Perfect Postage Hearts


Another Perfect Postage creation today this time using the heart stamp.  I was in town yesterday and was inspired by the navy and red colour scheme in one of the shops.  So decided to try it out on this card. 

I love the heart stamp from Perfect Postage, it's perfect for this time of year.  I stamped it out four times in Real Red then punched it out using the Postage Stamp Punch.  The four stamps were attached to a Night of Navy panel on Dimensionals which in turn was mounted onto a Whisper White panel.  I then attached some Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon over one corner and added a Red Rhinestone Brad.  

I love that Stampin' Up! has so many products that match and co-ordinate.  No more hunting around for that perfectly matching embellishment! 


My sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment at the top left and bottom right corners.  I inked the sentiment with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker so I could just pick up the words I wanted.  I then went over them using the nib end to define the words a little more. 

Here's another formula for Sale-A-Bration

Perfect Postage £ 8.95 clear + Postage Stamp Punch £14.25 + Brights Stampin' Write Markers £ 23.95 = 1 free set 

It's so easy to earn free stamp sets during Sale-A-Bration and who doesn't like a freebie?!! 

It may be -3 outside but the sun is shining and that makes me happy.  Hope you are feeling happy too. x 

I'm going to enter this card into The Friday Mashup - "All you need is love" which for this week is an inspiration photo.  All I saw was all those gorgeous hearts.  
You can also mash it up with the following colours - Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose, Whisper White.  If I have time this week I may have another go using these gorgeous colours.

Hello Aileen,

I love the CAS quality of your card and that diagonal ribbon is a lovely touch. Your split sentiment following the corner is very artistic.

Thanks for playing along with us this week.

Cheers,
