Stamp Simply-- Gotta share the LOVE!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, this week's Stamp Simply challenge courtesy of the fabulous Sharon Johnson is all about love!


Make any love themed card you'd like - it could be for Valentine's Day or for a wedding or anniversary, or even a LOVING birthday or thinking of you card - just show the LOVE!

For my card, I tried to challenge myself not to use hearts but find other ways to spread a bit of affection....


I stamped one of my newly released Impression Obsession stamps in Palette Noir ink and then colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen. Chalk around the outside of the image and then mat it up on an oval and scalloped oval Nestie! Add some paper piercing a strip of dp with a button and you're almost done! This stamp is part of a clear set designed by Sarah Phelps and the saying is also a part of that set. All of the papers are Crate Paper.

I did add a little razzle dazzle on the flowers with the help of some Stickles Diamond glitter glue.... And that, my friends is it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the gals on the Stamp Simply team did to feel the love! Click over to see Deb, Becky, Dee, Tammy, Janine, AJ, and Jennifer

Hope you make time for play time! Have a great weekend!

i have been looking at your "spring cards" and they are inspiring... i am trying to scrapbook since i feel motivated after looking at your creations and everyone elses.

btw, sorry for leading you astray. i forgot i don't work tomorrow. so don't come and see me at raffia- it'll be a waste of gas. i'll call you tomorrow.

again, you make it look so easy when you make your cards- they are so much fun!
