Theme challenges are so much fun, because they give you lots of leeway. But, I loved the Paper Players inspirational photo so much, my design ended up looking a lot like it!

Love is in the air

Here’s the inspirational photo. See what I mean?


My sky is Balmy Blue cardstock on a Thick Whisper White card base. The white clouds are represented by Delightfully Detailed laser-Cut Paper. I just snipped a section from the 12X12 sheet, and used tiny dots of Liquid Glue to adhere it to the sky. The edges were trimmed before gluing the sky to the card base.


Isn’t my Lovely Lipstick heart beautiful? I can brag about it, because all I did was crop it from a piece of All My Love Designer Series Paper. There’s a heart die in the Be Mine Stitched die set that is the perfect size for cutting. I love it when Stampin’ Up! matches dies to the designer paper! The pretty, white, trim around the heart is from another heart die in the Be Mine Stitched die set.


The two “love birds” on the heart were made with a Botanical Tags die, cut from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. They are perched on a branch from the same Botanical tags die set.

I  used a Sunshine Wishes die for cutting the word, “love,” and matched it to the bird’s feathers.
