Playing along with CASEstudy--You're Loved/Love You

Hi, today I am sharing two cards that I made for CASEstudy challenge #189. I was SO EXCITED when I saw this weeks Muse. It's none other than the talented, sweet, funny Wida Miller. I adore this girl to pieces. Not only is she an amazing person she is an incredibly talented gal!!!

This was the inspiration piece they chose:
I was instantly drawn to the colors and the cutout. I made this card first:


I used my Silhouette and a nested heart file to cut out 3 hearts from cardstock scraps (it's a great way to use those bigger scraps) and then I cut a heart from the Simon Says Stamp woodgrain paper.  I layered them all together. I then die cut the "you" from a Simon Says Stamp die and inked it with Heidi Swap Teal ink. I stamped the word "love" from the Simon Says Stamp "love this" set.  I added some Lawn Fawn sequins to top it off.

I also stamped the inside of the card with a Hero Arts Sentiment:

The whole card came together really quickly.  When I was done I had 4 really pretty hearts sitting on my desk so I decided to use them to make another quick card.


This time I stitched some pretty light teal paper to a piece of white Neenah Cardstock, I then used the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts stencil and some white embossing paste to add texture. I wasn't super careful about laying it down and I love the distressed look of the left side of the card. 

I then layered all the hearts and pop dotted them. I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment on some vellum and heat embossed it and wrapped the vellum around the back and adhered it.  Super fast and simple.

That's all for today. See you soon.

Both cards are fabulous. I love the rainbow of layered die cuts on both and so smart to use the positive and negative. I love them both!
