Just Add Hearts

The second Just Add Ink Challenge is up and running.  With Valentines Day not very far away the theme of this Challenge is called Just Add Hearts.  Here is the Card I did as my Design Team Entry.


I used Vellum for the petals – stamped and embossed them, then coloured them and cut them out.  They curled up a bit – which was great because it created a lovely dimension to the card.

My idea was that Hearts were created by petals that were being blown off the flower.   When I had finished the card I had a conversation with my little girl that went like this……

  • Me – What does this look like?
  • S – A broken flower.
  • Me – And what else?
  • S – Hearts.

I was then happy that it was what I was trying to do.  

This Challenge runs through till Wednesday 3rd February – you can do a card, scrapbook page or a 3D project.  So visit Just Add Ink to upload your project.

    Love the softness of the petals done on the vellum – so pretty.

    This is gorgeous!! I just keep thinking, “he loves me, he loves me not”!!

    LOL – that’s the funniest conversation! I actually over-read into it – to me the petals reminded me of “he loves me, he loves me not” and the uncertainty of relationships, but the fact that they joined up into hearts made me think of how even though there’s uncertainty, the heart (or love) is a powerful thing… hmmm.

    But, what you really want to know is that I love it! I think it’s a gorgeous card and really shows the versatility of the set!

    Love this card, so fresh and cute! Guess I need to brush off that stamp set and get it off the shelf!
