Artisan Design Team Blog Hop – From My Heart Suite

Hey Everyone

Welcome to my blog and the newest Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  This month the team have created projects featuring the products in the From My Heart Suite.  I’ve created a card, mini heart gifts cards and decorated a Heart Foil Tin for the gifts cards. There may or may not be chocolates still in the Heart Foil Tins. Not sure what happens to chocolates after I photograph them. They just kind of disappear when I’m not looking…..

The card I’ve created features images from the Heartfelt Stamp Set as well as one of these sweet Heart Doilies. The piece of DSP I’ve matted with Smoky Slate Cardstock is called From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I gave my Whisper White Cardstock some background stamping with my Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. Once I set the embossing powder, I layered it over my DSP.  I added one of the Heart Doilies and looped some Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon over a strip of Smoky Slate Cardstock before adding a stamped Heart, arrow and embossed sentiment.  The From My Heart Faceted Gems were the perfect bling-y finish I needed to my card.

I was really pleased with these Heart Foil Tins when they arrived! I can see so many uses for them.  I decorated mine with the same images and doily that I used on my card.  I then took some of the fabulous Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon and adhered it around the lid of the tin.  I then tied the biggest bow I could and added it to the edge.

I would’ve loved to have baked in these fabulous Heart Foil Tins, but I’m hopeless at baking… I stuck with creating mini gift cards. To create them, I folded a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock in half and used the smaller punch from the Heart Punch Pack to cut a heart out of the folded cardstock – making sure I left the corner un-punched (is that even a word?) I then inked up the centre of the gift card with stamps from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.   I added heart doilies to the front of the gift cards and decorated them with a stamped heart and sentiment.

I hope you like what I’ve created with these products.  The next hop along the way is the super talented Nina Waldschmidt.  Click here or not the button below to take you to her blog.

  1. Love your card! The embossed layer and the addition of the Smoky Slate are fabulous touches as is the curly ribbon! The tiny heart cards are just adorable!
