Gilded Valentine

Hello and happy Sunday or should I say Super Bowl Sunday.  We are not big football fans so besides just tuning in to the game (mostly for the commercials) nothing much is happening here…except cardmaking!

I am entering this card into these two challenges:


My colors are spot on for the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge.  However, I did a loose interpretation of the Freshly Made Sketches sketch…hope that was OK.  I think that is what is known as “creative license”.  If not, it still sounds good!

Front and center on this card is the beautiful flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  I absolutely love this flower.  I especially like to emboss it and color it using ink pads and a blender pen.  You can see another example of this on this card here.  This time I heat embossed it using gold embossing powder and colored it with Real Red, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink.  I then cut it out with my paper snips.  The sentiment is from the  Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  This is another set that I have used so much and can see using way beyond Valentine’s Day.

This little sentiment, also from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, has not seen any ink yet so I used it here.   I just added a little glittery goodness to the inside by punching the little heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Pack and adhering over the stamped heart.

I wonder if this card is more feminine or could it be for either gender…especially given the sequins.  I would love to hear your opinion on this.

Thanks so much for checking in today and if you are a football fan, I hope you have a fabulous Super Bowl Sunday!
