Follow Your Heart

Happy Hump Day all!

I’ve been stamping like crazy these past 2 weeks!  The new Stamp of Approval box is coming soon to a mailbox near you and Catherine and the SOA Creative Team have been madly creating cards for the printable PDF that each customer receives with their fabulous box.  This is a MUST-HAVE box let me tell ya!  To sign up to receive an email regarding when the box goes on sale can be found right here plus StampNation members receive notification 1 hour earlier than everyone else – just ONE of the many perks of being an SN member.

Another perk of StampNation is the amazing FREE Creative Stencils class going on right now in honour of SN's 5th birthday!  It’s amazing.  Here’s a little sneak of my latest stencil class creation…

So if you get a chance, check out StampNation!

Today it’s my turn as hostess of the Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch this week and here’s my fun sketch for this week…

I looked at the sketch and the first thing I saw was a “heart” at the end of the arrow so I used the brand new digital stamp set “Follow Your Heart” from Power Poppy.

Isn't it pretty?!?!

I used my Copic Markers to colour in the heart cluster of beautiful roses with all kinds of shades of pink and red.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’ll join us beginning on Saturday for our first sneak peeks of the Stamp of Approval: Young at Heart collection.  See you then!!!

Oh, Ally, I LOVE how you've used this heart-cluster of roses with the arrow through it! Wow, what gorgeous coloring with the red and pink. I was thinking along those lines myself. I need to play with it soon. Beautiful layout with the great dies you've used...totally in LOVE with it! Hugs, sweet friend, and I hope you are keeping warm!
