Love Stamp

So, it's been a week now and there's no sign of this flu going away! *sigh* But *smiles* that doesn't stop me from getting messy and having my mind whirl with new designs that I want to make and want to create!

This particular card was another that I made for Valentine's Day. The little "love stamp" topper was die cut using a Cuttlebug die and embossing folder onto red card. I used Co-Ordinations range of card because I wanted to sandpaper it and reveal a white core to give it an aged, distressed look. Once that was done, I handstamped a piece of white card using a Memento Dew Drop ink pad in Rhubarb and Anna Griffin's rose background stamp, which I then distressed the edges of with distress inks. I die cut a piece of black card and then matted and layered all my elements onto these lovely scratched effect backing papers from Trimcraft and finished off with black adhesive gem stones.


  1. Hi Em. ;) I really love when you offset red with black. It makes for a very beautiful card!

  2. A brilliant bit of invention on the stamp...the aged look of it is especially nice! Once again your use of distressed ink really adds that special touch that I love! :) A card that has to be seen, to be believed! ;)

    A beautiful card, baby...that I'm CERTAIN was well received! :D <333
