Lovey Dovey ...

Spent the entire day getting crafty in my stamp room today ... it's a GOOD DAY!



I'm on a sewing theme kick with my cards lately (see this post HERE and this post HERE) -- too cute!  This one is another mini paper quilt I made by cutting lots of strips of 1/2" pretty papers and then doing a basket weave pattern to create a quilt top!  I cut couple of border punches in Melon Mambo CS to create the 'binding' for the quilt with tiny pearls to accent!  I cut a heart shape from some hot pink glitter chipboard and embellished it with a snipett of lace, crocheted flower, button, baker's twine, trinket pin, tag and tiny clothes pin!

The tag was stamped using a GORGEOUS sentiment piece from the Monograms Defined stamp set available at My Time Made Easy!

So FUN to make ... you gotta give this technique a try! 

Challenges for this card:

Embellish Magazine - color challenge with hearts
Totally Hues #1 - color palette
Create For CARDS - border punches
4 Crafty Chicks - Valentine's Day
The Creative Cottage #32 - words of love as focal point
