Cards From the City of Love

Hello.  Welcome. Here's a couple more cards using my Arty Hearty masterboard background and the gorgeous colours from the current Rubber Dance Colour Challenge.

I thought the top of the masterboard, with the rounded bits of the hearts, looked a bit like clouds, so decided to stamp a city underneath them. 

I stamped the row of Rubber Dance Textured Houses, coloured with pink and green distress inks and fussy cut the top of the houses.  I stuck a piece of my masterboard on the card and added the houses.  I stamped some more small hearts over the background using one of the heart stamps from Just a Note.  The Rubber Dance Textured Flower was stamped and embossed and coloured with brusho's.  It's not a daisy, it's a sun flower!!  LOL.  OK, moving swiftly along.........

On this card there is less background and many more Rubber Dance Textured Houses.  I have used masks to stamp multiple rows of the houses and then coloured with distress inks again.  Some more of the small hearts and the sun is from Take The Plunge.

Thanks for dropping by.  You have until midnight on the 14th of February to join the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Hugz

  1. WOW, you must have made a BIG masterboard to get so many makes out of it! Love the heart clouds!! Funny with the daisy turned into a SUN flower :) Thanks, sweetie! xx

    1. Ah, well, OK I admit, I did make 2, one landscape, one portrait, but these cuties are only 10 x 10cm each so they didn't take much. Hugz

  4. These cards are so clever and made me smile from ear to ear! And it was a double-bonus to see the background made TWO different ways! So creative to layer the rows of village houses to fill up more of the background on the second card. They both are stunning and I love the subtle pattern you added to the sky as well- those fabulous hearts just sort of emerge and give the cards a really cool look. Thanks for sharing such inventive cards and for your continued support of our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges. I always look forward to your entries!
