stopping by!
