I {Heart} Hearts!

Ooh, I am just lovin' this new I {Heart} Hearts set from the Occasion Mini Catalog!  There are eight stamps in it with twelve heart images of various shapes and designs.    I used two of the stamps on my card today plus a greeting from the new Well Scripted set which is in a beautiful flowing font.
This card also features that gorgeous Melon Mambo color of cardstock, ink and Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon... yummo!!  The Whisper White background is deeply embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder and Big Shot.  The dotted heart outline stamp was stamped twice on Whisper White in Basic Black then the sentiment was stamped into the center of one and another filagree heart was stamped into the other.  The hearts were then cut out and layered onto more Melon Mambo.  A fine line of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (which you can't see in the photo, sadly) is around the edge of each heart.  Tiny ties of 1/4" Black and White Gingham ribbon top off each heart for the final touch. 

Inside the card I added a layer of white and stamped two more of the Melon Mambo hearts on opposite corners to carry the design through.

Your purchase of this stamp set will also provide a $2. donation to the Red Cross for the Haitian people.  See more information below.


Haitian Disaster Relief

 

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope.  You can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.  

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you purchase will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.


In the past, when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck Indonesia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia, Stampin′ Up! customers and demonstrators have stepped forward and showed their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. This time is no different. Please do everything you can to lend a hand to the people of Haiti.  Thank you!

Thanks for dropping by for a visit today!
