#1030 – Lots of Hearts

Hello and welcome! It’s the third Thursday of the month and we have a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. The optional topping this time is chosen by JoAnn to be ‘Red, White plus One color‘.

And here’s what I made –

I wanted to use the Whole Hearted Cover Plate from Neat & Tangled. It’s been in my stash for so long, but I don’t remember if I have every used it!! I thought this was the perfect opportunity! I wanted to die cut a red cardstock and have some other color underneath, but actually did the reverse in the end.

I started with a yupo paper panel, on which I used shades of red alcohol ink and came up with some random pattern. I then used a normal white cardstock panel, stamped the Hero Arts Graph stamp on it (it moved a bit when I stamped, but I thought it looked anyway), then die cut the stamped panel using the Whole Hearted Cover Plate. I then adhered this directly over the yupo panel, which I then adhered to the card base.

For the sentiment, I chose bright yellow ink, and few stamps combined from Winnie & Walter Sketchy Thoughts and Waffle Flower Monochrome and Congrats stamps. I then fussy cut them and then foam mounted them on the card.

And that’s my card! Step over to the Seize the Birthday blog to checkout what our Surprise Party Guest Stephanie Lanzalotto and the rest of the DT has created for JoAnn’s challenge!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. That’s a wonderful cover plate. I don’t think I have seen it before. I love all the little heart windows and your AI background looks fabulous peaking through the hearts. The addition of the pops of yellow are the perfect finishing touch xx

  2. I always enjoy seeing what you come up with, Ashwini. This card is no exception. I love your design. I’ve not seen that cover plate as I recall, and I really love the way you used it. Yellow was the perfect color to add. Love the speech bubbles! Thanks for a great run at Seize The Birthday!

  3. Ashwini, You have totally inspired me with this card! I have a cover plate similar to this one and I never use it as the hearts never stay standing up and I am never happy with the design. I am totally pinning this for inspiration. Awesome card!

  4. That black and white grid panel looks stunning over the red hearts, Ashwini, and I love the yellow speech bubbles!
