Hope you are all having a good weekend and you aren't affected by the floods or snow, Oh gosh I hate this time of year when people have such a hard time. I hope none of you are affected too badly and you are still able to get about. I am quite passionate about looking out for the elderly in your area so if you know of someone living alone who may need some help with a hot meal or a hot blanket do check in , I know we are all naturally like this us crafters for some reason we all love our pets and families and are nurturers aren't we. Better to be over cautious than not cautious at all I think.
Anyway back to today's gorgeous stamps , I consider myself very lucky to be given Visible Image stamps, they are such good quality and extremely deeply etched so give an amazing print every time.
This month sees the start of a new challenge over on The Visible Image blog and the theme of course is loooooooooooove. hehe..So back into the room of stash I went and created this pretty little number for inspiration .I've done my usual step by step photos so here is this little cards story.
Visible Image stamps.card.wooden heart,ribbon,embossing powder,bella rose die cut swirl(leaves cut off).1 Dazzler.A few white and clear embellies. That's about it other than foam and glue.
Here's the step by step.
I started with some red card from Creative expressions, some versamark embossing ink and The Bronte border script stamp from Visible image which I love. I stamped all around the edges , no overlapping this time girls.
The Bronte border onto the heart and again used the white embossing powder, I used it all around the edges too. Once set I used a quickie glue pen all around the edges and made it sparkle like crazy, it so hard to pick up sparkle on camera but the surface looks like a fruit pastelle (only way I can describe it, relate it to a sweetie haha)
Voila a love themed card for Visible Image.
So now if you are lucky enough to own any of their stamps why don't you make a little something and enter into the challenge , the rules are really simple, no digi stamps and your item must contain at least one Visible Image stamp, the winner is chosen at the end of the month and you win £20 to spend on any set or sets of stamps you like from The Visible Image online shop and there are some gorgeous stamps there, I love them all. and soooo reasonable too.
I used.Bronte Border Live Laugh Love
They are both such useful stamps and I know I will use them over and over.
I wanted to again thank you all for your kind words yesterday when answering my question about the free card giveaways. You were all concerned for me and I think it was very lovely of you all. I am not sure I will do weekly just yet but I have plenty to give away so we will see how it goes and get that up and running.
Now don't forget to go enter your cards in the challenges and I'd love to see one of my ladies win it, I'd be like a proud mother hen. I felt exactly like that when you all sent in your emails to the shows haha.
Right have a great Sunday and I will will speak to you all later I am sure.
