A Basket of Hearts



This was not the card I intended to post today. I made another one over the weekend and I just loved it. But, it can wait until another day. I played in the CAS challenge today on Splitcoaststampers . It was a color challenge with colors from Design Seeds and you were to use two or more of the colors.

I cut out the hearts from PTI Heart Prints set and then stamped with the images from the same set. The sentiment is from that set, also. The tiny red hearts are from a Martha Stewart heart punch.

The basket is Marianne Designs Craftables 1208-Flower Basket

Simple is good.

I'll enter my card into the challenge at Addicted to CAS #30 where the code word is NEW. My sentiment is new. I bought it with the dies and stamps I received this month. I have used those but not the sentiment.

This does NOT look simple to me! I'm lovin' that pretty basket - it's a new die to me. Love these PTI hearts too. Gotta check on that. So very pretty against the crisp white bkground, and this must be for somebody really special. Warmer today, but heard the S word perhaps? tomorrow - a possibility. Guess it's time for it. Stay warm, Hugs & TFS

What a fantastic basket of hearts, Benzi! Love how you cut them out individually and layered them into the basket. Beautifully done against that white background.

I'm sure you can hear me squealing and clapping my hands all the way from here, Brenda! I feel like a child looking at a basket full of candy; this is simply delicious in every way!! Hugs, Darnell

Colleen Dietrich said...

Oh my gosh, this is so cute, Benzi! What a fabulous use for that die cut basket. (and there have to be oodles of ways to use it....Easter eggs, flowers, pumpkins, ornaments, etc.)

Thinking about you and not sure if you are in the 'Snow Belt', but wish you lots of luck weathering the storm.
