Fun photo, isn't it? All about that Heart Day coming up :).
I used one of the new stencils that STAMPlorations is now selling, Hearts All Over. I have to say, this was an easy stencil to use -- not too thin, and a little bigger then 4.25 x 5.50. Makes it easy to tape down and color it. I did a semi ombre effect with pink and red. The bg chevrons are from Inspired By Stamping, Background Basics 2. I layered my heart 3 times for depth and sponged around it too. I am also entering this into the CAS on Sunday Challenge; stencil, and Inkspirational Challenge; ombre.
I look forward to seeing how the photo inspired you! Pop on over to JUGS, check out the Team samples, and then play along! We love our players :)
For the next 2 week challenge for the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #2 is Snowflakes.
Well apparently, I can't read as I only used 1 snowflake. Whoops. I made a self made stencil and used some embossing paste. Before it dried, I added on 2 colors of glitter. My sentiment is PTI Signature Christmas.
We hope that you join in this fun challenge over at One Layer Christmas Card blog. It is so rewarding, come next November/ December, to have your Christmas cards all done and ready to send out.
I had to share with all of you what I did today. I drove up to Rebecca Deeprose's [Paper Primrose] house in Scottsdale to meet her. [About an hour from my house] We used to be on a team together last year and had mentioned getting together back then, but never did. Well, since I have the time now, when Rebecca contacted me and asked to get together I said - Heck Yeah!
I have to tell you, what a fabulous lady this stamper is! We chatted so much, we never did get to create anything, but she sure is interesting! Don't get me started with her FABULOUS stamp room! Oh m Gee - I could of spent hours just looking at all she has. And organized! Oh heck yes. Puts me to shame ;). Over all, I had a blast visiting with Rebecca and I am thrilled to get together again - this time our goal is to have a project to actually make.
When I went to leave, she hands me a bag and says "Just a little thank you for driving up to see me" -- A little thank you? - I don't think so.....people I felt like it was Christmas!
So many goodies I couldn't fit it all on my photography pad. [Yeah, this is layered!] Plus, she gave me a PTI set, and a small glass cube!! [You will be seeing this cube in my future photos I'm thinking!]
I wanted to post a public thank you to Rebecca! You are amazing and I am so glad we were able to meet face to face. Thank you so much for all the fun goodies!! I am looking forward to our future get together and creating something. Did I mention she is extremely talented too? Just check out her blog -- Can you say - WOW?
Stampers are one of the most generous people I have the pleasure of knowing! I love this hobby....
Thanks for stopping by~
