Have I Told You Lately?

Hello! We hope you had a nice weekend. We have lots of gorgeous inspiration coming your way this week, and there’s definitely love in the air with Valentine’s day approaching! Jane is here on the blog today sharing a gorgeous romantic card featuring our fabulous Always + Forever stencil and a love-ly sentiment…

For my make today I decided to make a “Love” themed card. This design would work well not just for a Valentine card but for a card to send to someone you love.

This is what I got up to;

I sprayed a piece of A4 mixed media card  with cracked pistachio, fossilized amber, mowed lawn and candied apple distress stain sprays. When dry I cut it down to a 5 1/4″ square.

I put the Always and Forever stencil in place and blended spiced marmalade distress ink through it give a golden glowing image.

I then added a little more ink to the background.

I stamped the book stamp from the Free your Imagination set once onto inky mop up card and again on plain white card. I cut out just the top of the book on the white book.

I stamped some of the hearts from the Have I Told You set

and then one of its lovely sentiments. For a finishing touch I added a little glitter overlay pen and Glossy accents to some of the hearts.

Here is my finished card


love | romance | sentiment stamps | anniversary | valentine | wedding

rubber clear stamps | book | inky bird | feather | quill | free your imagination

Bye for now,

This is such a beautiful romantic card Jane! Fabulous ‘love story’ design with the book stamp. Thank you ♡

Forever Love | Grungy Rose Stamp

Hi! We are back with another gorgeous project to inspire you today! Lynda Hall has created a stunning mixed media card with our FOREVER LOVE set which includes a gorgeous grungy rose stamp, barbed wire and complementary elements…

It’s my turn to share a little Visible Inspiration today and with January drawing to a close, my thoughts have turned to cards for Valentines Day. The recently released ‘Forever Love’ set is perfect for such an occasion.

I began with a gelli print that I had previously created with the ‘Meshing Around’ stencil. A great start for some lovely texture.

I defined the circular edge to the stencil with a light application of Distress ink to add another layer.

I added some stamping with the script stamp from the ‘Scripted Streets’ stamp set, than stamped and embossed the large rose and border stamps with my stamping platform, which enabled me to line them up perfectly, then added the sentiment.

I stamped and coloured the large and small roses and fussy cut out.

Using 3d glue gel I layered them up, and added highlights with a white pen.

To finish I coloured the skulls in white, and added some black and white splatters of watered down acrylic paint.

Wowee this is amazing Lynda! We love the gorgeous pink and purple tones, and the layered roses look fabulous against your wonderful background!
