ColourQ #122

This is my third post of the day.  Please scroll down to see my 12 Kits of Christmas post and my card for Cath!



Happy Tuesday, ColourQ fans!  Are you ready for a "love"ly color combo?  I couldn't resist inking up some sweet little hearts with this palette:


I stamped a grid of polka dotted hearts using a darling little stamp from DeNami Designs in Regal Rose on a white cardstock panel.

Next I cut a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed white hearts across it.  I stamped the heart one more time in Versarmark onto red cardstock and added a "love" sentiment, also from DeNami, then cut it out by hand and attached it with foam tape.

I finished off the card with some Maraschino baker's twine and one of PTI's Tiny Tags.

FYI:  This cutie measures just 4 1/4 inches square, if you're curious about the scale of the stamps.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Kraft, True Black, Pure Poppy, White)
Stamps:  DeNami Designs (Hearts Petit Fours stamp set, Heartfelt Greetings Petit Fours stamp set), Papertrey Ink (Tiny Tags)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Regal Rose), Inkadinkadoo (Black), Tsukineko (Versamark)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (tag die)
Accessories:  The Twinery (baker's twine), Filigree (embossing powder)

Won't you join us this week?  I can't wait to see your designs in the ColourQ gallery!

Thanks for stopping by again today!  Have a good one!

Goodness Christina you're really spoiling us with all these posts in one day - what a busy bee you've been! Your creativity never fails to amaze me - I actually sighed out loud (with delight!) at your Christmas projects....I'm so thankful for your kind comments on my blog but I have to say it surprises me that you visit at all, my cards just seem so inferior compared to yours!! xxx
