hugs & kisses..

Hello friends!  Quick post with a card for a couple of challenges:  CASology & Dynamic Duos.   The cue word at CASology is "and".  When I thought about that word the first thing that came to mind was to use an ampersand.  So I pulled out the only set I have with an ampersand in it... Hero Art's You & Me and got to work.


Making the card made me wish that I had an ampersand die, but I don't so instead I decided to emboss a heart onto my cardstock and place all my stamping within the heart.  First take on the card stamped the ampersand using Island Indigo ink, but noticed that once I stamped the words in red parts of them didn't show up too well.  So I switched the colors and had much better results.  I added some flat sequins and some washi tape.  The sequins are a good match to the Island Indigo ink, but you can't tell that from the photo.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Jenny Bowlin washi tape; sequins
