I have been stamping for years and am excited to share and learn along with you.

Here is the card I made my husband for Valentines day:
and here are some close ups as well:
I used Tattered Rose and Old Paper Distress inks on this card and the rosette which I made with the Eyelet Pendant dies from Spellbinder. I also used the Labels 8 set to create the sentiment plaque up top. The heart I created by die cutting 5 hearts from a Sizzix set, 3 using the same colors as the rest of the card and 2 a matching peachy pink pearlescent cardstock. Some bits or ribbon and a button and done.
I made my son a tag instead of a card, he's a teen and the way to his heart is .... well FOOD! The ribbon down the middle is a sticker - looks real ribbon doesn't it. The heart tag and name plaque are Sizzix dies. I stamped several different "sayings" on the heart from a set that is no longer available. The embossed heart cardstock is more of thepearlescent cs in another color that I ran thru a heart embossing crimper and then cut into strips. The cherub is from a package of dies I got on clearance forever ago. Found out why the stuff was super cheap when I got home. Weird colors!! This cherub was originally green, ummm ick but a little acrylic paint and now I had a very shiny and beautiful cherub to use on my card.
Have a great weekend. I hope to have my Mardi Gras doll done and mailed out soon. Once the recipent has received it I can share some pics of her. I have received my MG doll and all I can say is WOW!! I was blown away when I opened her up and more than a little intimidated to create something even close to that level of "majesty" with my doll. Thank You.Thank You.Thank You.Pat aka CritterPortraits, what a true treasure she is!!
I will try to get some pics to show you of her as well but it is going to be dark, dreary & rainy all day today.
At least Texas is getting rain, we still need lots to refill the lakes around here.
