A Way with Words

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Shirley has chosen: You Have a Way With Words (make words the focus of your creation).  Here's my card for your inspiration:
I started by making my patterned panel by stamping the music background stamp with a medium gray (I stamped off on scrap paper first so it wouldn't overwhelm), then I stamped the heart multiple times to create the pattern. I heat embossed the beginning of the sentiment with white embossing powder on a scrap of black card stock.  Then I stamped the "you" with a heart in the center of the "o" onto a scrap of white card stock and fussy cut it out.  Quick, simple and fun, I think!  I hope you will be able to play along with us this month.  Remember you have the entire month to play along with the weekly challenges.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Sheet Music", "You Cling Set" (I used the "you", "i love" and the heart), and "Heart Stencil"

Awesome - and you fussy cut the YOU - a bit of work there. Love how you created the background paper on the left.

Esther Asbury said...

Such a cool card -- love the music/heart panel you created! Looks like a couple of us broke up our sentiments this time -- such a fun and useful technique! Love the way you embellished your "YOU" with the heart in the center of the "o."

I really like this design. Your stamping of the music notes and hearts is a great combo. And I like the quirkiness of the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations this month!

I love the design of this great card, from the heart panel on the left, to that cute little flag with the funky fonts and the big YOU with a tiny heart inside! Great design and a wonderful card!

Juliet A said...

I'm hard-pressed to identify the element I like best - the stamped background piece is so perfect, it could be sold commercially, and the fussy-cut "you" is even more amazing with the little heart stamped inside. This is a great entry for the HeARTful Stamping Challenge!
