From My Heart

I finally put together the From My Heart stamp set.  The beautiful background paper is Chanteuse by Kaisercraft.  It was adhered to a piece of sand metallic shimmer paper.  I distressed the edges of both pieces.  The image was stamped in Soft Suede and embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun.  The banner and teapot were colored in Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose with a blender pen.  I also added some Candle Light Shimmerz Paint to the banner.  Sponging was done in Brilliance Pearlescent Beige and ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.  Once cut out I adhered it to another piece of sand metallic shimmer paper punched from a 2 1/2" circle punch and then mounted it to a lacey circle from Primrose Petals paper.

The front was finished with tea stained lace, faux pearls and a brown rose.

Inside sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede with a teabag done in Basic Brown and Regal Rose.

Thank you for your friendship.  Wishing you a day filled with smiles!

Beautifully put together! Your creations are real artworks! I have never delved into the art of card making in your way, but it looks very interesting, looks like something I easily could get hooked on! I make my greeting cards on my computer and exhibit them on Fine Arts America where anyone can buy them, but printed art doesn’t have all the textural bits and pieces that makes your cards so beautiful. I love them!
