I got an order last week and I have been playing with my new products!! Oh what fun! Tonight is my 3rd Quarter Hostess Club Meeting and the club ladies will be making this. I can’t wait!! First things first, this card is a CASE from the very talented Debra Burgin over at Heartfelt Inkspirations. I knew I had to make it as soon as I saw it. In the effort to add my own touch, I did change the colors and the sentiment plus added a layer. My colors were inspired by this week’s Stampin’ Celebration piece…a great Valentine’s Day palette!
I pulled out my Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and my Big Shot and rolled the frame right onto the base. I then added Whisper White Craft Ink. I did not use a brayer like Debra did (although that would work, of course). Instead I used another technique that I will cover in an upcoming Stampin’ Addicts Birthday Blog Hop (Feb. 25th – Feb. 27th). I cut a section of the First Edition DSP that talks about Cherry Blossoms. Somehow that seemed appropriate with my use of Cherry Cobbler! The Be My Valentine heart was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and cut out (cutting off the banner) and I stamped the “valentine” from my Teeny Tiny Wishes “happy valentine’s day” stamp in Basic Gray on a 1/2″ strip of Very Vanilla and just snipped the corners. Aren’t Stampin’ Write Markers handy??!! The Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Victoria Crochet Trim were tied together with dyed thread (again with a marker) and a Basic Gray Button. I used a barely inked flower from Fresh Cuts to add a little color to the First Edition paper.
Thanks to Debra for allowing me to CASE her. Be sure to take a look at her many beautiful creations using the link at the beginning of the post! I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest SU Only Challenge. I hope your day is great!
