The card I have to share today is inspired by the sketch challenge on Sarah's Inkurable Stampers blog which also stipulates the use of at least 3 stamps. I really had no clue what to do when I started this card and it is a little different from what I first thought I might do - I guess I was limited by what I actually have. I thought I had a reasonable collection of things like stamps, but there is always more I
I started by embossing a love heart in gold from Stampin' Up! set Hearts and Posies onto black cardstock. I masked the heart and then stamped the Music Background from Victorine Originals and embossed it in silver. I placed the four squares onto red cardstock stamped with Darkroom Door French Script Background stamp in white pigment ink from Stampin' Up! and placed it onto the black card base. On the left is a Cuttlebug embossed piece which I stamped with a love heart. The Edwardian border punch used is from Fiskars by Cristina Re. The sentiment border from Pink Paislee Fancy Frames is embossed in black and the sentiment from Hero Arts set Treasure the Moments is again in white pigment ink from Stampin' Up! These two stamps seem made for each other! Finished off with a gold ribbon from my stash.
I just want to shout out to a wonderful person I have met out there in the blogging/crafty world with whom I have shared some information about the difficult time I have had this year. She is totally amazing and has been very supportive, encouraging and more than helpful these past few weeks. Thank you so much Zoe - you are one of a kind. xox
May your days be filled with inspiration,
