Love Blooms

I just bought this set called Love Blooms from The Angel Company. It is from the Fall Supplement. I thought it would make a really fun Valentine's card. I used patterned paper from the DCWV Love & Wedding scrapbook kit in a stack that I bought on clearance for a steal of a price and thought it would make some great cards. I cuttlebugged pure poppy cardstock with the hearts cuttlebug folder, and then realized that I can't see it anyways. Oh well. The pink strip is Prism cardstock that I punched with the Martha Stewart mini hearts border punch. The ribbon is Papertrey pure poppy, the bling is cell phone bling I bought on clearance at target for 80 cents. Great deal. Ok, on to the image. I stamped the tree trunk in Palette Burnt Umber and then emphasized it by coloring in some detail with a brown Prismacolor pencil. The hearts are stamped in Papertrey Pure Poppy ink and I used my clear Stardust glitter pen to outline some of the hearts. I chalked over the hearts with pink shimmer chalk and added a little grass to the base of the tree with green shimmer chalks. The hearts "falling" from the tree are Cloud 9 heart rain dot stickers.
This is the inside of the card. I used a sentiment from Souls Kisses. This set has some great Valentine sentiments in it. I stamped this in Papertrey Pure Poppy ink. This stamp set is part of the Wonderful Winter Wishes promo. This special ends February 2nd, so not much time left if you want to grab it. The hearts are from the Love Blooms set. The bling on the heart is from Martha Stewart.
Well, I have been very chatty today. I hope you didn't mind putting up with me. Thanks for stopping by.
