I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

i {heart} this!

Happy Monday,

Last night I had some late stamping time. I knew there was a new Paper Players challenge posted, so I decided to play along. Love the sketch by Nance. I pulled out two Reverse Confetti stamp sets, Arrows and Elements and Whole Lotta Dots to put this card together.

Using the large solid dots stamp, I first inked it in SU craft white ink and stamped it across the Crumb Cake card stock following the sketch. Then I inked it in SU Real Red ink and stamped over the white, slightly off to create the shadows.

I stamped some white card stock with the small dots stamp in Real Red then cut it out with the SU hearts die. The Real Red card stock was cut with the next size heart and the same as the white and popped up with dimensionals with the polka dot heart in the center.

The top of the card is pierced using the SU template and SU piercing tool.

Here's the inside. Very simple.

Stamps: Whole Lotta Dots set and Arrows and Elements set by Reverse Confetti
Paper: SU Crumb  Cake, Real Red and Whisper White card stock
Ink: SU Real Red, Craft White, Memento tuxedo black
Other: SU hearts dies, SU piercing tool and template, SU banner die, Avery Elle sequins, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

I hope your week  goes well. Thanks for looking in,
