Lovey Dovey


Christmas is barely over and already everything is focused on Valentine's Day. I guess I'm no different. I am trying to get more ahead of the curve this year and not wait until the last minute to create cards for occasions. Now that the Christmas hustle and bustle is over I had some time to just sit down and play around with some stamps. I am loving my new Papertrey Valentine stamps!

This card is clean and simple. I had this card base sitting on my desk. At first I thought it was Papertrey Aqua Mist but realized it was SU! Soft Sky. I also had this fun ribbon in my stash and it coordinates very well with Su! Ruby Red ink. Sorry, I don't remember whose ribbon this is. Maybe Making Memories?? The heart image is an older PTI set called Heart Prints. I stamped it and then stamped another one that I punched out and popped up on dimensionals and framed it with a Vintage Label. To create the border I scored two lines with my Scor-Pal, rubbed a little vintage cream ink on them to make them stand out a little and then added one of the ultra cute border stamps from Simple Valentine. One little rhinestone was all the bling I thought I needed for this card. This is more simple than a lot of my cards but it felt "right" to me so stopped adding things. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love hearing from each and every one of you!

Kim, sometimes simple is best and you're right... this card really needed nothing more... it's so cute and I love the vintage label border around the focal image. Nice bling, too! :)

Ooooooh! I love the colour combination here! This is so pretty! I love the clean look you achieved here - and that little shine of bling in the dot on the heart is perfect!

Nice job. I think you added just enough too. The color combo is great as well.
