I'm so glad you came by for this awesome hop! I've been having a blast stamping some Valentine cards using the Accent Essentials: Arrows set, combined with the December release stamps!
This first card is actually pretty simple to make. The background is sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Once that was dry, I stamped the arrows in a pattern using black ink. The heart is also stamped in black, and popped up with foam tape. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! I wish you could see the detail of the glimmer mist...it has such a pretty shimmer to it when the light hits it just the right way. Couldn't capture that with the camera unfortunately.
My second card has lots going on, LOL! This is totally not my usual style, and I'm really not too crazy about it, but thought I would share it with you anyway.
The pattern on the right side was created using the solid arrow shape from the set. The tiny hearts are from the Flower Power #3 set. Valentine and the arrows are heat embossed with white powder. I colored on top of the arrows with pink colored pencils. The vertical strip is silver glitter tape.
I hope I inspired you in some way today! Enjoy hopping along! Your next stop is Ren-Yi. Be sure to comment on each stop because one lucky winner will receive the Accent Essentials: Arrows stamp set, AND a £5 gift certificate to Uniko Studio!!
