Lots of hearts

Our neighbours' wedding was the perfect opportunity to get out my new heart stamps from Paper Smooches (Sweet Hearts). As a matter of fact, Paper Smooches are celebrating their 3rd Anniversary! Happy Anniversary Paper Smooches!!! In addition, they are hosting a fun challenge.

I stamped several hearts in HA Pale Tomato and Mememto Rhubarb Stalk for a bit of variation. I stamped the big heart again, fussy cut it and adhered it using foam tape. I matted the panel onto some paper strips that I had inked up with the Rhubarb ink. For the sentiment I die cut a banner (Small Folded Banners, Simon Says Stamp/Memory Box) and stamped the sentiment (Everyday Sayings, HA) in black Archival ink.

To finish things off, I added some sparkle to the big heart with my Wink of Stella glitter marker (see the picture below) and a few sequins.
