SSBC#3 - Have a Heart

IMG_0034

Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new 
For the next two weeks we are challenging you to create something that includes a 'Heart' and also at least ONE Serendipity Stamps product.

I have created a pretty tag using Serendipity Stamps Heart Scroll Stamp and Die Set and a beautiful sentiment from the Heart with Bow Cling Set,  which is also available individually here.

I started with a plain kraft cardstock tag and inked up the edges with some chalky white ink and added a sweet pale lilac die cut doily on top. I die cut a heart shape from some patterned paper using the Serendipity Heart Outline Die and then used the Heart Scroll Cling Stamp to stamp directly onto the die cut using Lavender ink. After sponging the edges with a little Tea-Dye Distress ink, I adhered some mini pom-pom trim around the edge of the heart and finished with some loops of velvet ribbon for leaves and a sweet rose.

I stamped the sentiment in 'Close to Cocoa' ink from SU! onto a label cut from more patterned paper and added to the tag along with some pretty leaf pins and a button. I finished the tag by adhering a strip of pretty cream cotton lace and some velvet ribbon along the bottom.

I know that all the Serendipity DT have some AMAZING samples to share with you today, so do stop by if you have the chance. You won't be disappointed :) Here are the links to the DT Blogs:
