Love You Bunches with a Twist!

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well!!!

Today we are taking a look back at the February release at Our Daily Bread designs.  I thought since Valentine's Day is over, why not have a little fun with a different take on the heart stamps and dies of the Feb. release?  So, I stamped my little hearts from the Bless Your Heart set with Gumball Green Ink. and cut them out with the Custom Ornate Heart Dies.  I then arranged them  on a SB Labels 28 die which I had embossed with a Sizzix heart and vine folder, and had inked the edge with green ink.  I mounted that on a Decorative Labels 28 cut from white card stock.  The designer paper is is some Martha Stewart paper that I have had in my stash for quite a while.  The sentiment from Love You Bunches was stamped with the same green ink and cut with the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags die (smallest tag in set).   I used bakers twine to create "stems" and threaded through my tiny button centers.


Here are the February release products used today:

I had to comment. I was lost with the small die and stamps and now I have great ideas. I like how you turned them into shamrocks.

Like using the hearts to make a 4 petal shamrock and then the 3 petal ones. Nice balance on this St. Patty's type card.

Oh, Grace, this is brilliant using the hearts to make shamrocks...and even a four-leaf one! I love the design, the colors, and especially the buttons with twine! Absolutely derailing! Hugs, sweet friend!

So cool! And so clever, Grace! I make shamrocks out of hearts every year but it didn't occur to me to do w/ this heart. Great look!
