Clustered Hearts

Evening folks. February is well on it's way and love is definitely in the blogland ether.
For the next few months we are doing things a little differently at STAMPlorations so that new mum Shery can do some catch -up. So, instead of all the different challenges we are pooling all our DT talent together for a special monthly challenge. Basically anything goes, CAS, MM or dies, so long as it fits the theme.
Here is my card for your inspiration.

and here is our fab pic to be inspired by.

Obviously I went with the romance element of the pic but you could go with the colours of the teacups, whatever takes your fancy.
My card is very CAS, using the CUTplorations Clustered Heart die and the now sadly retired stamp set Sentiment Builders - Love.
To start I took a panel of linen effect card, then from some of the same stock, I die cut three of the outlines, then again in red. I linked up the hearts to make a complete strip, glued them across my panel and then stamped my sentiment either side of the diecut and gold embossed it. I replaced a few of the white hearts with some red ones and left a tiny one to the right of the sentiment. My panel was popped up on foam pads over a white base card made from the same linen effect card.

The rules for this month's challenge are also slightly different so please check out the STAMPlorations blog for all the details and Ts and Cs. You'll also find loads of inspiration from the rest of the STAMPloration girls.
