FCCB Challenge #97-Love is in the Air

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps.with Passion!!


Happy Monday all my crafty friends!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Today is another Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. For this challenges, we are to use a heart on our projects.

We have an awesome sponsor this week which is K.Andrew Designs. Some of the design team members were given a wonderful stamp set for this challenge. I was given the "I HEART You" stamp set. This is such a great set for Valentines Day cards-I just love it! Thanks so much:)




Here is my project:




My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 which I embossed one side using a new embossing heart folder set by Sizzix called~ Love set. I then cut a black layer at 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 which I embossed with the polka dots folder. I cut the hearts at 2 1/2 and 2 1/4 from the Sweethearts cartridge. I inked the edges and then stamped the cute heart image from the I HEART You stamp set. I also stamped the little sentiments and pop dotted them in the center for a little dimension. I cut a border to run along the black layer using a Martha Stewart heart punch.  I tied a bow with striped ribbon from SU along with adding a  prima flower, button and twine to finish it up. I actually used all scraps from my bin for this card AND used up some older SU ribbon along with the black prima flower I have had laying around for a long time. Yeah, feels good to use up some scraps:)

Be sure to pop over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out all the details and to see what the other Design Team Members created for this awesome challenge.  I am sure you will be inspired!!!  I hope you come join us in this fun challenge-can't wait to see what you create:)
