Welcome to Day Two of our Blog Hop! I hope your enjoying the everyone's creativity as much as I am, I'm so inspired and have lots of new items now added to my wish list, lol, I'm so glad it's SAB, it's a great time to stock up on supplies! and who doesn't love getting free stuff :)
Today I have a couple of Valentines I created with a very vanilla card stock base....I was trying to achieve a more vintage look to them. For my first card I first lightly spritzed the front base with some smooch spray, then I added a layer of dsp. I created the banner using the new stamp set in our Spring Mini and the coordinating die's Hearts a Flutter.....those banner shapes are going to work well with so many other holidays and occasions, the possibilities are endless, I think I'm going to be using this set a lot.
I attached the banner shapes to twine and added some bling. On the inside I stamped a couple of hearts from the set.
For my second card I first took some dsp, it was vanilla with some design and journaling lines, did some masking with some hearts I cut out, spritzed the layer with the same smooch spray (you can see the spray has a little shimmer in the photo) only I did a heavier layer so that the heart shapes would show up well, once dry I added it to a red cs base.
The other images were stamped, but out and attached with dimensionals. The inside is stamped with Happy Valentines Day.
I really love the way this technique turned out and I will be using it again......in fact I created a card with that technique today that I will be sharing later in the hop, so tune in again :-) Thanks for stopping by........
