How're you? Hope you
are managing to just chill out
and re-charge those batteries
ready for another busy week
Actually it is Valentine's week
and to start us off, here is
Angela Radford with a gorgeous
"Hi all. We can't say goodbye to February
without some Valentine's cards so this is
the one I've made for you
I thought for once that I would work
directly onto the card blank with stamping
This is not part of the card but thought you
might like to see what I did with the spare ink
on the Stencil and stamp.
"Waste not, Want not" as they say.
Not sure what I will do with this but I like it!
Decided to add a red key so stamped
and embossed the same key and then
cut it out and attached it slightly offset from
the black one to give a shadow effect.
The main focal image is a stamped heart
by Kim Dellow (PapperArtsy) which I stamped
on the card blank then onto seperate sheets of card,
embossed, coloured, cut them out and
layered them up,
attaching some red ribbon to the card before
adding the heart.
I completed the card by adding brads and
Stickles glitter glue.
All the stamps used are by PaperArtsy and the
stencil is The Crafters Workshop.
Happy crafty week, Angela xXx
Thank you for a beautiful card Angela, your
treatment of the key part of the design is
indeed, a masterstroke.
I am inspired by your stamping off paper
to do something similar in an art journal
Oooh! I do like this card and I have been
racking my brains as to what I should do
for a Valentine's card - well, I worry no
