Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Hello and good morning! It's my turn as hostess over at the Color Throwdown and since Valentine's Day is coming up, I chose a romantic color palette and inspiration photo for us to create with this week.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Simply Jane, The Sweet Life and Think Big Favorites to create a feminine looking birthday card. I started out with a crumb cake card base, then a panel of vanilla and for my background, regal rose which I stamped with roses from The Sweet Life set. I then stamped my sentiment along the bottom and added my banner. After that I die-cut, stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder the frame from the Simply Jane set and added that and my die-cut and stamped cameo. The last thing that I added was some small pearls to the cameo and my die-cut and stamped rose and leaves which I popped up using foam tape.
