And the third announcement:  Tomorrow is the last day to order most of the items from the Holiday Catalog, the Holiday Treat Bundles and any of the single stamps.  So make sure that you’ve got everything that you want before it’s gone!

And now for the cards…

Today I’m sharing 3 cards that I made with the single Love Heart stamp.  It matches the Full Heart Punch and looks great when you layer it with the new Hearts a Flutter Framelits Die.  This stamp is only available for sale from Stampin’ Up through tomorrow, Jan. 2, 2103, so make sure that you order yours before it’s gone!

I started with a card base of Rose Red cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  Then I cut a panel of Whisper White to 4″x 5-1/4″ and I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack heart template to pierce the outer heart design 3 times on the Whisper White Panel.  I adhered the panel to the card base with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the Love Heart image on Whisper White Card Stock in Regal Rose, Rose Red and Pretty In Pink ink.  I punched the three hearts out with my Full Heart Punch and I adhered them in the center of the pierced hearts using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish the card, I placed a strip of 3 rhinestones on each heart.

The card on the left side uses the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate and the new Hearts a Flutter Framelits die from the 2013 Spring Catalog.
