Follow Your Heart

Hello Market Street Friends!
I wanted to share a couple of cards I made using the Follow Your Heart stamp set from Market Street Stamps. I love bird stamps and this set has 3 different sizes. It also has 4 different sizes of heart stamps in solid and outline form. I love the little hearts. I used them to make the background paper by stamping them in red and pink using both the solid and outline stamps. The Be Mine stamps are from my stash. I used the medium sized bird and reverse stamped the image.

If you would like to see a tutorial on how I mirror stamp, you may click here. The birds were colored with copics. I used Marvy punches for the circle and scallop. The polka dot ribbon is from Stampin Up.

For the second card I used the heart stamps to create the nest. I used the large bird stamp and did a small amount of paper piecing. I made these cards for children . Card Cupids is having a challenge for Valentines. If you would like to read more about Card Cupids you may do so here.
