A Bloomin' Valentine for You

Greetings all!

As promised, you're in for a week of projects using the Bloomin' Hearts thinlits die. First up is a traditional Valentine.

  • I started with a piece of heavy Whisper White card stock, a sponge and ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and Crumb Cake. I randomly colored the card stock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Bloomin' Hearts thinlit.

  • An embossed Pink Pirouette panel was layered onto a piece of crumb cake.

  • I used my scalloped tag topper punch to give shape to my background piece.

  • The Bloomin' Heart is popped up with dimensionals and embellished with a vintage piece of ribbon and pearls from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit that are tied with a piece of silver cord.

  • The sentiment is from the Bloomin' Love stamp set, fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.

It was a fun card to make, but certainly not the image I started with. I envisioned using a doily in the backgroung. I know I have them, but they are MIA in my craft room. Does that ever happen to you? I'm sure they'll show up at some point in time. With that vision in mind, I pulled out my spider web doilies - I found them, no problem! Using the back side, which is white, I played around with that for awhile, even sponged it, but it wasn't working for me. That's the fun of creating - you never know what your final product is going to be!

Please let me know I'm not alone! What is one thing that has gone MIA in your craft area? Where did you find it? I'm thinking there are some pretty funny stories out there!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Pal's January blog hop, From the Heart. I know you'll find LOTS of inspiration from my talented Pals!
