Stamping 411 – Filled with Love again

Yes, time again for Stamping 411's sketch challenge!  Don't the weeks go by FAST? 

 

I love this set in the Holiday Mini.  It almost gets overlooked in the back because Valentine's Day seems so far away!  I'm secretly hoping that Stampin' Up! keeps it on the carryover list, but it doesn't appear that they will.

 

 

I started with a base of Pretty in Pink cardstock and layered on Whisper White.  Then I adhered some Sweet & Sour Specialty Designer Paper on the bottom of Rose Red cardstock.  I made a bow from the Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon to hide the seam.  Then I used my Stampin' Write Markers in Rose Red and Pear Pizzazz to ink up the flower in Stampin' Up!'s Filled with Love stamp set and stamped it on Whisper White.  I punched it out with the Decoratiive Label Punch.  To make the mat behind it, I punched two more Decorative Labels out of Pretty in Pink and trimmed them to fit as layer behind the Whisper White.  I stamped Feb 14 in Rose Red on Whisper White, then punched with the 3/4" circle punch and layered on a 1" circle of Pretty in Pink.  I popped these up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

Finally, I added a couple Rhinestone Jewels to the tops of the flowers and decided that the area above the bow looked empty, so added the greeting from Filled with Love in Basic Black.

 

I think it made a pretty, feminine card and I think I'll save it for my mom!

 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators did this week!

What a lovely soft and feminine card, Connie! That paper from Sweet and Sour is so pretty. I might have to think again about ordering that paper.
