SSS Greatest of These is Love

Hi everyone,

I hope your February is off to a great start! I thought I'd pop by and share a couple of cards made using the new (and restocked) Simon Says Stamp Clipping Heart Die along with a couple of newly released sentiments (see full supply list at the end of this post).

For my first card I made the Clipping Heart image my focal point:

I die cut Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock with the Clipping Heart Die and adhered all the pieces back together on a card front. I then coloured the heart outlines and hearts themselves with a white Prismacolor pencil crayon before adding other pencil crayon colours to the hearts as well. I added some Tonic Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops and once they were dry I added a heat embossed sentiment  taken from Simon's Love Is Background Stamp with foam adhesive.

For my second card I used the Clipping Heart die to create a background:

I die cut a whole bunch of the heart outlines and adhered them to my card front. I then die cut various 6x6 papers using the same die and randomly added the hearts in place. Finally, I die cut 3 pieces of Simon's Black Cardstock using their Love Die and adhered them together to the card for some added demension.

Thanks for stopping by!

I don't think I'd have ever given a heart die of any kind a second look if it wasn't for your beautiful cards. Thanks for 2 great ideas.

Both of these cards are fabulous! I especially love that you took the sentiment for the top card off a background stamp. I would never have thought to do clever!

Thanks for sharing!

Love the look of these cards. Great idea to take the sentiment from a background stamp.
