Valentine's Day Cards


We're having an art mingle in our England Stampers yahoogroup, and these are the Valentine's cards that I am making for the recipients.

The cards feature one of my favorite Stampin' Up stamps: If the Halo Fits. I have decided to use the sentiment stamps from another SU set: For a Friend.

The angel is simply colored with alcohol markers. A piece of SU Groovy Guava ribbon compliments the designer cardstock.

Lilac Lemon Lovely


Happy New Year!

It's been a while since my last post as my family and I have been thoroughly enjoying the holidays. As it has been snowing for more than 12 hours today, it looks like our holidays have been slightly extended. Dear son managed a day back at school yesterday, but we are all well and truly snowed in today.

Before the snowfall, I managed to mail off this New Year's card to all of my wonderful friends in my stamping and scrapping class. The card features this lovely art deco image, which is on one of the stamp sets created by my friend Beckie of Lilac Lemon Designs.


The image was colored with Copic markers, and then I antiqued the image with glimmer spray and pearlescent paints.

I just can't say enough about this stunning stamp. I love it! Thank you so much Beckie for gifting me with this set at Christmas :-).
