Heart Two Heart

Hello! Back to more cold and snow so I am back in my studio!  Playing again with the Twofer Card Challenge #23 Hearts. I am using a Heart Die from Gina K Designs You Have My Heart set.  I die cut a bunch of hearts from cardstock in my stash....used up some scraps.  I created a birthday card using a patterned paper that was perfect for celebrating a birthday.  I picked hearts inspired by the colors in the paper and made a "bunch of balloons" held together with metallic gold string (thread). I floated the balloons a top the background paper popped up with foam.  Double cut the Happy Birthday dies by Cheery Lynn  from Pink and Yellow cardstock and attached to the card. Used a Pink card base to finish. 
I made a Valentine for the second card.  I used a  heart die cut from Red cardstock, popped up on red foam, attached to a die cut stamped heart(red ink on white), attached to a red circle and then a White Doily. I actually embossed the doily with Versamark ink and White EP to give it some shine and body.  I completed the design with a Red card base and a sentiment heat embossed with the White EP. Stamps, dies and EP are from Gina K Designs.

Other challenges:
Use Your Stuff: Anything Goes
Dies R Us Challenge: #137 Birthdays.  Used Cheery Lynn and Gina K Designs dies. 
Just Add Ink: #488 no challenge guidelines this week, only that you create a "new" project with a celebratory theme. Celebrating a birthday. 
Double D Challenges: Fun with Balloons. Took inspiration from the heart shape balloon and bright colors on mood board.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Great Two Fer! The doily really makes that Valentine look so traditional and lovely. The heart balloons are fun and cheerful with the birthday paper.

Welcome back and thank you for playing again in Twofer's 2nd Blogaversary challenge, Theresa! You've created two more excellent designs! I love your birthday card with the fun heart-shaped balloons tied with gold thread and placed over festive confetti pp! I also like the way you offset your two-tone sentiment to make it even more festive. And your Valentine is a traditional delight! What an inspired idea to emboss the doily!! Hugs, Darnell

Your bouquet of heart balloons is so fun and celebratory against the confetti background, Theresa ... and what a pretty Saint Valentine's Day card with the delicate, dainty doily surrounding that single plump heart! Thanks so much for playing along with us again at Twofer! Anita :)
