Golden Hearts

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Our niece is graduating today and it looks like it should be a beautiful day! Although rain is predicted later on. The Junior College World Series starts today, too! While we don't go to all the games, we do like to attend a few. And my parents get here tomorrow! Yeah!!! I went mountain biking for the first time in over 14 years! WOW! I forgot how much I love it! I rented a bike as I don't have one (my other one just got too old and needed way too many repairs). I am renting a different one tonight to see which one I might like better. Now I just need to get myself back into riding shape!! Nick is going to be on the high school mountain biking racing team this next fall. I am really looking forward to that! It's been a busy summer so far! And he's only been out of school since Wednesday afternoon - lol!!

Today's card was sort of an experiment. I am trying to find different ways to use this stamp set. And I think this definitely falls into the different category - lol! I took my color coach and spread out all the blues. The only pain was having to clean in between each ink color.

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Adhere a strip of gold foil card stock to card base
  • On a piece of Very Vanilla, stamp the image from Work of Art in the various blue inks: Soft Sky, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Night of Navy
  • Stamp the heart image using gold Encore ink
  • Adhere stamped panel to card with dimensionals
  • Make a tag from a piece of vellum
  • Adhere two strips of Watercolor Wonder washi tape to top of tag and punch a hole
  • Stamp the greeting using black StazOn ink
  • Tie a piece of gold twine through the tag then adhere tag to card using dimensionals
  • Punch a heart from gold foil card stock using the itty bitty accents punch and adhere to card
There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
