Hey everybody! I saw a card in a magazine recently that had a 3-dimensional heart on it, and so I decided to try to create something similar. This card contains one of the hearts I made, along with some flourishes made from Liquid Pearls, that were used to cover up my disastrous attempt at paper piercing. It turned out okay in the end, but I had to apply a couple of layers of the Liquid Pearls because the first layer seeped down into the holes that I created with my piercing attempt.

I put together a little tutorial for making the heart and posted it over at Simply Scrapping Crafts - here's the link:

This is another card I made with the same heart technique. On both of these cards I used the Basic Grey Capella line of patterned papers - I think they are fabulously beautiful. The pearls and sentiment stickers on the first card are from K & Company. The banner on the second card was made using a stamp from Ippity by Unity. They have some amazing stamp sets, so visit my friend Rona Mallard and see what gorgeous things she has to offer - that link is:

On a personal note, I got a new little kitten last night - well, actually Chris got the kitten from his dad's neighbor, but Kitty Mommy here gets to take care of it. She is an absolute tiny little doll, but BooKitty isn't so sure what to make of the whole situation. We haven't quite decided on her name yet. Chris wants to call her Amore', which I told him is too hard to say. I want to call here either Too Kitty or Mercedes (because she looks like my car - white with a black piece on top). Here is a photo of my two furry babies!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs to everyone!


  1. Two adorable kitten! The little white is so cute!
    Wow, the cards are gorgeous, I love the little eart in 3D, the dots, and how you assembled the letters to spell the words happiness.

  2. LOVE the heart, Theresa! This is so weird, because before yesterday, I hadn't seen this, and now I see examples using this technique popping up all over the place!! ;) The cards are fabulous, and did you REALLY use liquid pearls? I didn't think they would turn out so well - I might have to try those!

  3. ok, that little white kitten is adorable!!!
    thanks for your comments on my blog, and the ceiling collapsing nightmare is just my landlord wants me to go back in there and clean! no way, it is unsafe. Im meeting with a lawyer today, this is just super stressful for me...
    oh, we are on NOB, i live right behind the commissary/exchange now, it is nice! im much happier, just wish this other nightmare was over


Thanks for the love - it makes my heart sing when I hear from my lovely friends!
