CS Designs "Expressive Hearts"

February 7th 2011
These cute little ornaments were made with card and 2 of the Expressive Hearts range of digi stamps from the wonderful Chris Stern of CS Designs. Make sure you pop over to her store and get some in time for making some Valentine's Goodies! You can also check the other DT members Blogs (listed in my sidebar) for more ideas on using these gorgeous hearts!
These are made with 6 squares of cardboard - four printed pieces with the Expressive Hearts then scored, folded and stuck together. They have a ribbon hanger and one has a tassell and the other some silver charms hanging from the bottom. I think they are really cute!

I first made this type of ornament at my local stamp group where a very clever lady called "Rosie" (who loves to make boxes and the like) taught us how to make them - I don't know where she got the pattern from. We just used patterned double sided card which was a bit easier than printing an image onto the card and getting it in the right sport for scoring and folding!

I have entered my litte ornaments in this weeks Spot Challenge at Dezinaworld as a "charming" item (I have used charms dangling at the bottom of one of my ornaments) and also the new Stamptacular Challenge has a "hearts gone wild" theme. The Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog has a "Red Hot" theme so I have entered my ornaments on their site too!
