Happy Hearts...

Papertrey Ink has a new stamp set coming out on Dec. 15th called Happy Hearts, and the design team is hosting a little blog hop to show you lots of fun projects with it!

First, I used the new Cover Plate: Hearts to die cut this piece from white cardstock.

Next, I stamped a few of the hearts and placed them back in the cut outs. The card front is backed with white cardstock. A sentiment from the set is stamped in the blank area. 

To make the arrow, I used a new die set called Cupid's Arrow and cut one from chipboard, then inked it with gray ink. Twine is wrapped around it and another heart placed on top! I chose a darker heart to be my focal point.

One Heart is Simply Not Enough card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Happy Hearts
INK: Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold, True Black, Sweet Blush. Other: Hero Arts Soft Granite
PAPER: white
DIES: Cover Plate: Hearts, Cupid's Arrow
OTHER: twine, chipboard.

My next card uses some of the extra hearts that were cut out. I also die cut the LOVE from a new die called Framed Love. 

I folded a piece of vellum and made a pocket.

Then I adhered the Love die cut frame over the top and added heart confetti inside the pocket.

Here's the finished result. 

For the color palette, I was inspired by the Crate Paper decorative pin to use navy and teal with hints of pink and red and gold.

Both of your cards are gorgeous Danielle! Such pretty colour palettes. Love the way you replaced only some of the hearts on the first card and love that cute little vellum pocket you created for the second.

These are stunning, Danielle! I was thinking I could just get the cover plate, but now I'm wondering if I need the stamp set, too....

All of your samples are great, and if I HAD to pick one, I would pick the cover plate card. I like the arrow on it as an embellishment.
