Flowerfull Heart CCMC284

I hope you've had wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebrations and have gotten to enjoy the people and activities you love.  Now it's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary; this time it's a lovely color challenge:  Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush and Basic Black with my neutral of choice, Whisper White!

I love this new Flowerfull single stamp that is part of the Whole Lot of Love special offering available only until January 27th!  I colored the stamp with markers and stamped onto Whisper White then diecut it with a Hearts Collection Framelit that was just the perfect size!  I then handcut the Silver Glimmer Heart using the outside edge of the same Framelit as a pattern;  I just traced it on the back of the Glimmer Paper and cut out.  Viola, perfect size!

The Bermuda Bay polka dot banner paper is from the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper Collection (new Occasion Catalog).   The heat embossed "happy birthday" on a strip of Whisper White was stamped with the diagonal stripes from Gorgeous Grunge using stamped-off Strawberry Slush and accented with a Strawberry Slush Boutique Detail.  There is also a tiny border of Basic Black scallops on the bottom edge.

Stamps:  Flowerfull, Express Yourself (Hostess set)
Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers; Basic Black
Paper:  Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper,  Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush cardstocks
Accessories: Strawberry Slush Ruffled Ribbon, In Color Boutique Detail, Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Big Shot, Stripes Embossing Folder

Here again is this week's color combination from Create with Connie and Mary:

I can't believe you colored that whole stamp image by hand, wow! What a beautiful card!

Very pretty! I would never be able to get my stamp image to come out as clear as you did by the time I finished coloring it in! Love the silver sparkle layer behind the heart!
