I love you

Welcome to the 7 KIDS Valentine Hop! 
Are you ready for hearts and flowers? Oh, and don't forget love!
Well...hop around and you are gonna see lots of all three!

Here is my card:




I decided to make a pretty Valentine for my sweet hubby! 
I stamped some manilla tags with an old text stamp (Hero Art??) first and then cut some flowers with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garden Die Strip.  I inked each flower with Picked RaspberryWorn Lipstick and Tea Dye Distress inks. The flowers were held together with Tim Holtz fasteners.
The hearts were cut with one of my new favorite die sets by Spellbinders Media Mixage called Hearts One. I cut the largest heart with some paper from the WildFlower (Carta Bella) and the middle heart with another manilla tag. I stenciled both hearts with Tea Dye Distress ink and the MPD Graduated Diamonds(MFT) stencil. I also cut 3 smaller hearts, inked them and then added some Aged Gold (Stampendous) embossing powder to them to give them some texture.
Before putting everything together on the card base, I distressed all the edges of the papers with my Tim Holtz Distress tool. I think this gives the card a nice vintage feel.

I hope you will all share your Valentine projects with us!

Mackie, your card is absolutely stunning! It is so pristinely designed and artistic (to steal Kelly's perfect word). The flowers are incredible and I love the stenciling. Each accent is in its perfect place, which is far from easy to do. Fantastic work on this heartfelt creation!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Gail said...

This card contains my favorite colors and caught my attention right away. I love the papers and the flowers that have the printing on them are awesome...it gives a nice dimension to the flowers rather than have plain paper flowers. I think I need to do more cards like this one...without a 'cute' image since this is so much more grown-up than my normal cards are. This is elegant and beautiful and I'm going to remember the trick of using printed paper for my flowers. Hugs, Gail

Monika/Buzsy said...

Sue Lelli said...

HI!

Earlier I had asked you how you get your paper to look distressed. I just seen in this one you put with your Tim Holtz Distress Took. Yeah! I've gotta look for one of those little puppies and try it. Thanks for showing us your work.
