A Little Love...

Have you all seen the new release from Rubber Stamp Tapestry?  Oh need to check it out! There are 10 new sets plus several new individual peg stamps as well. I have been playing with two of these sets - To My Valentine and Follow Your Heart and this is what I came up with...

My first card I wanted to experiment with a different type of wreath. I drew a small circle in pencil on a square of cardstock. I then stamped the larger hearts in the To My Valentine set with a combination of Memento and Versa Fine Clair inks. I made sure the bottom tip of the heart was touching the pencil line to achieve the wreath feel of it.  I then stamped the flower peg stamp inside the wreath of hearts in shades of purple. I used the sentiment from the Handmade with Love set in the center and colored the heart with a variety of colored pencils.

The pink background was created with the flowers from To My Valentine set as well as the leaf from the Follow Your Heart set. I added a scallop mat, accent strip and background mat using Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from Rinea.


I had SOOO much fun with this card!!

Inspired by the wreath on the first card I wanted to try to make a half wreath or a swish on this card. I knew I wanted to start off with the "LOVE" from the O So Fancy sentiment stamp set from last month's release. It's so bold and beautiful, I knew it would make the perfect centerpiece for this card.  It was stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.

To start the half wreath I started out by stamping the Full of Hearts peg stamp from the Follow Your Heart set since it was the largest stamp, from there I stamped the little flowers, leaves and finally the Double Hearts.

I wanted to highlight the pink and greens I used for the flowers and leaves so I flicked pearly green and pink watercolor paints from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints over the entire panel.  This panel was mounted on a grey card base and finished it off with a few Sparkle Blends sequins from Doodles Paper Playground

 I'll be back tomorrow with more Valentine fun.
Till then friends, stay inky!
