Kiss Me You Fool!

I promised you another Valentine card, so here you are! Nothing says romance like this famous on screen couple! Both the main image and the sentiment used on my card come from the Kiss Me You Fool stamp set by The Stampsmith.

I've added a gorgeous Hero Arts doily to the top left corner and embossed it in ivory. To embellish the card, I added some chocolate pearls and lace add a elegant touch. I distressed the main image, with some tea dye distress ink and although it has a bit of a green look to it in the picture, I assure you they aren't green! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Hey, Handsome!

Romance is in the air and I've been on a Valentine card making frenzy over the past few days. I think I've paired the fabulous, Marilyn Flying Dress image with a very fitting sentiment. The "Hey, Handsome!" comes from the Show Biz Quotes stamp sheet by The Stampsmith.

Here's a close up of the lovely, Marilyn and the "Hey, Handsome!" sentiment.

Stay tuned, I have more Valentine cards to show you soon!

Pin-Up Valentine

I have a sexy Valentine's card to share with you tonight. This photostamp comes from the Pin-Ups stamp sheet by The Stampsmith. This is such a fun image and I love the silhouette shadow effect.

Here's the entire sheet of stamps.
I'll have more cards to share with you soon! Stay tuned...

TSC27: Love and Lace

I had a lot of fun creating this piece for TSC27: Love and Lace over at The Stampsmith Challenge. I used The Little Conductor stamp by The Stampsmith for my main focal image and added lots of lace from both embossed stamps and real lace.

This month's challenge is being sponsored by The Cutting Garden. It's one of our local crafty stores and happens to be owned by a great friend of mine. The store has just relocated to a new location and it's fabulous! In celebration of sponsoring the challenge, I'll be teaching a card class at The Cutting Garden this month along with three others on the design team! That's right four of us will be there to join in on the fun and show you all how to make four beautiful cards! Check out their calendar for more information and pics of all the cards we'll be doing that day. Hope to see you there on Feb. 11th! :)

Here's a close up The Little Conductor. Isn't he just too cute for anything?
I plan to use this piece in a shadow box that I'm putting together as a memento of my late grandmother. I plan to add some old pictures and some of her own crocheted pieces that were handed down to me. I'll share my finished piece when it's all put together.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
