There's been a lot of beautiful pink/red, valentine's type artwork around for this set - it's so pretty and elegant! But I'm just not really a Valentine's kind of stamper. I go for the lollipop toppers with Animal faces on them, not the fancy, romantic, gushy cards. I like to look at them, but it's just not my stamping cup of tea, ya know? So what am I gonna do with these 13 beautiful stamps?
I know! I'll turn to my old friend, Autumn Garden color palette. I swear, my favorite color is purple, but Sunflower and Goldrush are some of my go-to colors. Anyhow, I stamped that lovely loopy border onto Desert Sand cardstock, then used my awesome Corner Rounder to create big scalloped borders. I made a little waistband of that Hound's tooth print from the Splendor Packet, and buttoned it up on the side with some craft buttons. I stamped a couple of hearts in the Goldrush and detailed them with our Glitter Glitz - love that stuff! I framed up the top with some Goldrush cardstock, adding a bit of Goldrush ink speckle to the inner frame, and that beautiful LOVE sentiment. Then I added a rolled paper flower, which I hand cut, then rolled on my piercing tool and glued the heck out of with Liquid Glass. Once it was almost dry I smashed it with an acrylic block and painted it with more Glitter Glitz. While I love paper flowers, this one was a very THICK flower technique, so this is a hand-delivery type card for sure!
