Another Valentine...Sorry It's Been a Few Days

Hi there! Sorry it's been a few days, but life seems to be passing me by and I'm not getting anything done! Anyway, wanted to try this layout - thought it looked like it could be fun. And again, I couldn't resist using my new Love You Much bundle. The Designer Paper is from Frosty Days (Holiday Mini Catalog), it's the opposite side of the quilted snowflakes. I have a bunch of it left, so thought I'd challenge myself to use orange DP for a Valentine card. Love You Much was stamped in Riding Hood Red, then colored in with Blender Pens and Pacific Point ink. Do you like the fading in look? The background is the large heart stamped in Only Orange, stamped off twice, and then stamped on the Naturals White. The scalloped circles were stamped first, then punched with the Scallop Circle Punch. After that, I took my 1/8" circle punch (which is being discontinued!) and punched out all the scallops. I mounted Riding Hood Red Scallops behind them. I tried out the ribbon flower by pulling a thread on the taffeta, but it doesn't look so good in the pic. I promise that it looks better IRL. So that's it. Now you know all about this project. Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.

  2. Hi Julie! I am so glad I know you have a blog too! Your stuff is awesome!!!! I will read yours regularly too! Hooray, a blogging buddy!
    I was trying to email you the answer to the question you had about the paper on my blog, but I am not too terribly internet savvy, and I couldn't find your email, so I decided to just answer your question on todays blog! :)
    Then I thought I would try leaving you a message as a comment and hope that you see it!
