I Love You

Scrap Our Stash's February challenge is to do a Love project. Go read all about it! With February and Valentine's Day just around the corner, this is the perfect project to put some color and warmth into our icy, cold winter days. I'm ready for the ice to just go away - every where I look at our flat New Jersey landscape, I see a bunch of snow mountains. Time for them to go away.

So here is my contribution by celebrating "Love" :)

I Love You
Stamps: (Fancy Phrases) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Momento - Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Thread - Black) Coats & Clarks; (scrap of yarn)

The heart is crocheted from my stash of scrap yarn. Here an up-close look:

I Love You

I used the same frame concept, inspired by the lovely Princess Belinda but instead of it being stamped, I drew mine out with pencil, pierced the frame, and back-stitched the entire thing with black thread.

Truth be told, this was a great card to make, since I could do a lot of it away from my actual craft work space. All I needed was my Momento black stamp pad, an acrylic block, my trusty Waltzingmouse Stamps, some adhesive and a piece of white card stock. I'm still in the process of trying to build my craft workspace together...So, thanks for hanging in there with me!
