Love & Kisses for Sunday Stamps

Hello friends, I hope this finds you doing well!  It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps where Lisa has created this fun sketch.

I'm also joining the current challenges at Double D, with a theme of Valentine Love, and the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Love Is In The Air.

When I saw Lisa's sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

These little heart balloons just tickle me and are perfect for a valentine or for birthdays, weddings, you name it.  I stamped and colored them with Copic markers, then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  The sentiment was stamped with black pigment ink then cut out with matching dies.  The words "and kisses" is separate from "love" so it can be paired up with "hugs" as well.

To put the card together, the red heart patterned paper was layered on a slightly larger panel of black and then adhered directly to the card base.  The panels under the heart balloons were centered on the card base, then the heart balloons were added with a bit of foam tape just under the balloon part, then a strip of black and white heart paper adhered horizontally. The sentiment was then added using thin foam squares. A few tiny red hearts were scattered about then the balloons were covered with Glossy Accents for some wonderful shine.

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  Be sure to use the link above to check out the beautiful cards by the other DT members and hopefully join us for the challenge as well!
