I {Heart} Hearts

Hey, there everyone! I'm actually on time today for the Utah Diva's International sketch challenge...go me!

So, today's sketch is a pretty simple, square sketch but I didn't want to use squares so I decided to play a little with the shapes of the main images. It is exciting for me to show you this card (and the one on Thursday) as today I'm using a set, paper, and accessories from the Occasions Mini Catalog!

The very fun stamped hearts are from the new set called I {Heart} Hearts and this set I got clear mounted! That is right...if you haven't heard yet Stampin' Up! is making their new stamps in your choice of wood mounted or stamps ready for clear mounting (not clear stamps)! Not only does purchasing your sets ready for clear mounting less expensive but it also makes for more efficient stamping, I think. There is less mounting time, less to store, and more time to stamp...yay!

The new accessories that I've used are...a new Emobsslits die called Scalloped Heart of Hearts...it is the very vanilla heart on the card (the other hearts are from the I{Heart} Hearts set). Isn't it just lovely?! The little heart that says love was punched out with the new Small Heart punch and it is just adorable! Also, from the Occasions Mini is the patterned paper called Sending Love as well as Chocolate Chip and Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon.

Now, I know after that card you are dying to see everything that the Occasions mini has for you so head on over to my right side bar and click on the photo of the catalog (the one with the bird) and check it out for yourself!

I hope you'll check out the sketch HERE and participate when you have time this week
