In my Heart with The Project Bin

Hello, everyone!  Can you believe Christmas is next week??  Yikes.  I am so not ready, are you?  I peeked at my Christmas card stash and I did not create nearly enough this year.  I haven't even addressed an envelope yet!  So what did I do today?  I created a card for a totally different holiday!!!  I couldn't help myself!  The Project Bin has a brand new stamp and die set out and I just HAD to play with it!

The first thing I did was head over to Splitcoaststampers to check out the challenges.  The MIX203 challenge is to create a holiday card, ANY holiday.  For my "mix" I took a previously created "wrinkle free distressed" background and die cut the hearts using the In My Heart stamp and die set.  Then I covered the hearts with Glass Beads texture gel.  This stuff is soooo cool.  I watched a video which said it only took an hour to dry....WRONG...I am guessing the artist lives in the north, down here in the south it took more than 3 hours to dry!  It was worth the wait!

The F4A356 challenge is to create with wood so I used some patterned paper that looks like wood.

The design came together easily with the help of the SC623 sketch!! 

I finished off the card with one of the five sentiments included in the 
In My Heart stamp and die set.  Isn't it cute?  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a mini time out from all things Christmasy, I love you so much I could squish you!!!  


  1. Oh, sweet Angie, this is beautiful, and I absolutely LOVE these hearts and especially love the sentiments and the script! Beautifully done!! Love and hugs! xoxo

  2. ANgie, you make the coolest cards and your write ups are always so real. This card, with all the challenges you pulled from, is fantabulous or fabtastical, or something like that!! What is this gel beads???? Oooo....something new, I haven't heard about yet.

  3. What a gorgeous card - love the hearts and how you have given them that beaded look, and the sketch was perfect to use with it

  4. Those hearts are way cool with that texture on them. Nifty card! Yes, drying time may vary depending on the humidity where you live.


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
