with a "with love from me to you" card using Sweet Dixie Spring Sentiments paper pad, Dovecraft Back to Basics heart doily edged with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet distress ink, stamped hearts, stamped sentiment, ribbon and little daisies cut from the backing paper.


Using a 5x5 scalloped card, First editions black out paper, red pearls, The image is from the greeting farm Cutesy Anya, coloured with spectrum noir illustrator pens all put together with collall glue and 3D gell to make her stand out from the rest of the card.
The little hearts around the edge and the main sentiment are from stampin' up sealed with love stamp set. If you would like to find out more about Stampin' Up please feel free to email or message me :)

Using  'Hugs & Kisses' stamped image from the Everyday In Moonbeam Meadow, stamped using Versafine onyx black. Coloured using various Tim Holtz distress inks onto 'Ranger' watercolour paper. Using a '5" square white card blank'  covered with 'Floral Muse' design papers by Dovecraft all stuck together using 'Collall' all purpose glue

I used a 6 x 6" card blank and some First Edition Botanical Notes Papers, I have distressed the edges of everything and inked them with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The butterflies are the Flit and Flutter dies from the Sara Davies Butterfly Lullaby Signature Collection and the flourish is the Fancy Flourishes die from the Sara Davies Butterfly Lullaby Signature Collection.  The sentiment is from the Big Sentiments stamp set stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink.  Everything has been put together using Collall All Purpose Glue and Collall Glue Gel.

I jumped right into the love theme this month! I used the adorable Moonbeam Meadow stamp and inked the sky with Distress Ink. Teamed with these gorgeous Dovecraft Bright Spark Papers and White Pearls. Finished with Glossy Accents over the sentiment Die cut to give it a shiny plastic look.


There's nothing like a heart to say love! Using a 6x6 card blank I took inspiration from these fabulous Story Teller papers from First Edition - such rich colours with glittery gem effects and some pearlecents too - they're gorgeous.  I die cut some hearts and using a whole stack of papers layered them up inside and out using Collall all purpose glue and some Collall 3D glue gel for added dimension.  I then embellished with  some lovely Dovecraft Bohemian sequins - perfect with those purples and pinks in the papers.  The cute little peg is from Dovecraft
Finally the sentiment also from Dovecraft stamped on the little diecut heart finished it off perfectly
