IB158 Lots of Hearts

 Happy Thursday, peeps!  Danni has an awesome Inspired By challenge for us this it!

And I even used the optional sketch as well:

So here we go!  I went pretty literal with the colors and hearts....used lots of fun stuff too!  But I totally spaced on the "thanks" part of the challenge....please forgive me, LOL!

I started with a Naturals card base and embossed it with the Pine Planks EF, then distressed it with some Gray Granite ink.  From there, I just added hearts....lots and lots of hearts!  The two top ones are both from Lots of Heart set; the plaid one was stamped with Rococo Rose ink, then diecut with the Stitched Be Mine dies.  This particular die also cuts out a scalloped border, so I cut another one from Crumb Cake to "frame" it and added a Linen Thread bow.  A little row of hearts from the retired Sending Love set added some interest:

The silver one was stamped with an Encore silver ink pad on Brushed Silver card stock, then embossed with silver embossing powder...I added some flowers from Ornate Garden DSP:

The third heart was also cut with a die from the Be Mine dies, this time from Woodgrain paper, then embellished with silver Metallic Pearls and another flower:

The sentiment and swish is also from Sending Love, stamped in Memento Black and Rococo Rose, then fussy cut:

Finally, the last heart cut from Ornate Garden DSP and backed with some Crumb Cake that was sponged to give it a wee bit more depth:

And since I had cut out my Brushed Silver heart from a circle that was already in my stash, I used it for the inside, stamping a sentiment inside!  I know it looks blue here, but it really is silver!

Phew, that was a lot...hope you're still with me! AND I hope you'll play along with our fun collage-style challenge this week!  You can choose to use the colors, shapes, sketch...whatever you want!  Just have fun and share it with us at Inspired By!  Thanks for popping in today!

I could not wait to see what you created this week because I knew you would have creative ideas for multiple hearts, and you had gorgeous ideas for all the hearts! You amaze me my friend and your love note could always be a thank you 😉

AN absolutely stunning take on the inspiration piece! I just love the array of hearts and the gorgeous details. WOW! I am inspired to be more literal next time. And I didn't use the thank you part either. We can be guilty together.
