February Challenge Reminder
by Jeanne Jachna
Hi Friends! I hope you're having a great day! I just wanted to take the time on today's post to remind you to play along with our monthly challenge. It's a great place for inspiration - you can see what your fellow crafters are making and find creative ideas for ways to use your Poppystamps Dies. And.. if you link up your own design you could win a $20 gift certificate to our Poppystamps on line store. You can link to your own blog, on line gallery or Instagram account.
This month we're looking for projects that say I love you. You can make whatever you like - a page layout, a card, tag, or even a home decor project. How you say I love you is up to you, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die).
My card starts with the Banded Hearts craft die cut from white card stock and adhered to a pink panel. Next I used card stock scraps to cut more hearts from the panel. Since all the hearts are exactly the same you can cut anywhere on the panel and the cut out hearts will fit inside any of the openings.
I love the color combination of teal and red, but I also included hearts cut from lime, and several shades of pink. The hearts are adhered inside the panel openings so this layer is very flat and smooth.
Petite Stitched Hearts cut from white card stock are adhered over the colorful panel and then topped with the Love Outline die cut from gold and white card stock.
A little gold sparkle and shine is always welcome on a card in the mail so I added some gold jewels too.
Love doesn't have to mean hearts - we'd love to see what simple expressions of love make YOU smile and sure hope you find some time to join our challenge.
