Double D - Hearts


 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is hosting today's challenge and our theme is:
and here's an inspiration board Diane has created to help get you started . . .


My first inspiration when seeing the mood board was to use the beautiful red/white gingham but then I realized I was all OUT of red/white gingham so had to shift gears.   Of course I stuck with the red/white color scheme but went with the hearts as my focus.

 The heart background paper is a 12x12 sheet that I've had in my stash for years.
I've used the largest heart in the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Hearts die set for my background heart

 TUTTI-216 Nesting Stitched Hearts

 then used the Memory Box 'Double Heart Banner' (#99083)

 at Simon Says STAMP! | Heart banner, Memory box dies, Memory box

 I die cut the Double Heart Banner twice ... once from the background paper and once from red card stock.  I then proceeded in doing a little paper piecing.

Lastly, I die cut the Tutti Designs LOVE twice from white card stock and glued them together for a little additional dimension and adhered it to the banner.  Unfortunately this LOVE die is no longer available at the Tutti Designs store.

 I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!
