* Artsystamper: Hearts and Flowers

Happy Monday!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at the Artsystamper Challenge Blog
Each challenge runs for two weeks and starts on the first and third Monday of the month. 
The theme for this challenge is Hearts and Flowers
I hope that you can find time to join in the fun!

The winner will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop. The Top 3 will also receive an image of Beverly's choice!
Beverly Cole’s selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-coloured images for easy, last minute cards. Why not take a moment and check out what she has in store!

Here is what I made:

For the first card, I printed out 4 heart roses and fussy cut them, each time removing an outer layer of petals. I inked the edges and added some Stickles Diamond glitter to the petal edges and layered them together with 3D foam to make a large rose.
I made my background paper by overlapping the same heart rose. I added glitter around the edge of each rose.
Some glittered vellum was added to the centre of the background along with some pink  organza style ribbon and the rose was placed on top. The background was matted onto black paper and the sentiment inked and adhered on foam tape.

The second card has the same heart rose background and a white card topper made with three of the roses with 'love you' stems. I decoupaged three extra rose heads to add dimension and matted the topper onto black card. I made a banner with a strip of the background paper matted onto black card, and added a ribbon and a knot bow. The topper is placed on foam pads onto the background.

Rose Heart

That's all for today!
