February MFT Guest Designer Contest

It's the beginning of the month, and that means it's time for another MFT guest designer contest!  We were challenged this month to Stamp Our Hearts Out - make something to do with love and/or hearts.  Here is my submission - I really love it!
The process:
1. I cut the rustic white layer, the big heart frame, and the letters. I laid it all out and taped the letters on with removable adhesive to make a mask of sorts.
2. I stamped.  LOTS OF STAMPING!  It was so fun to do!  I started with the text background strip, then a BUNCH of hearts, and the word LOVE.  I used only one red ink pad and stamped full strength and stamped off to get some lighter colors.
3. I then removed the die-cut letters to reveal the cardstock underneath.  Stamped the Yours Truly (love that the outline in black is not too overpowering!), added the ribbon, glued down the heart frame, chomped the top corner, and added the black pearl clusters.
4. Lastly, and it gets its own number in the process, a generous spritz of Calico Shine. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
