Valentine Flower



Good Morning! It is so bitterly cold today, as it has been all weekend, but a warm up is heading this way!

Today's card is made for my Splitcoast Bloggers Group #6. This is our very first challenge. Linda picked the first challenge to be a sketch.

I am calling this my Valentine Flower Card, I love this flower stamp it is from Penny Black . It has to be one of my all time favorite stamps. I don't think you can make a bad card with this stamp. So later on it might be my Easter stamp or my Summer stamp or.....you get the idea!!!

I started with a base of riding hood red and followed that with a piece of whisper white and layer some designer paper onto the white, the paper is from the Bella Rose DS pack from SU. My layers at the bottom start again with white that has one edge punched with the scallop edge punch, followed by a layer of riding hod red and then a piece of white taffeta ribbon. Next comes the main image layer, I inked up the flower stamp with some lipstick red and warm red colorbox chalk ink and added some warm brown for the flower center and used a SU marker in old olive to color in the stems and leaves. I stamped the flower 4 times, inking up the stamp each time. The sentiment is from the All Holidays set and is stamped in the corner with black stazon ink. I layered the main panel with some riding hood red and white and popped it up with some dimensionals. I then added some tiny silver sticky rhinestones in two corners.

I really think you could use this card for Valentine's or for any other occasion you like. The stamp is really versatile. I have made cards with it in alot of different colors, purple, yellow, pink, red and even brown.



That's all for today, thanks for stopping by, have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
