Hugs and Kisses

This is my first post as an ABC design team member and I hope you like what I have created for you.

I began with this fabulous new stamp from Hero Arts called Hugs and Kisses.  I stamped it once on Cryogen white paper which I cut out with a circle Nestabilities. I stamped it a second time on pink card stock, cutting out the center circle.  I colored the center heart on the Cryogen paper with Copics: R46, RV14, pink and white Glaze pens and pink Souffle pen and then cut it out.  I die cut a red scalloped circle using my Nestabilities, adding white dots with my white Glaze pen.
Then I stacked all the layers using EK Success 3D-dots.  I embossed the pink panel with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then used the new Martha Stewart Hugs and Kisses border punch across the bottom.  Finished size is 5.5" square.
