A Shabby Chic Heart Card

Hola, lovely Bombshells!  Cheryl here.  Last week I shared an easy embossing resist technique for creating interesting backgrounds.  This week I'm back to share what I made with the die cut panel I created in the tutorial.  

Our fabulous pin-up gal for August is Milo and she set our theme this month and challenged us to create shabby chic cards or projects.  Well, I have the "shabby" part down, not so sure about the "chic" part...LOL!

For this card, I used a gorgeous heart with wings image from the All My Heart set.  Believe it or not, there was a time when I hated hearts.  Not the ever-so-fierce organ that keeps me perky, but the super cute, saccharin sweet images that many stamp companies use in their Valentine's Day releases...BLECH!  Then I started to take an interest in religious themed art and the sacred heart was frequently featured in these types of works.  After that I was practically obsessed with it.  When Bombshell Stamps released the two heart sets, I was nearly over the moon.  Now I can't get enough...heck, I even like the cute stuff ;D  Funny how our tastes can change so drastically from one moment to the next :)


  1. Love it. Thanks for sharing

  2. Wow. This is totally gorgeous. I love the way you colored and glittered the heart, the way you used your panel from the tutorial, and the design.

  3. This is VERY cool! I love it!


  4. I have been waiting to see this card finished after your tutorial. It definitely passes all expectations. Fantastic
