New Home card

I had an exciting delivery from C&C this week as I treated myself to a early/late birthday present at the start of their birthday weekend- I ordered it before my birthday but it arrived after! I got hold of the Inkadinkado stamping system that allows you to stamp in circles, ovals, squares & rectangles perfectly. It looked fab on screen and I've barely played with it yet but I know there will be lots of cards made using it appearing on my blog over the next few months. The corners of the card were stamped using the system and a simple heart stamp.

I started with my favourite 8x8 white card blank which I stamped using a heart stamp and the circle wheel from the Inkadinkado set. As I overlapped the hearts, they created the almost floral image. I then cut a piece of heart patterned Creata cardstock (that has a hand-drawn look) to a smaller square and mounted this onto the card. The topper is a pre-coloured die-cut from Lily of the Valley. I inked the edges of the topper with the same ink that I used for the stamped corners- 'Worn Lipstick' distress ink. I then got a Kanban die-cut heart and inked it using the same ink and then added the peel-off sentiment.
