Love to You

Wow, it's been a while since I lasted posted a card to my blog. Today's card was made for the Featured Stampers challenge over at Splicoast Stampers. Featured Stamper is Karen and you can check her gallery out here.

Here is the card I selected from Karen's gallery to case.I kept the basic concept of the card design. Here are the changes that I made to the card:

* changed the orientation of the card* changed the heart
* changed the DP
* changed the sentiment

Heart from the Cherish stamp set of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps was stamped onto white cs with Onyx Black Versafine and colored with Tombow markers. Cut the heart and then added some Sepia Liquid Embossing. While the embossing was drying I prepared the background of the card. Base of the card is DP from Basic Grey and this was layered on top with black cs and DP from the Classic Paper Designs of Crafty Secrets. Punch the reverse side of the DP from the Classic Paper Designs with a MS Lace border punch and stamped the sentiment from Stampendous. Green center strip of DP from my scraps was fan folded and distressed with Black Soot distressing ink. Tied a dotted ribbon around the card. The edges of the different layers of the card was all distressed with Black Soot Once the liquid embossing dries I matted the heart onto DP from Basic Grey and then black cs. Hand sewed all around the heart with pink thread.

Stamps: Cherish Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps, sentiment Stampendous
Paper: Classic Paper Designs Crefty Secrets and scrap DP from Basic Grey
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine and various Tombow markers
Accessories: ribbon, Sepia Liquid embossing, MS Lace border punch and thread
