You light up my life

Hello again! I'm back, as I said I would be, with another Valentine I created this morning while I had an assortment of Gina K Designs stamps and 6x6 patterned paper out. This is a whimsical sort of Valentine that had me singing the Debbie Boone classic from the 1970s the entire time I was working in the scrap room! I'm still singing it in my head as I write this post! Bwahahaha!

I couldn't decide whether or not to color the lamp, so I set it aside while I cut pieces and began to assemble the card. It didn't take long for me to realize that it needed to be sultry red, so red it became. I even used some Glossy Accents on the bulb! This was a fun project and I do like how it turned out. I chose three papers from the Love Letters 6x6 patterned paper pack, all matted on black cardstock, and they look amazing together. Of course, I used my Bow It All bow maker for that luscious red six loop bow. Some tiny kraft heart die cuts, a heart bead and some red gemstones finished it nicely.

The inside sentiment stamp is from the Bundle of Love stamp set.

I'm proud to enter this Valentine into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory cardstock; Paper and More black cardstock
  • GKD Love Letters 6x6 patterned paper pack
  • GKD Heartfelt Hits stamp set

Okie dokie, that's it from me. I hope the weather is warming up just a little wherever you are. It's a rainy day here in north Florida... a good day to be playing in the scrap room! Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time! ;)
