Things I Love...

Hi there!

I've had this stamp set for a little while, and hadn't used it.  I think it's a great set to use for a Valentine's card, or just to say "I love you".  It doesn't even have to be for a significant other.. it could be for your mom, sister, friend, etc.

Stamping 411 has another sketch up, and that is what I used for this card:

Isn't it cute?  I inked up each image carefully with the ink pads, then colored the words on the stamps with my Chocolate Chip marker.  The panel at the bottom is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions folder.  Not much else to describe, other than that I added faux stitching with the Ruby Red marker, and the little Pewter Mini Library Clip in the corner has Bravo Burgundy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon tied on it.  Oh, and the Whisper White satin ribbon was cinched with some Linen Thread tied into a bow.  Love this set and all of my little accessories!

My stamping buddy Mary inspired me to decorate the inside of my card - I normally don't for some reason.  I guess I didn't want to limit myself when it comes time to write in it!  It gives it such a nice extra touch though, and I think I'll be doing this more often.  Here's the inside:

I stamped the heart first by inking the stamp with Ruby Red, then "stamping off" on scratch paper to make it a little lighter, then stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!  Hope you get to spend the day with someone you love.
