Sweet Love Hearts


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Love is in the Air .We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I went with having a try at something new using this fab A Day For Daisies image.I saw  this super project for a Pop-Up Box Card at SplitCoast Stampers and thought this image would work well with it – besides I love these sweets!Always have to get myself a pack when I buy some for the kids.Takes me right back to my childhood 🙂 I coloured up Love Hearts with some soft pastel pencils as these sweets have quite a chalky texture.Plus it helped to keep the colours more muted.I chose card and papers in pastel shades to tone in with the image.I printed the sentiments on my ‘puter then die cut them.Two of the buttons were adhered to strips of acetate to give a little bounce and dimension along with an extra one added to the bottom sentiment.This was a lot of fun to make and dead simple too!Well,it had to be – it was me doing it after all 😉

Supplies :

Image : Love Hearts by  A Day For Daisies
Sentiment : Made by me! 
Mediums : Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils,Winsor and Newton Artist’s Fixative
Papers & Card : DP Papermania Spots & Stripes Pastels 8 x 8 paper pack,Trimcraft 12 x 12 Textured Card,Papermania 12 x12 Acetate Sheets (this is really thick acetate and works well for this)

    As soon as I saw this very pretty box my mind jumped back a number of decades to the very sweets you refer to Lisa. Do your children play the game we used to play ….instead of offering the tube of sweets to share, we used to spread the sweets out and carefully selected the message we wanted to share. Thank you for the trip down memory lane through this lovely box.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely project in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
