Sassy & Sweet Hearts – It’s Your Day

Good Monday morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Last week was crazy busy for me but I was doing two things that make me happy.

First, I helped a long-time friend with his 50th birthday celebration for his wife (another long-time friend).  I made 60 vanilla cupcake with fresh strawberry buttercream frosting, topped with a fresh strawberry slice; then enough potato salad and coleslaw to feed well over 30 people.  Lol!  When the picnic finished Saturday afternoon I was pooped.  Shew!

Second, Sunday I jumped into project designing.  Yay!  I created a revised version of my Christmas in July design for a Christmas mail swap.  I am so thankful that I only need to make 20 of these.  The pieces are all cut and ready to assemble.  THEN, I started designing for another two swaps using items from the upcoming new 2016 Holiday Catalog.  Sweet!!!  I completed three designs featuring one stamp set now I just need to design three more featuring a second stamp set.  I make 10 of each design, for a total of 30 for each set.

Well, now to the fun stuff, today’s post is a clean and simple Sassy & Sweet”hearts” design that was inspired by these cute hearts on came across on Pinterest.

BASE:  To keep the hearts front and center I went with a vellum base in a long & narrow size (3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). After placing the front band with the Sassy & Sweet “hearts” I placed a Flirty Flamingo band (a 1/4″ wider) inside centered beneath the front band.

FOCAL POINT:  The Sassy & Sweet Framelits sweet hearts along with the sweet colors just make this card sweet as well as sparkly fun.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer sweethearts layered then placed onto a textured Whisper White (vintage) band.  I popped the largest hearts with Dimensionals as well as the smallest.  I had envisioned a four square arrangement with hearts in each square similar to my inspiration.  While I was working out the color layers this layout fell into place and I went “this makes me happy”.  [Happy chair dance ensued.  Lol!]

SENTIMENT:  Keeping with the clean & simple look I used the “It’s your day” from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set.  I stamped it with VersaMark ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  [TIP:  Definitely make sure to use your Embossing Buddy before stamping with your ink.]

I hope you enjoy this sweetheart of a card. Thank you for popping by today.  AND have a great Monday!
