Conversation Hearts Valentines
So when I see a coversation heart stamp - it's mine! In this case, the hearts are part of the PTI Friendship Jar: Spring Fillers stamp set.
Here's what that particular stamp looks like - no conversation - just hearts. In the set there are little individual phrases you can add yourself which is rather nice - so you can pick and choose. We love choice! But there is the problem of actually stamping all those little phrases onto the hearts.
Here's how I solved that particular dilemma as I had 10 of these cards to make. I just put the block on top of the stamped heart image and then placed the little phrases in position so then I was ready to go. I colored the "blue" hearts with a Prismacolor pencil and used the MCPT technique. And the "pink" hearts were colored with a Copic marker.
The rest of the cards came together pretty quickly. I used rectangle Nestabilities to cut the window and emboss around it. I cut the Nestabilities double ended tags and stamped with a Purple Onion Design sentiment and tied it up with some ribbon.
Here's a couple more shots of the finished cards
