Love Recipe

One of my favorite blog sites "Our Daily Bread."
They have some of the most beautiful stamps and die

They have a project challenge this week that involves using
the theme of love and incorporating the colors of pink
or red and valentine's. I have been working on Valentine cards this
weekend, so I already had some ready.The pink and brown card I used
"Kissing Booth" line of paper.
I had the 6x6 pad and cut out the little hearts and used them as the
petals on all 3 flowers. I centered pink Prima flowers in the middle
of each of the petals. I finished if off with a heart punch and a sentiment
from ODBD.

I love "toile", so when I saw this stamp, I had to
have it. I embossed the background with vintage
white embossing powder. The center heart was
stamped with red "Stazon" and I embossed the edges
with gold embossing powder.

This last card, I used a combination of ribbons
and flowers I had on hand. I used my "Zutter"
distress tool for the first time, and it makes
distressing edges so easy.

Hope you all enjoy and have a great Valentine's Day!

  6. Hi~
    I saw that you were the winner over at ODBD today, and I just had to see your card! What a surprise to see several. I love the way you placed the ODBD stamp on the first one. Those flowers are amazing!

    I really love the center on the 2nd card. I am quite curious how you embossed just one part of an image. It is a wonderful Vintage card.

    I really, really like the stamp in the center of the last card! I haven't seen one with 2 different looks in one stamp. (If that's what you used...maybe you used 2 stamps and put them together?) It looks stunning however you did it!

    Congratulations again! I hope you will stop by and visit the He IS Able blog. We give away 1-5 cards weekly to a randomly chosen commenter.

    He IS Able!
