Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Love

Image may contain: text
Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.  Please remember to click on the next person in the line up at the end of my post to continue enjoying all the wonderful projects in the hop.  

Our theme this month is Love: Anniversaries, Valentines, Weddings

This is my slightly unorthodox Valentines card for my much-loved husband!  He has never owned a pair of cowboy boots  - but I'm sure he won't mind the artistic licence!  Inside I will write "Thank you for choosing to put your boots under my bed!"

Perhaps slightly unorthodox colours for a Valentine card but, I hope, masculine!

The base card is Basic Gray, followed by a layer of Lemon Lime Twist.  I embossed a 2" strip of Lemon Lime Twist card with one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders and then swiped my Basic Gray ink pad across it.  I also sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink.

The image from the Country Livin' stamp set is stamped with Basic Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  I also added a small layer of Basic Gray cardstock.

Stampin' Dimensionals provide depth on this masculine Valentine Card

The hearts are cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate card.  The smaller set of hearts is embellished with a Real Red Enamel Shape.  The greeting on the Whisper White heart is from the Graceful Garden stamp set and the tiny Real Red heart is cut with one of the dies in the Umbrella Weather set of Framelits.  The heart is edged with Real Red ink.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed this card.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer - please see the list below and click on the next person on the list to hop through all of the people to see all of our projects.  You don't want to miss any!
