Simply Stampin' and St.Luke's -
all in one!
The Simply Stampin' challenge this week is 'Heartfelt' and St.Luke's for this month is 'Love & Lace' so I thought I would combine the two. Both have a Valentine's theme but more on that later!
I used a retired SU heart stamp which I stamped in Versamark, heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing powder and then cut out with my heart punch. Another heart was punched from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the embossed heart was layered on top. As I do not have any lace I improvised and made a lace border to go across the card with the Eyelet Punch - hope I can get away with that! The punched hearts were positioned on top of the border and the sentiment was added. The 'love' sentiment is a stamp from the Outlined Occasions set, free with an order of £45 during SAB, and the 'with' is picked out from the middle of another stamp coloured with a Cherry Cobbler marker.
I am a bit of a cynic when it comes to Valentine's Day - is it just me who thinks it's yet another opportunity for the retailers to cash in? Whilst walking round my local supermarket the other day I found myself asking "what can't you get that's heart shaped"? I think it's lost it's meaning somewhere along the way - but that's just me being miserable I guess :0)
On a different subject - the arrival of snow. This was the scene that greeted me this morning - very pretty I grant you -so long as you can stay inside and just look at it! Oh well better don the wellies and get out shovelling. Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
