Hi everyone - just sneaking in a little post while I'm on a business trip. I'm kicking it around in Austin, TX, this week, and I'm hoping I get to fly back on Friday. There is suppose to be a snow storm coming through the northeast and I hope we'll be able to get in.
Today at Little Tangles we are celebrating the month of: Valentines & Love.
So I hope you'll be able to make something inspiring that is heart-themed, heart-felt, or heart-warming. Like how I snuck those words in there? ;)
I made a window card and backed the inside with a washi & glitter tape heart. And I was enamoured by the aqua, red & black color combo.
Stamps: (Kindness Matters) Neat & Tangled
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko; (Jenni Bowlin - No. 3 Chili Powder) Ranger; (Perfec Match Pigment Ink - Hawaiian Shore) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Impression Plate - Woodgrain; Baker's Twine - Red) Papertrey Ink; (Stickers - Black) Basic Grey; (Glitter Tape) American Crafts; (Washi Heart Cloud) Freckled Fawn; (Nestabilities - Classic Hearts) Spellbinders
I felt inspired by a bunch of garlands that I have been seeing in my embellishment stash. So I decided to create my own. I love the little circles from "Kindness Matters," which I stamped off, glued to some Baker's Twine and embellished my card with.
To give the card base a little more texture I ran a woodgrain impression plate through my Big Shot. I know the picture doesn't really show it well, but if you squint hard, you can see the lines (at least that's what I tell myself).
Lastly the sentiment is just a dive into my alpha stash. These are some Basic Grey micro letters. Perfect size for this card.
I hope you'll stop by the other girl's creations. And in case you need more incentive to bust our your creative supplies...A free stamp set is at stake...
One lucky challenge winner is going to get two sets of goodies. So jealous...
