i {heart} you....

Hello friends!!   Finally got a chance to make something for this week's LIM challenge.  A great sketch provided by the fabulously talented Jen!!  At the beginning of last week I found out that I was the lucky winner of a $52.00 gift certificate to My Favorite Things!!  I earned this certificate by completing 52 weeks of MFT sketch challenges over the course of 2012.   Of course I spent my certificate immediately and yesterday all my new MFT goodies arrived... YAY!    Today I got to put some of them to good use and made this little card:

 
I used the MFT/Lisa Johnson Design Homespun Hearts, Hearts and Stiches stamp sets and the matching MFT/LJD Homespun Hearts dies.  I stamped the row of hearts from Hearts and Stitches using Crumb Cake ink and then stamped the sentiment from Homespun Hearts using black ink.  The hearts were die cut and then stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I inked up two of the stamps and then stamped them off on scrap paper before stamping on the die cut hearts so that they were a shade lighter than the 3rd heart which was inked up and then stamped directly onto the 3rd heart.  The hearts were popped up with foam dimensionals and then the card was finished off with a little button and twine bow embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Dies:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Button:  DeNami Designs; Twine:  May Arts

A great LIM card, so like the button detail, while the way you have stamped the hearts in different shades of the same ink is inspired.
