Love you

** 2/16/15 Winner at Melonheadz Friends! **

Hi everybody! I'm super stoked to share my 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project with you today! I got out my Sizzix Square Flip-Its die set and created a beautiful purple swing card for Valentine's Day.

I used the absolutely GOR-JUSS Purple Passion Crinkle Ribbon from the Royal Bundle, some of the NEW Lilac Diagonal Striped Ribbon and a Vintage button. I definitely 'glammed' this card up... love me some 3 Girl JAM! ;)

These swing cards are just so much fun and really pack a huge punch. I love the varying shades of purple on this paper which I layered on silver metallic cardstock. The focal image is a super fun three-step stamp by Stampin' Up! that I stamped with one ink but actually looks like three. I added a bling flourish for a little interest. And how about that yummy ribbon and bow?!

I embossed the age-old XOXO Hugs and Kisses sentiment on the front in white embossing powder. I was afraid it wouldn't show up on the busy purple background, but it stands out quite nicely. I also used some violet Dot Sparklers across the bottom of both panels.

Here is a shot of the card opening up...

Here it's opened up showing the back of the swing mechanism with the stamped 'Love you' sentiment that I inked and layered on some of the silver metallic cardstock.

And one last close-up of that super awesome ribbon and bow embellished with the vintage button. I just love how this turned out! ;)

  2. Love the purples and that stamped flower looks so pretty. Only goes to show we don't need a lot of ink pads to achieve stunning results, although that doesn't stop me from wanting to buy more LOL.
