Follow My Heart

This is a little-known stamp set entitled Follow My Heart, which was one of the very first photopolymer stamp sets introduced last year. I love the Eiffel Tower image and to me, it says love all over the place. The message inside, "I followed my heart and found you" (from that same stamp set) is so loving and profound that I couldn't resist using it as well.

The base is Whisper White, with a mat of Basic Black. A little row of hearts was punched out of the black along the top border with the Hearts Border Punch and then it was backed with a strip of Real Red. The focal image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White (although it looks Vanilla in this picture) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and a red heart (punched with the same Hearts Border Punch) was affixed with a teensy rhinestone.  The "love" was die cut with the expired Expressions framelits and attached at an angle across the front.

The designer paper panel is from the Stacked with Love Paper Stack and wrapped with a piece of 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon. Hanging from the red ribbon is a little banner with a key attached with Baker's Twine. The key banner is also an image in the Follow My Heart set and it was punched out with the Petite Banner Punch. Add a little Washi tape from the Beach House Washi Tape pack to finish it off.

Thanks for looking,
