{Papertrey In Pink}


Happy Monday. Happy Monday is of an oxymoron in my opinion. Mondays are just a day to endure so you can get to Tuesday. HA!

Not to disappoint, I'm carrying on with my Valentine theme, and you will probably be happy to know that I'm just about finished making Valentine cards. It's just that I find it so easy to create cards that express love, appreciation, and admiration.

I used Papertrey Ink's Sweet Love set to create this card. Using a card base of Regal Rose I stamped SU's background stamp, Print Pattern. Then using the small heart from the Papertrey set I stamped hearts in the open spaces using white craft ink. After it dried, I was a little disappointed that the hearts look more pink than white...perhaps I should have embossed them. To give the base a little more dimension I dotted highlights using puffy paint. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White card stock using Regal Rose and mounted that onto a piece of Pretty in Pink scallop made with my Nestabilities.

The ribbon treatment are two different brands. The center stripe is ribbon I purchased at Michael's, and the Swirled Organza was purchased from Creative Impression. I loved this organza so much that I ordered every color they had at the time, and have only used it sparingly...don't ask me why...it must be that hoarding thing, but it's time to show it off.

I hope you have a wonderful day today. Thanks for looking in on me today!
