HSS 109

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  It's that time already, time for a new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The challenge this week is pretty fitting for spring!  It's all about rainbows!

For my project I decided to do a piece of framed art for my new stamp studio.  I've been wanting to make some display pieces since I have a bigger room now and I can more easily decorate it.  I stocked up on some shadow box type frames the last time I was at Ikea so I used on here with the fashionable hearts embosslit.
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Pursuit of happiness
Paper:  Whisper white textured,  concord crush, rich razzleberry, wisteria wonder, island indigo, marina mist, pool party, wild wasabi, lucky limeade, daffodil delight, peach parfait, calypso coral, poppy parade, regal rose, blushing bride
Ink:  Concord crush
Accessories:  Glimmer brads (in color, subtles, brights), in color polka dot printed brads, brights buttons, white baker's twine, fashionable hearts embosslit

Now, this turned out totally cute but was kind of a pain to make:-)  It took a while to cut out all the hearts and then it took some time to line them all up how I wanted them according to color.  I put a brad or button in one of each of the hearts per color and then popped that heart up on dimensionals.  It actually only took a couple of hours at the most (I really didn't pay attention to the time, hehe) but was just kind of tedious with all those small hearts and the brads and everything.  I also stamped one of the sentiments from pursuit of happiness in the corner.  I really love that stamp set!

I love how it turned out and my husband was really impressed, hehe!  Now head on over to HSS and see what everyone came up with over the rainbow:-)  And then play along!

Happy stamping!
