Love Fest Day 9 ,,, A Little Love :-)

Hi all :-)  We are already up to Day 9 of the Love fest Event over on the Splitcoast Stampers Website so I am sort of almost keeping up :-) 


Day 9 is hosted by Taylored Expressions and they are asking us to make a small set of cards no bigger than 3" X 3"
I don’t have any of the company’s stamps so I decided to make a set using the very cute Simon Exclusives Boston Terrier Love stamp and die set :-)


I stamped and die cut the image and coloured with copics, I used his little accessory stamps and gave 2 a rather dashing dickie bow and 2 a fetching scarf , these were cut from Fabscraps Classic paper. I LOVE these papers ,, they are a bit more expensive ,, but sooo luscious :-)

I used some not very patterned designer paper and inked the edges with stormy sky and forest moss distress ink. I used the fence die from a Where The heart Is set to cut some Woodgrain Card and inked this with Vintage Photo ink.  I stamped some grass using a Hero Arts stamp and added my fave Star Dust Stickles The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I used a Simon Exclusives ‘Talk Bubbles’ die to finish :-)


Which do you prefer ?? Scarf or Bow ,,, lol :-)

Love Fest Day 8 :-)

Hi :-) I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend :-)

Day 8 of the Love Fest Event is hosted by Unity Stamps Co and they have this fabulous photo inspiration for us to follow ,,,


I really liked the photo and wanted to try to copy it as much as possible onto my card.


I used a piece of delicately patterned paper and stamped over it using the large rose stamp from the set and embossed with versamark ink and clear powder. I then used  Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo Distress Inks over the top, before distressing the edges. I used a Memory Box Honeyblossom Sprig die, some gems and a liberal sprinkling of star dust stickles. I coloured a strip of Crinkle Ribbon with the same inks, tied a bow and popped on there with glossy accents.  I finished with a ‘Hello’ from the same set.


Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one  :-)

 I just have one more card to make now for the Love Fest and then its finished !! ,,,,, back soon ! :-)
