Love, vintage inspired love!

Pin It Now! I am so into the love cards lately. I just think that besides saying Merry Christmas, saying I Love You is the next sweetest sentiment ever.

I am crazy about the hand made ribbon flowers on  My mom recently donned a gorgeous poinsettia pin, and I ogled it for days.  She didn’t give it to me (LOLOLOL) but she did let me take pictures of it, and I used the inspiration to make this card with Hand Stamped Sentiments’ new sketch this week…

The ribbon flower is made entirely from Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon. I just used sponges and ink to color the ribbon to my liking in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake. I used SU’s adhesive rounds to work the flower until I got it the way I liked it - it’s very forgiving, and allows you to pull the ribbon up and reposition it.  I made the rosebud from the same ribbon, and colored the rhinestone with SU’s gold pen.
The stamp is a single sold in December, called Love Heart.  I plan to put together a card kit to sell this month…more about that later.  It’s cut out and the edges are adorned with Champagne Glass Glitter and Crystal Effects.  The card front is stamped with Ex Libris, which is rubbed with a Crumb Caked sponge and sprayed with Frost White Shimmer Paint.  The edge is embossed with Delicate Designs and hand trimmed.

I love sketch, and this one is simple and leaves so much room for creativity!
What do you see in the sketch?  Come and play along at HSS this week!
