Love You Card

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I will be the first to admit that I don't often think of using alphabet stamps so I really wanted to make a conscious effort to create more designs using these versatile little stamps. How often have you gone to use your favorite alphas and run out of a certain letter so can't complete exactly what you wanted to say. Well the alphabet stamps prevent that from ever happening... why didn't I realise this earlier?

DESIGNED FOR | Hampton Art
PROJECT | Love You Card

WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM? | On a recent shopping trip with my daughter we stumbled upon a store that sold the most mesmerizing wind chimes similar to the photo below. We were transfixed as we watched them spin and it dawned on me that I could use their design for a pattern which I've applied to this card.

  1. This is one of my faves!! beautifully put together and I love the double ink on the alphas..x

  2. So neat...I really like how you've cut into the heart to pop on the letters:):) I am too lazy to use alpha letters....always find it hard to get 'em even, too.....shame on me, eh???!!!!!!!!

  3. This is really lovely, those hearts look wonderful.. and the sequins are a perfect touch too.. I have been seeing quite a few sequins on creations tonight!! and I do have alpha stamps.. always forget to use them!!

  4. Yes, I have a pile of alpha's which have missing letters, that really make it difficult for making words, let alone a title. Never thought to use alpha stamps and I know I have a small set somewhere! Your card is really sweet, I love where your inspiration came from, they are beautiful windchimes. Thanks for popping in and visiting my blog, I love working with your sketches - eager to do next month with the yummy details you added in. Have a great weekend (nearly here).

  5. Love the card and the little sparkle of the sequins is a sweet touch. Just enough!
    I love reading the stories of where your inspiration comes from. I think I need to take a closer look at things so I really 'see' them.
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. I love your card. I would love that beautiful chimes.
