Heart Pendant Just for You


It's Saturday and that means a new challenge from Less is More and this week it's a recipe to use buttons and ribbons.  I decided to create a pendant effect.

I started by making my heart pendant first.  The hearts stamped in Marina Mist are from the I {heart} Hearts stamp set.  I embossed some Whisper White card stock with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder then used the Full Heart Extra-Large Punch to punch out one large heart.  The teeny tiny white heart was one I already had from the two step owl punch.   I attached a small red button with sticky strip from the Brights Collection with a little silver thread through it.  I then added some Marina Mist 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.  I attached my pendant to a strip of Crumb Cake before attaching to my base card of Marina Mist.

The sentiment is from the Hostess set - Afterthoughts and is stamped in Marina Mist directly onto the card base using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

A big welcome to Jenni - thanks for choosing to follow me, it's appreciated.  Hope you visit often and see some inspiration.

Woohoo to everyone at Simply Stampin' Challenge Blog for selecting my card All sorts of flowers for their top 3 in last weeks challenge.  I'm so pleased!

Looking forward to seeing all the brill entries over at Less is more. x

The ribbon takes you eye between the hearts and sentiment really well, and the little red button makes a bright splash of colour. Love the hearts.
