Wednesday, 9 February 2011


It's the 9 February only a couple of days until Valentine and it seem's everyone has got the bug to create a Love or Valentine card.

I have chosen one of the Sarah Kaye stamps I have and haven't used for some time so thought I give my crafting room a bit of a blitz and get out the Sarah Kaye stamps.

The image is my favourite stamp by Sarah Kaye and what better than using her stamp called "FIRST KISS".


Medium:  Copics and prisma pencils.  Gold calligraphy pen for border edging and a fine black liner for creating the pattern effect.

Papers:  The papers were some from Create and Craft I had a part of a unseen multi-buy.  I had no idea of whether I would ever find a use for this paper depicting brickwork and a rusty metal door.  But I thought it works well with the coloured image.  The plain cardstock was from Crafters Companion.
Dies used:  Were all from the Marianne range of dies.

Punch:     I used a EK Success border punch for border.
Embellishments:  Pink heart, Tiny paper flowers and sequin flowers (QVC).  Flat back pearls (Quitoxic Paperie)

I hope you like the way this turned out as a different take on the traditional valentine cards.
Best wishes,
