Hello! It’s Wida here today, sharing another card featuring new stamps and stencils from the Valentine’s Day 2015 release. My card also has a little of this and a little of that. Ever buy those cute embellishments and then think, now when am I gonna ever use these? THIS IS THE TIME! Get them out! Play with the placement and color choices and USE them! I used to not want to give them away because they were so cute, but then I had so much stuff, it was just sad. Sharing the goodness you buy is part of the fun. I had to learn to let go of the fact that it might get thrown away.
Let it go!
Let it go!
It will be ok! If it really pains you, you could make sure to give it to a recipient who will appreciate it… :) Like other bloggers and cardmakers. Anyhoo, let’s talk about this card. Sadly this card took a long time because the ideas in my head didn’t seem to pan out. I think my ideas get slower the older I get. BUT, I am happy with the result, so I guess it was worth it.
The flower is from a brand new stamp set from the BasicGrey + Hero Arts J’Adore collection called Hello Love. I colored the flower using a Copic marker first. Then I went back and colored it in a bit with colored pencils. I embellished it with some pearls. It REALLY made it stand out, don’t you think?
It’s hard to tell in the photograph, but the gray banner is dry embossed using the new Heart Pattern stencil, also from the J’Adore collection. I enjoy looking at a card and seeing more and more subtle detail.
I hope you give away or USE some of your goodie stash this week! Just leaves room for MORE stuff, so it’s a win win! Hehe!
