Love is in the Air

Happy Thursday everyone! 

I can't believe the cold temperatures in many parts of the country. I was watching the Atlanta ice storm yesterday as I have a son living there. Crazy! Stay warm and safe wherever you are.

I'm not sure why, but lately I am drawn to softer looks in my card making. I especially like the use of white on a single color. Maybe I'm hoping for an early spring. Another thing I like is how versatile many of the beautiful Valentine stamp and die sets are. Love is ALWAYS in the air. You can adapt most of these for anniversaries, birthdays, weddings or just a simple, I Love You card. This is one example of using this beautiful Simon Says Stamp heart wreath for a wedding card. 

By using a soft ink color on this bold geometric background stamp it transforms it into something quite elegant. Trying for different looks with the same supplies are probably one of the funnest and most addicting things about this crazy hobby. 

To finish it off, I white heat embossed the greeting on vellum and scattered some pearls and a little clear Wink of Stella on the hearts around the wreath. Have a beautiful day. 

Happy Stamping!!
