Addicted to Stamps - Challenge #128




Hi everyone,
I'm back with a quick post to share my DT card for this week's Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge. Our theme is 'Holiday' and the winner will receive a $15.00 coupon from our sponsor, Deedee's Digitals.




I used a classic design and created a stencil with my Hero Arts heart die, and inked it with Pale Tomato shadow ink. The small heart was die cut separately and inked with the same ink and popped up. I then coated the heart with Glossy Accents and stamped the sentiment and arrows. 

If you have a chance, stop over to the ATSM Challenge Blog for inspiration from my fellow teamies and our Guest designers from Deedee's Digitals ~ We would love to have you play along!

Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by ~
