This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a clean and simple project that uses a heart....                                             
How fitting it is that this week's sponsor is I{heart} papers ...

You can check out CAS-ual Fridays for all the deets!!
Here's what I made with hearts...
 I made this with the medium Papertrey Ink heart die and a Hero Arts border stamp.

 I made it with Fall colors.  Wanted to show you how I did it(just in case anyone should ever could happen... By some trial and error, I learned how to make it super simply and wanted you to know how, too:)!!)...  the color variations are endless...for my sample I chose rainbow Go-to color combo of of my very favorites!!..
1.  Die cut 7 hearts and stamp the sentiment on a piece of 5 1/2" long cardstock(I used a real thin cheap white cardsock).
2. Put light adhesive on back of each heart and adhere over the sentiment(kind of going with the wave-like directions).
 3.Place the heart die over the last heart and press down to secure a little and then die cut

  4.  Die cut all the hearts from right to left until all cut out...saving the bottom of the cut out white cardstock.

5. Using the white cut out cardstock, adhere it to bottom of card( I used Eclipse stick) and use it as pattern to place all the hearts in perfect positioning ... again, lightly adhere the hearts( they now have the cheap white cardstock on the backs of them), now to the card!  Now they are laying flat with one another...time to stamp!

 6.  Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig(and I used a static bag over the hearts before stamping), stamp the sentiment and clear emboss over the hearts.
 7. Pull off hearts one at a time and add a dimensional square still using the pattern(you can see it's still in place at the very bottom of pic) to keep the hearts in right position when putting them back on card...and
8.  Voila!!(I textured the card with a different Papertrey Ink texture plate on each card).
Hope you'll join in the fun this week...make certain to check out the inspiration on the CAS-ual Fridays BLOG AND FACEBOOK...hope you all have a wonderful week!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
