Social Stamping -Hearts

Hello and welcome to the weekly Social Stamping Blog Hop with so many talented crafters around the world joining in.
My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we are all social distancing and many are in isolation. It is a very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who are compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity at the moment as I am a pretty social person and these past few months have been a little bit of a struggle.

I started small card classes back up again this week with groups of 3, socially distanced apart which was lovely.

So here is the next theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Hearts"

You have come from the lovely Narelle's page

I am in love with this paper so, so much I just had to use it!

I couldn't possibly cut into that gorgeous Magenta Madness Rose now could I?? 

The new Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder is a great add to our collection as I love it just as much as the subtle and it will get a working out!

The inlaid heart was actually the stitched inlay that does go with the outside border but I just carefully cut around the stitching making it another heart. It then gives a white strip around the scalloped Heart frame on the outside!

The Black and White sentiment just makes it pop!!

  4. Beautiful use of the DSP. Love how you have cut around the Rose. I think I need this Embossing Folder now too.

  5. Beautiful card Nicole and another to convince me I need that DSP! Love the careful cutting as the white border really sets this off.

  8. Gorgeous card Nicole, I love how you've layered your hearts and fussy cut around the flower, very clever.

  9. A beautiful card Nicole. Love the inlaid work on the heart and so glad you didn't cut through the gorgeous flower. I've been trying to resist that DSP, but ...
