I know it’s a month and a half before Valentines Day, but I’m determined to be prepared!! For my card today I’m using a very elegant Penny Black stamp called Love is the Message – it’s just one of the nifty stash of Valentines Day stamps over at Stamper’s Dream. The stamp is mostly solid – I love this – so no coloring today. I actually stamped and clear embossed with black Versafine ink then stamped and clear embossed another image with Adirondack Fired Brick Red distress ink. For the second image I cut it out and popped it up to give a little dimension. Can you just imagine that stamp embossed with gold?
For the framing embellishment I used Spellbinders™ In Spades Pendant which I cut in half and used on each corner. I also used the small companion pieces on the corners of my top stamped panel. The loops from the edges of the die template are a mighty convenient place for some ribbon. After a bow in the corner, I sprinkled with tiny pearls. For the sentiment I lopped off the end of a Spellbinders™ Double Ended Tag.
By the way, Stampers Dream is having a sweet New Years sale to include Prism Papers and JustRite Stamps – just sayin’ :-)
Big smooches y’all!
