Team Stamp It Blog Hope - Valentine


Hello my stamping friend and thank you for stopping by.
After some break I finally am participating in Team Stamp It blog Hop again. I was exited about the Valentine theme and knew from the beginning what stamp set I want to use - "More than Chocolate". See, I am a big dark chocolate lover and quite picky one (it needs to be very good, otherwise it will not pass the test, haha). Everybody in my family know about this, of course. And for Valentine - my husband always finds me special chocolate and chocolate covered strawberries. This is why that set spoke to me. The card will be perfect not only for my husband but for my kids and friends that know me well.
I went for soft look with Brushing Bride and Calypso Coral. I used the Bundle of Love DSP.
I used gold side of DSP on that card and blushing bride on Calypso coral one:
I stamped the heart in Blushing Bride and then outlines of candies in early espresso. The inside of candies are in early espresso too. I used blends in Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake to color each of them. They looked OK, but were missing something. So I got fine tip glue and covered each of the candy to create slight 3D effect and give them some shine. Hope you can see it on the picture.
Actual card makes me want chocolate:)
Now I think I will go make another one with real red paper and emboss saying in white.
If you like the card or chocolate - leave me a comment for a chance to win the prize.
Continue to hop alone for more Valentine ideas:


Happy Stamping!

Perfect card to let that chocolate lover know they rate higher than chocolate (and that's a high bar to exceed) #stampitcontest
