I always wish I could make more cards and do it faster so I could use up all my hoarded papers, stamps, and scraps. I still have out lots of heart papers and pink embellishments, but I settled on a pink and brown theme with these scraps. All of the papers used were from my scrap drawers.
I used the inspiration image above from The House that Stamps Built Repeat Impressions "What If Wednesday Challenge" and used the colors pink and brown, the heart shape and some cork, which comes from trees.
I wanted to use Kraft cardstock on this first card to go with the cork heart. I chose a scripture stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I only wanted the first two lines for the front, so I taped the bottom portion of the stamp, inked it with Versamark, removed the tape and stamped - such a simple way to mask!
I decided to make a second card while these scraps were out. I took a close-up of the wonderful texture of the cork heart.
Thank you for visiting. May God bless you as you craft your love for those you love!
