You warm my heart

I finally made another card! I've been spending time in my studio, but doing stuff like mounting stamps on cling foam and updating my inventory book. (note to not get behind again!) Although it is satisfying to be making progress, I am getting sick of that project, so I had to take a break and do some fun stamping.

I was blog hopping and stumbled across a blog called My Craftroom Creations. She has some wonderful cards! This one caught my eye with the border of kraft-on-kraft hearts. I decided to case her card, but discovered that my heart punch was too big. I saw the rickrack border die on my desk and my card just evolved from there. After cutting out two kraft strips, I noticed the offset strip that was left in between and immediately saw how cool it looked with the regular pieces. Happy circumstance!

Warm Happiness is one of my favorite Papertrey Ink sets, so it's about time I used it for a card. I adore Heather Nichols' sweet images! The rest of the card is pretty basic. I just die cut and stamped the mug, embossed the white swirls, and cut a tiny heart from red cardstock. The mug stripes were stamped with VersaMark ink. The sentiment comes from another stamp set. Perfect, isn't it? :) I'm very happy with this card!

Stamps: Warm Happiness, My Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink); VersaMark
Paper: Kraft, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Misc: Rickrack Border die, Warm Happiness die (Papertrey Ink); white embossing powder (Filigree); pop-dots
