Itty Bitty Stamp - Not so, Itty Bitty Card...

Today I am sharing a card using Unity Itty Bitty - Captured My Heart (Artist Lisa Arana). These cards were made for their current Unity Challenge which can be viewed here  - Unity [Show & Tell].

I really like this image - so much so...that I decided that I would create a few cards with it. I got a little carried away with the stamp and my MISTI tool. It can be quite difficult to decide when to stop! My first card (below) was originally a line...I then added another line, and then another line and then decided I had to create a background of camera images.

I decided to paper piece one camera on each card. I generally don't like fussy cutting (love dies!) but I made an exception for this card, and it wasn't too difficult to cut a few straight lines! :) 

Its also a technique I haven't tried in a long time - most likely because I don't like cutting images out... but glad I did as the card came together really nicely. I used pink card and the patterned paper is from Crate - Hello Love (6"x6" paper pad). I used My Little Paper World (MLPW) Rectangle nesting dies as well as MLPW Circle nesting dies.

I really enjoyed how this card turned out (below). I loved the sentiment that comes with this stamp. You've Captured my Heart! So I thought I'd go crazy and stamp rows of it - the MISTI tool really helped, along with a few pencil drawn lines! I also love seeing the die cut effect especially the circle ones!

I finished each card with some Studio Calico Wood Veneer Hearts (which I brushed with Clear - Wink of Stella) and some neutral twine.
