Good Monday Morning!

Hope all had a wonderful weekend!

Today is Pink Elephant Day ---

Theme Challenge:

"L♡VE" Theme

Make a L♡VE project!

Here is my card:

STAMPS: Chevron background (Recollections); Sentiment -Friendship (Fiskars); Heart stamped on turquoise (Hero Arts) 
PAPER: White cardstock; Citrus Teal (Coredinations); Cotton Candy (Bazzil); Raspberry, Dark pink, red cardstock (stash); Black velvet specialty paper; DP-Yours Truly (Pebbles).
INK: Love Letter Red (Momento); Teal (Hampton Art); Versamark; black emboss powder.
EXTRAS: Postage stamp die (Simon Says); Arrow die (Taylored Expressions); Tipsy hearts die (Sizzix); Heart emboss folder (Darice); Woodgrain emboss folder on pink heart (Darice); embossed die heart on black velvet (Sizzix); Lip die from Love M'tache (Taylored Expressions); Black paper twine (Darice); Red heart sequins.

I used lots and lots of hearts.  I tried using hearts I have accumulated in my die stash, but wound up having to cut a few more.  My goal this year is to try and use more of my accumulated stash of dies I've cut in the past and tossed aside as well as to use more of my cardstock scraps.

I also used lots of new things too!  The background paper is a new set for me as is the stamp used on the turquoise heart, the arrow and lip dies, the postage stamp die, the heart sequins and the paper twine.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I made many new purchases this new year and having lots of fun trying them all out!

My inspiration came from my scrap stash of hearts in pink, red and turquoise and loved how they went so well with the background paper.  I had a scrap of the chevron I had stamped for something else and didn't use and again, loved how it looked with these colored hearts.  I also used the sketch at CASEthissketch to bring it all together.  I like the finished product alot!

This is so sweet! Love that fun paper :) I found it was easier to use my already-cut die cuts once I started storing them with the dies - so when I go to cut more, I see I already have some :)
