Love is in the Air


It's the month where love is in the air and that's the theme with the inspiration photo for the current The Card Concept challenge.
I wanted to use a favorite old stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Love in Bloom. It's a layering set using three main colors: Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz and Vintage Jadeite - dye inks by PTI. I call my style "clean and layered" and love this color combo!


I lightly stenciled the background with a narrow stripe stencil and Vintage Jadeite ink. I then layered the medium Border Bling: Skinny Heart Frames die with inset tiny hearts from die cutting the frame from the Vintage Jadeite card stock - a tiny detail that ties it in with the card base. The heart and sentiment banner are popped up with foam tape.

STAMPS: Love in Bloom, With Love Mini (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz, Vintage Jadeite, True Black (PTI).
PAPER: Vintage Jadeite, White (PTI).
DIES: Love in Bloom, Border Bling: Skinny Heart Frames (PTI); Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things); Basic Sentiment Suite (The Greetery). 
OTHER: Basic Diagonals stencil (? company); Rain drop embellishments (PTI). 
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!   ~Wanda

Beautiful card! The stenciling is on point! When I see the inspiration picture, the light green really jumps out at me, and this card has the perfect amount of light green!
