From the Heart Blog Tour


Can you believe it!!  I almost missed this!  I've been bustin' my buns trying to come up with a cool card and, by golly, I think I dood it!!! I have so few "Valentine" images that this was a difficult card.  I wasn't about to use the one I made for next week's Paper Wings Blog Tour so....    Anyway!


What do you think??  I used Mimi (replaced) and More Mimi SWIC and ribbon.  I stamped the branch from the Sprigs set in Momento Tuxedo black then colored the hearts with Copic marker R85. I used a PrismaColor pencil and OMs (odorless mineral spirits) on the stems.  I used my Super Jumbo & Mega Scalloped Oval punches, the Corner Chomper, and my Crop-a-Dile for corners, eyelets, etc.


I found these little "loops" in my stash.  They're similar to these and may even be them but mine were not in the proper package to be sure but the similarity is definitely there.  The phrase is from the Love You Hostess level B set.


I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the center panel hearts.  What, were you worried I didn't??  You KNOW it's my favorite bling maker!

Here's more cool angel projects for this tour:
