(inside: Happy Valentin’e Day)

Did you ever see a card sample online and immediately realized that you just HAD to have the stamp used on it?  I had seen this heart stamp (from the “Stamp Your Story – Brush” set by Hero Arts) on several cards last year when I was looking for Valentine’s Day card ideas.

Hero Arts Brush

I searched high and low and could not find the stamp set anywhere.  I finally gave up my search and came up with a different idea.  This year, I started looking at ideas again, and this same heart image popped up in my search!  I resumed my search for the stamp and eventually learned (from customer service at Hero Arts) that the stamp set had been discontinued and was extremely hard to find.  Just as I was about to give up… again…, a listing popped up deep into my Google search from a person in Ireland selling her used set, on a site I had never heard of before.  (It looked like it had been posted just a few days before I was ready to stop looking.)  Right place at the right time, I guess!  I am not quite sure what it is about this stamp that I love so much, but I am sooooo happy I found it!  🙂

I repeatedly stamped the hearts with Gina K Bubblegum ink on white card stock.  The greeting was cut from Gina K bubblegum card stock using the Fiskars Teresa Collins Love Punch.  I cut several of these die cuts and glued them together for added dimension.  The white panel was crimped using my Marvy Uchida Corru-Gator Paper Crimper.

Thanks for checking out my card project!
