Always -Valentine Challenge-
This is a challenge I am doing with a few friends to create a Valentine with something we already own from the current catalog. You would be totally amazed at how many stamps you could use to do double duty for a Valentine/love-friendship card. I came up with 30 different images and sentiments that will work for this with the sets that I already own. Look at your catty just one more time before the new one comes in and see what you can find!
I combined this with our weekly Doubledog Dare challenge this week hosted by Francie G. to use 3 shades of the same color.
I made my own designer paper by stamping (and stamping off) stamps from the Always set in Riding Hood Red and Pirouette Pink. I embossed the entire thing in clear embossing powder using the Floral background stamp. Bird was stamped in RHR and kissed with small flower stamp, masked off bird and stamped heart over top in pink. Adore sentiment was singled out from the Tres Chic background stamp in Ruby Red. Filigree brad for embellishing.
