Soft Heart Trio

Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Pool Party, and Chocolate Chip----love it!  This is the color combo over at Just Add Ink right now.  Initially I was thinking that this would make a perfect combo for a baby card, but then I noticed some of my new rubber sitting on my table and decided to give it a try with my new set called You are Loved.  I've seen this set in the catalog and kept thinking about getting it, and I took the plunge when it was part of the Online Spectacular sale a couple weeks ago.  The part that I fell in love with was the tag.  The designer label punch has been one of my favorites for some time, so naturally I "needed" that tag stamp.  I like how the oval in the center of the tag fits perfectly with the oval punch.  When trying to formulate this card, I looked at the large heart stamp and decided that I liked the pattern in it, but that the large heart wasn't going to work with what I was going for.  I stamped the large heart in Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, and Pool Party, and then used my full heart punch to punch out just a portion of it so that I could get a patterned heart more appropriately sized for this card.  I layered those hearts with Stampin' Dimensionals onto 1-3/4" squares that I cut from the Patterns DSP (I wish there was a square punch that size, but the paper cutter worked just fine).  I mounted those on some white, then Chocolate Chip, then Pretty in Pink card stock.  I textured my Pool Party card base with the Elegant Lines embossing folder to try and mimic the fun pattern in the hearts.  I tied some Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon around the bottom of the card and then mounted my tag on it with more Stampin' Dimensionals.  I think I'll have to remember this color palette and try it out with some baby stamps next time.
