Sweet Hearts

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Sometimes when I'm perusing Pinterest or SplitCoastStampers or as I'm hopping along a blog hop, I come upon someone's creation that just takes my breath away. Today's card is inspired by Angela Meiritz-Reid, a stamper in New Zealand. She posted this card for the Ink & Inspiration blog hop and I just fell in love with it!

Those sweet hearts, those colors, that special touch of matching sequins, the clean and simple design--all those element sing to me and inspired me to make a similar card.

Just like Angela, I stamped the striped heart from the "Heart Happiness" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst onto Whisper White Card Stock. I cut each of these out with a square Stitched Framelit Die. 

Angela used the cute Tutti-Frutti Notecards that you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration, but I don't have them yet, so I took a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of Pool Party Card Stock and embossed it with the Sparkle Embossing Folder. I adhered this onto a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock mat--I like to have just a little bit of black on a card.  I wrapped a length of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon around before adhering the assembly to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base, cut lengthwise.

Next, I adhered the hearts to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the matching Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequin to each heart--just like Angela did!

Finally, I stamped "happy birthday" from the "Fruit Basket" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White Scrap and cut it out with the Classic Label Punch. I snipped off the "to you!" from this sentiment and adhered it to the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thank you, Angela, for such an inspiring card!!!
