May Studio AE Blog Hop

I had great fun playing along with this month's Technique Tuesday Studio AE stamp set called Heartfelt by Ali Edwards – so much fun I made two cards!!

I thought a bright and fun background would be the perfect accompaniment to this sweet sentiment!

The hearts were cut out with my Silhouette and I doodled around them with a white gel pen then popped the whole layer up on the kraft. Then I doodled inside the hearts with black pen. That was fun!!


For my second card, more silhouette cuts and more pink!

I thought this sentiment would look great in brown (not as stark as the black elements in the last card anyway…) and I really like how it plays off the kraft cardstock. I also added some brown shading with a pastel chalk pencil around the heart.

Wanna see more with this awesome set? Want to win a prize??
Hop on down this list and check out some gorgeous projects!

A $25 gift certificate to someone who comments during the hop. The winner will be announced on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

  34. Kraft cardstock is something I recently discovered! In the first card I like the oomph that the doodling adds! The card using the kraft cardstock caught my eye with the way the color 'bursts' at my eyes - I love them both!
