Hearts Aren't Just for Valentine's Day...

I used an Impression Obsession die, Heart of Hearts, to make four different cards for different occasions...thinking...hearts are love, but they don't have to be just for Valentine's Day...
 Ok...can start out with an obvious LOVE card...
I layered a couple white die cuts with a black piece of cardstock beneath them.   I added 2 red hearts to the center hearts and put some glossy accents over them for some shine...
The sentiment is Paper Smooches, masked and stamped in red and black.


Then...I thought of Fall and with the perfect sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, I  layered the white paper like the first, but sponged four Hero Arts inks on a glossy piece of paper, then layered beneath the white panel...


 The third one I thought of a wedding, and used metallic red and silver to fill in the hearts on the die cut with the two center ones being the sole silver ones.  I know the pic is not the best...hard to photograph metallic paper, but the Congratulations by Simon Says Stamp is stamped with versamark and silver embossed, the whole card shows so much better IRL...


The fourth one has, OF COURSE, rainbow colors...the sentiment from My Favorite Things just lent itself to these colors so perfectly...sentiments are sooooo key for me when it comes to card making...
For this card, I used seven different colors and replaced the colors into the white cut out hearts.  Just thought this DID look cheerful?!  There you have it...SUPER FUN!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
