Inspired hearts

Hi crafters. The current Paper Smooches Challenge is to be inspired by one of the design team. I chose this card by Jill Hawkins. I like the design, the stitching and the colours. I don’t have that die so I used the Paper Smooches Tiny hearts dies. I drew a spiral on some white cardstock and then die cut the hearts along that. I decided to use the arrow as well and have that point toward the ‘you’. The hearts were coloured with alcohol markers. I stitched the panel to an orange cardbase with orange thread. My machine plays up if I stitch through any adhesive, but I wanted to keep the card stock still while sewing the hearts. I stitched the hearts a few at a time. Some tried to pop out but that just shows it’s handmade, right? 🙂 The sentiment is the Paper Smooches You are loved die, but I trimmed it down a bit.

I am entering the October Paper Smooches Challenge.

Happy crafting,
