Jar of Love

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
It's that time of year when we have to start thinking about Valentine's Day.  I wanted to create a mostly one-layer card so I had to do a lot of making.  I started out by stenciling some hearts on the card base with a light pink.  After I did it, I thought maybe I should have masked the jar first, but I kind of like seeing the hearts "through" the jar as it makes it look even more like it is a clear jar.  Then I stamped the jar directly on the card base and created a mask to make sure my conversation hearts didn't go outside the jar.  I stamped and masked and stamped and masked and . . . . well, you get the point.  It's been a long time since I've eaten the conversation heart candies, but I remember that the works are written in red.  I didn't want the heart outlines to be red, so I stamped each heart with red ink first, and then used a black marker to color only the outlines and stamped again (using my mini MISTI, of course!) so the words would be red and the outlines black.  It was a little more time consuming, but I really like how it turned out.  I actually just got the heart images last week; it was perfect timing!  I stamped the sentiment on vellum and created my own conversation heart with a heart die and the word "love".  I finished everything off with some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

Love your card - and your patience in masking!!! The jar full of hearts does look realistic. This is the first year that I have NOT bought conversation hearts - "Yet".
