Love Is In the Air ,,,,, :-)

Good morning all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well and looking forward to joining in with our new theme over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-)

Simon Says Stamp

The Design Team, along with our Designer in the Spotlight for February, Linda, have made some amazing creations for your inspiration this week.

We are showcasing Prima Products this week, you don't have to use them but if you have some we would love to see them :-)

For my card I decided to make an easel one and used this lovely image from a Penny Black Clear set called J’aime Paris. what a handsome couple they make eh ,,, if a little thin !! :-) I coloured with me trusty copics, inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink and dotted Star Dust stickles to the flowers. I cut out the image using Spellbinders nesties and inked the scalloped edge with Victorian Velvet DI and then brushed Pink Perfect Pearls over the top, really shimmery IRL. I used the same technique for all the backing papers and what looks like a strip of ribbon with the punched hearts on !

The papers are Prima from a Sparkling Spring set and the gorgeous rose is also from Prima, it was white and already glittered but I sprayed it with a copic using my copic air brush so that it would match perfectly :-) Isn't it GORGEOUS !! ( I can't find the link to this particular flower set but this is similar

I framed the whole card using a Martha Stewart Double Loop PATP kit and I also used a MS Heart border punch too. It does look like this is stuck on wonky ,, but it is straight irl ,,, HONEST !! :-)

I finished with a few Hero Arts pearls, a Heart Swirl die cut, some bias tape and a brad from American Crafts.

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely Designer in the Spotlight, Linda, and the DT have made some ‘Love’ly cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see what they all did !! Smile
