This week at Crafty Creations Challenges, we're looking for Valentine-themed projects -- after all, Valentine's Day is less than a month away! I've got two heart-related cards to help get your ideas flowing.
It's a one-layer card! Even though I'm all about keeping my cards clean and simple, I rarely make one-layer cards. Somehow, they always seem too plain. However, after stamping these hearts and trying to layer them several different ways, I realized they were calling out to just be right on the card base. I also have to share my (very) unlikely inspiration:
Don't worry, I'm not equating myself to Matisse. ☺I used this piece a number of times in the classroom as part of an art lesson in collage. When I was looking at my heart stamps, trying to decide what to do with them, I thought of this and using them as a tower.
My second card has no links to modernist art:
Instead, it has candy hearts! I stamped each heart on a different colour of cardstock with a coordinating ink. This easy frame is fun to use when it's a card you don't plan to send in the mail.
