Heart-2-Heart #5.

I'm popping in to show you a little sneak peek of a new stamp set coming out on the 15th of this month called Heart-2-Heart #5! This set has some super cute triangles to make banners with and birthday sayings. This will be a $5 set -- a must have for your collection! On the first card here, I tried something unique with the banners and stamped a bunch of them onto the Heart-2-Heart #5 die, then arranged them into hexagons onto Soft Stone cardstock.
I added some smaller hexagons from the new Happy Hexagons stamp set, also coming out this month. I used Harvest Gold, Melon Berry, Canyon Clay and Soft Stone ink colors by Papertrey Ink.

Special Day card:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #5, Happy Hexagons
INK: Melon Berry, Canyon Clay, Harvest Gold, Soft Stone, True Black
PAPER: Soft Stone, Rustic White, and white cardstock, patterned paper by My Mind's Eye
DIES: Happy Hexagons and Heart-2-Heart #5
OTHER: pearl by Melissa Frances.
--------------------

This next card was super quick -- I stamped the banner string with Soft Stone ink and bows with Spring Moss ink, then the colorful pennants. Last, I repeated the sentiment with Soft Stone ink in the background.
I used Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Spring Moss and Aqua Mist inks for the pennants.
Celebrate You card:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #5
INK: Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Soft Stone, True Black
PAPER: Rustic White cardstock
DIES: none
OTHER: corner rounder.
----------------------

On the last card, I made a cut out with a new die called Limitless Layers 2.25" Square, then I placed the cut out piece over the top of the hole-- just angled it slightly for a fun look. I covered the square with white felt and then added a cute patterned paper banner over the top, securing it with brads on the sides of the card.
The inside is backed with yellow patterned paper.

Today and Every Day card:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #5
INK: Aqua Mist and Soft Stone
PAPER: Soft Stone cardstock, Aqua Mist Pattern Pack, Raspberry Fizz Pattern Pack, Melon Berry Pattern Pack, Crate Paper (floral)
DIES: Heart-2-Heart #5, Limitless Layers 2.25" Square

Danielle,
This is a great set. I love banners but really love the idea of little banners as a complement or accent to another image. Love these cards. Very creative idea to use the square cut out on top of the square die cut are.
