High Flying Hearts

Hey Girly-Girls,

Have you seen them? You know...all those Hearts popping up in Blog Land! Well, it is the season ;) Here is the first of many to hit my blog. I have soooo many ideas, I only hope I can get them on some cardstock.

While partaking in my addiction (Yes, I'm a 5-Stepper) of reading blog after blog for hours, I saw a hot air balloon with a heart for the balloon. Immediately, I thought of Stampin' Up's Sweet Centers Stamp Set. Instead of using a Sweet Treat Cup, I used my Full Heart Punch and the Heart Mover and Shaper for hearts. How cute is this? The basket is paper pieced and the options are endless for the balloons. You could use any patterned papers. I added some paper piercing and a sentiment and here you have a Valentine's card or a simple gift card.

Hope you like it! TFL.

Stamps: Sweet Centers & Curvy Verses
Paper: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White Cardstock; Regal Rose & Sweet Always DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Pad
Accessories: Full Heart Punch, Movers & Shapers, Paper Piercer & Mat Pad, Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and Dimensionals/Pop Dots

Oh this is adorable! I'm definitely going to CASE it. What a great idea! I have never been much into hearts, but all of a sudden I'm buying the SU! heart stamps and dies - It's craziness! I really like that you used hearts instead of a treat cup, much easier for mailing! Awesome work!
