Love is in the Air



I don't know about you, but I LOVE creating Valentine/heart/love cards! Joanne has chosen the following theme for this week's Paper Players Challenge: LOVE IS IN THE AIR. I thought this pair of love birds would be perfect for the theme and paired them with the blossom die - both by Concord and 9th!



I stamped the floating mini hearts using Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink. The stripes and sentiment were stamped multiple times using a MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink.  After die cutting the birds and florals, I punched out the little pieces and sponged them with Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo distress oxide inks. I then inlaid the pieces into the outline portion of the die. The birds' eyes are tiny black rhinestones.

We would love to see how you interpret this fun theme!  For more inspiration...check out the rest of the design team's samples HERE

Wanda, I love the pink black and white color scheme. The raspberry hearts are fabulous, especially with the bold black side stripes. (Isn't the MISTI the greatest thing for ensuring good coverage!) Your little birds are adorable. Fabulous card. Hope you have a good week

Oh, Wanda! You have stamped the floating hearts to perfection! I'm sure if I would have done it, I would have created blobs! The birds are precious. I love the shading on their wings. The rhinestone eyes are the perfect accents! Have a wonderful week!

I love the vertical hearts, stripes and sentiment and the fresh colour combo you chose to highlight those adorable little lovebirds Wanda. This card must have taken ages to get everything just so - from the perfect stamping to those beautiful paper-pieced flowers, it's gorgeous Wanda - perfect for this week's love theme!
