Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Wedding Day Heart Card

For my first project I thought I would try combining the Enclosed: Heart with a Cover Plate die.  I selected the Garden Gild plate and it ended up being a beautiful combination!


It was easy to create since there is a plain heart die included with the Enclosed: Heart die set.  After I cut the Garden Gild plate from white, I just selected the area I wanted to appear inside the heart and ran it through with the heart die.  Then it was just a matter of coloring it and adhering it behind the separate Love frame included.


I layered the frame four times to help create some texture and dimension.  I really love this look and want to try out the concept with other Enclosed sets and additional Cover Plate designs!


The thin sentiment strip was created with the previously released Keep It Simple: Wedding set.

With Love Card

Next I have another Enclosed: Heart project, this time using the plain heart and some of the gorgeous coordinating stamps.


I cut the heart from white cardstock and then stamped the large polka-dotted "Love" using Lovely Lady ink.  I was then able to add some of the cute little floral arrangements that Dawn included in the set.


This Aqua Mist Chicken Scratch gingham made the perfect background!

Ombre Love Card

For my next project I used Heather's new XOXO set.  I just love the brushstroke style of these and I could hardly wait to try out this ombre technique with them.


I die-cut the "love" words and hearts from white cardstock. Then used sponges to add color to the bottom half of each cut, using a rainbow of colors.


I love the subtle texture crated by layering and overlapping the various elements.


Everything was mounted onto Soft Stone cardstock to allow the white areas to shine through.

Conversation Hearts Card

Using many of the same colors, I used these over-sized conversation hearts, also in XOXO, to make my own festive background paper.  I just love all the colors, totally makes me smile!


I die-cut the "be mine" sentiment three times from white and layered them on top of one another for dimension.  I love the simplicity of this and will definitely be making more!
