In the meantime, this week at DYSU we have a challenge with the most appropriate theme: Love. Ready to get you in the Valentine's mood...
Here is a card using some stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I also used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge as my inspiration.
This card uses two stamps sets: Pic Nic Patters and Fancy Phrases and is made with my Valentine in mind.
Stamps: (Pic Nic Patters; Fancy Phrases) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - True Black, Fresh Linen, Pure Poppy) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink; (Versamark; Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Nestablities - Classic Hearts, Small Classic Circles, Scalloped Classic Circle - Small) Spellbinders; (Impression Plates - Polka Dot Basics II) Papertrey Ink; (Rhinestones) Recollection; (Tiny Twinkles - Multicolor) Taylored Expressions
This is a fun, little shaped card, using some good classic Nestabilities as its base shape. I stamped one pattern from Pic Nic Patterns with Black onto the Vintage card stock; then another pattern from Pic Nic Patters on the Black card stock with Versamark. It's pretty faint in this picture, but the striped pattern can also be seen slightly on the flower.
The heart has some polka dot texture, and I decided to mask the stamp "we love You" from Fancy Phrases to make this an extra special card for my Valentine.
Hope you like this little creation. Hop over to the DTs samples and see what kind of Love inspirations they have for you. And since all of you will have a fabulous Valentines Day, I know you have something to play along in our challenge.
