My Favorite Things Challenge

Well, we are so snowed in here in Southern Ontario that I was able to spend time in my stamping room!! YAY!

I cruised around SCS and found the sketch challenge from My Favorite Things. I have just started doing challenges and they are so fun! There is no pressure, if you want to do it great! if you don't - no big deal! But I'm telling is fun.....!

I used the stamp set Hearts Galore my My Favorite Things. I colored it with copics, adhered it to an oval cut out nestabilities,and then paper pierced around the scallops for a cute little effect!

I used the hearts cuttlebug folder for the pink crossways panel and then I took some sandpaper and distressed it a bit. That kind of paper has a white inside so it is really easy to do!

Patterned paper is Karen Neuburger Serenity - glitter blossom - isn't it pretty?

The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things stampset Hearts Galore, but I just stamped the last line of the "Roses are Red" poem.

I didn't want the whole thing on there and the last line seemed very appropriate!

The edges were distressed on that with the Heidi Swapp edge distresser. You know, there is no de-stressing to distressing. That little piece of paper ripped twice, so I had to re-do it again. The edge destresser is not hard to use at all, just that piece of paper was hard to distress and hold on to it at the same time!

I popped up the stamped image with dimensionals and added 3 little white heart brads from Making Memories.

Ready for Valentine's Day!!



  1. Really nice card! I like the white core showing on the embossed paper and the matching brads.
