This one is for my real Valentine! Now, as you all know, I am not a professional and I do NOT have any connections to anyone in the business of cardmaking or scrapbooking. Since I recently got a bunch of new followers, I thought I would restate that. With that said, I recently took a Clean and Simple class online. One of the contributors was Kristina Werner. About that time, she had put together a card kit for Simon Says Stamp. I just had to buy it! There is a kit every month by her or a subscription where the cost is a little less. One of the reasons, other than the fact that I knew I would love whatever she put together, was that a winter set of Tim Holtz' distress inks was included! I don't know about the March kit as I have so much stuff that I am trying not to buy more just now!! This card was made from that kit. I know she gathered lots of really neat stuff for this kit and I was dying to get into it. She also included an 8 1/2 x 11 photo sheet of cards made with this kit! So mostly the front of my card is her doing. A few of my own touches, but I just love the stuff this gal does!! The inside of the card is an older Tilda that I just adore. It used to be much harder for me to color her hair, but I guess that old adage about practice is true! I punched out a few little hearts and glued them on. That part of the stamp never seems to stamp perfectly and I thought this was a better solution than masking out the ones that don't stamp as nicely as I want them to.
I did something very new to me, I cut out the spellbinder's die and THEN stamped and colored it! That tiny little stamp is from a set from Stampingscrapping.com. It is to go with a spellbinders label set. It is also one of the first stamp sets I ever bought!! Now you know I had only been scrapping for a year at the most before I started my blog. For those of you interested in my stamp storage - hang in there. I have to find time to try unmounting my stamps before I can pass it on. Need to find a little more time.
So here is the card!
