Here is another card I made in pinks and reds - why fight it, right?! I guess I'll just be using Valentine's colors for all my projects right up until the 14th of February! This card uses the Stampin' Up! set With All My Heart from the Occasions Mini Catalog as well as a few other accessories from that catalog. I used the Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge 38 this week, too. I love sketches to work from. Even though I usually use the sketch as a jumping off point and don't always adhere to them really closely.
I stamped the larger flower image from With All My Heart over the Pretty in Pink card base in Pretty in Pink ink and sponged the edges. (If I was re-making this card, I would use a little lighter touch on the sponging.) Then I inked the smaller flower image in Pretty in Pink ink and sponged on some Ruby Red ink with my Sponge Dauber. I stamped this repeatedly over the Whisper White main panel. After each time I stamped it, I just stamped it off really well onto my Grid Paper and then re-inked in Pretty in Pink ink and added the sponges of Ruby Red along the outside.
The pattern paper strip is Ruby Red designer series paper from the Hostess Level I Patterns Pack, a 6x6 pad of DSP. I sponged it and then layered it onto Whisper White and then Chocolate Chip cardstock. The edges of the Chocolate Chip and the Ruby Red mat of the main panel are lightly distressed with the Cutter Kit. I punched a Full Heart Punch from another piece of the Ruby Red dsp and layered a Chocolate Chip 3/4" Circle and a Small Heart Punch of Ruby Red dsp onto it. The banner sentiment is from the With All My Heart stamp set as well. I punched the ends of the banner with the large arrow from the My Way Punch.
