Love Recipe

The first week back at work has been very busy, school starts always are, in a good way! But nevertheless, the weekend feels as an oasis for some blog visiting and crafting! Glad to have you here!

It'll soon be time to for Valentine cards and we have the perfect recipe at the Creatalicious Challenge; we want to see Punched Border, Ribbon, Flowers and Bling. The Love theme is optional.

Check out our blog for the teams fantastic projects, they're very talented! And of course to see the fab prize we have, a Cheery Lynn Doily Die donated by Bizzy Bec!!! Wish I could enter!

Sadly our teamie Kaylou has decided to step down, we'll miss you hun!

The card recipe:
The Penny Black heart from the Clearly in Love set was stamped with Distress Ink and heat embossed with clear fine powder. It works fine, just remember to be quick with the heat gun as the Distress inks dries quite fast. The heart edges and the punched Martha Stewart border were distressed with the ink too.

QuickKutz flowers and Papermania brads were added to the crochet flowers. The ticket from Miss Cutie Pie is stamped with an Exchangeable alphabet.

The music sheet was made by distressing a paper with Distress inks and stamping the Penny Black music notes with Colorbox chalks. The paper under the brown card stock is made in a similar way with a PB border stamp, but it was distressed with the chalk.

The cut out corner was made with a Cuttlebug die and the design paper is a scrap piece (an old Panduro paper).

I'm entering:

I would like to thank for all your lovely comments, it really means the world for me! Please forgive me if I don't visit at once, I always make a visit, but when working, I tend to make the rounds only a few times a week. Have a fabulous weekend filled with love!

Warm hugs
Maarit
