Hi Blog Friends!
I thought I'd pop in here & show you what I've been working on...
I feel a little rusty, since I haven't posted for awhile. LOL
You should know of a challenge over at
It's their January Challenge:
Show us your AO Art!
(No theme this month- Anything Goes with AO Stamps!)
You can check here for all the details:
I LOOOOOVE their Vintage Images....
I ADORE the Valentines images & that would be the set,
Here's one of the cards I've made so far....
I colored her in with Prisma Color Markers.
I traced a tag for my image since I don't have a die this size.
I used the sketch from SCS- SC573
WHAT A SWEEEET IMAGE!
Look at all that SPARKLE!
I used 1/8" double sided tape (Score Tape), found on Amazon & Red Reactive Foil,
with my Mini Minc Machine.
(Santa was good to me this year! ;) )I used the Minc for the stripes & the hearts.
The hearts were foiled on Toner Paper & then die cut,
using SU- Mini Treat Bag (hearts).
For the inside:
I used one of the sentiments that comes with the set, Cutie Pie.
I also did a strip of foil inside.
My ribbon is from Ellen Hutson.
Satin Ribbon is always nice for Valentines!
So, what do you think?
I DO ADORE Vintage, & Vintage Valentines
are PROBABLY my MOST FAVORITE of ALL cards to make!
I think it's because it just takes you back to a simpler time.....
(Seriously, we NEED more companies to make more of these classic images!)
I DO HOPE you like & find the time to join us over at Artistic Outpost!
Floating on hearts here!
