DYSU Challenge #5 - Red Hot!!

I cannot believe how many entries we are getting to our challenges over on Do You Stack Up.  You are all amazing and thanks for joining in each week.

This week's challenge is "Red Hot" .  So we want to see the colour red on your creation.

We have three lovely sponsors this week. 

Create with TLC who is giving a winner a $10 Gift Certificate for digital images


Sassy Studios Designs who are giving a winner four digi images from their store.


Copic Marker Scrapbooking who are giving a winner 6 Copic Ciao Markers.

I have used a lovely sentiment from Create with TLC and made a fairly simple card.

I printed the words "An Everlasting" directly onto the card and then printed the word "Love" onto another piece of card in red.  I cut this out on the Cuttlebug and inked inside the die to give the red border and distressed the edge of the main card.  The flourishes on the corners and beneath the wording have been stamped using  Personal Impressions clear stamps - "Swirls and Flourishes 1".

The red heart is cut from a 6" x 6" Basic Grey paper pad - "Scarletts Letter" .  I added some clear gems, which I have coloured using a Promarker, around the top of the heart and then attached the "Love" sentiment to it.   A red satin bow and heart charm which I had in my stash, completes the design.  I think the charm actually came off an old bracelet I had!! (Never throw anything away).  I also coloured some more gems and stuck them randomly onto the stamped flourishes.

To decorate the inside, I cut a smaller heart and used the flourish stamp on two corners. I used my own wording for the sentiment and again cut it out on the Cuttlebug and inked inside the die. And that's my card!!!

Please do go over to the DYSU challenge blog and see the other DT's creations.  They are once again, varied and truly amazing and will certainly give you a lot of inspiration to join in the challenge.

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

Hugs and Happy Crafting
