CASology #170 - Hearts

Hi my dear blog buddies!  Today, I decided to have a go at a challenge that I don't believe I have entered before - you all know how it is, you get into a bit of a rut and end up always entering the same challenges over and over . . . no?  . . . maybe it's just me then!

Anywho, the challenge I decided to enter is CASology, where they have a challenge with a cue card and that, this week is

Well, I remembered a stamp set that I purchased a long while ago and never got around to inking it up, but I thought would be perfect for this challenge.  It is the Simon Says Stamp 'Locking Hearts' set.

First, I stamped one half of the heart in a pink ink (representing me) and then the other half in blue (representing my other half . . . gedit? . . . sorry!)

Next, I inked up one half of the sentiment with the pink and the other half in the blue - I overlapped them a bit in the middle, hoping for a purple, but as it was pigment ink it didn't work out very well - perhaps I should buy a pink and a blue in a dye ink.

This is my card

Oh, and I finished the heart with a helping of WOS and glossy accents!

As always, thanks for stopping by and for your comments that help to make my day.  Have a great one, whatever you are doing.  Hazel xx


  1. Oh Hazel my dear this is such a lovely card. And I just love the idea behind it (you and your hubby).
    Really love this card. I played before with casology but it's been a while. Do you purchase your simon says stamp products in the USA ? Does it cost a lot to have it send to the UK ?
    Love some of theire items but didn't get any so far.
    Hugs, Veerle xxx

    1. Hi Veerle

      Yes, I have bought quite a large number of items from them, I’m trying not to lately as their postage is quite steep. It ranges from $14.99 to $49.99 (depending on total cost of order, they only deliver Free international postage if the order value is over $350.

  2. And it turned out great - hope you will enter this CAS challenge again
