Key to My Heart

Hello again, hope you have been enjoying your day. I had a trip to the Ikea shop with Mum and a friend. We ended up having lunch there and I couldn't resist getting a few little soft toys for my youngest granddaughter to play with. Also managed to get 3 loads of my son's clothes washed and dried. Missing my usual craft sessions as we break for the school holidays and still have the rest of January off. The little group I go to on Saturdays starts back this week though and we will be making a square tissue box cover using card and the cuttlebug for embossing and die cutting. I have to make sure I remember to take all the critical bits and pieces!
Might get that ready tomorrow so I don't forget anything, LOL!
Here is my card for today.
I've used SU Cajun Craze cardstock for the basecard, the DP is also SU and is a scrap from stash. I distressed the edges and then sponged with Tim Holtz ink. I then stamped a word background stamp by Prima Marketing using Choc Chip onto a scrap piece of white card and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz ink and then roughed up the edges as well. I also stamped the lock and key onto this. I stamped these again onto white card using Basic Brown and then cut them out and paper pieced over the original images. The couple were also stamped in SU Basic Brown and coloured with Copic Markers and then fussy cut. These three stamps are all from Hampton Art - Graphic 45 set called Key to my Heart. It doesn't come with any sentiments, but I had the perfect sentiment to go with it. It's from SU You're a Gem clear mount set, also stamped in Basic brown and cut out with the small oval, sponged with the Distress Ink and mounted onto a larger oval in Cajun Craze. I added two little pearls and popped it onto the DP with foam dots. I thought the right hand corner of the main piece was a bit bare, so added some hearts from SU set I (heart) hearts. The chequered one was adhered flat, the large love one was cut out and mounted onto white card and trimmed with a little border. Both of these pieces were sponged around the edges, the last little heart was trimmed with a small border of white and popped up with a bit of foam.
