Love Is In The Air
As I am sitting here blogging away, all I can hear is the sound of little sleet balls bouncing off the window. I hope it clears up by morning - I have a busy day ahead of me at work tomorrow!
Tonight I am sharing the card that I made for this week's challenge over at the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog - Love Is In The Air. I have to tell you - I had so much fun making this card :) I just kept stamping and adding - I think I used up a quite a few of my dimensionals - LOL!
All of the stamps that I used for this card are by A Muse. I started with a blank piece of white card stock and began by stamping the A Muse - Wild Rose Branch repeatedly in Stampin' Up! - Old Olive. I then sponged around the edges in the same color to blend everything together. Next, I sewed my newly created background of leaves to a piece of designer paper from My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found - Madison Avenue. Then I cut out a heart using Nestabilities - Scalloped Heart with the same designer paper, tied a piece of Stampin' Up! Fancy Fibers - Hannah around it in a bow, and added it to the center of the card. I stamped the A Muse - Kissing Couple onto a piece of white card stock, colored using Copics - E51, RV32 and YG95, punched them out and added a small heart-shaped brad above - kiss kiss. I added some sponging around them in Stampin' Up! - Blushing Bride. The A Muse - Wild Rose was stamped, also using Blushing Bride, onto the white card stock, was cut out and added to the card using dimensionals. The same was done with some extra leaves - layering on top of the original image. Here is a close up so you can really see the layering:
Finally, to finish the card, I stamped A Muse - Love Is In The Air, cut it out by hand, added some sponging, and then attached it to the bottom corner. I like how it blends in with the greenery but still pops out and grabs your attention.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my card!
