Introducing Happy Hearts

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink December countdown and the first Design Team group post! 

Today's group post is all about showcasing the new Happy Hearts stamp set and coordinating Cover Plate: Hearts die.  It doesn't take much to make my heart go a flutter, when it comes to stamping.  I'm quite pleased with today's featured products and could not be happier to play with them!  This is the coolest cover plate as of yet, it's simple and features an unexpected space perfect for a sentiment. 

Check out what I've cooked up for you today...
Instead of the expected portrait use of the Cover Plate: Hearts die, I opted to use a portion of it on a landscape layout.  I love the look of layering white on white.
To keep things simple, yet interesting, I embellished the heart openings with a pretty assortment of pearls.  By attaching the cover plate die cut like so I did need to trim off the bottom and top edges.

I love to make love cards!  And this one makes me happy (well, the one above does too).  I stamped a white cardstock panel with an assortment of solid and pattern hearts in a color combo of soft stone, sweet blush and pure poppy.  Soft and pretty.
I wrapped the stamped panel with pure poppy baker's twine and tied the ends into a big bow.  Then finished the card off with a sentiment banner (made using the new It's a Banner Day die).

Well, that concludes my look at the Happy Hearts stamp set and coordinating Cover Plate: Hearts dieJust remember... this collection will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
