With Love

Hello everyone, 

Well,  how is August treating you so far??  It's hot here in the Midwest and the Ohio Valley could stand some rain. Hope your area is a bit better than here.

I am a lover for embossing folders and dies. So, when I spied an embossing folder that also cuts, well I knew I just had to have that.

The folder I am using on the card below is by Crafters Companion and is called Heart Flourish. 

I cut a 4" X 5 1/4" white CS panel and embossed/cut it. I also cut a small pink piece to get that center heart shape and positioned in that center heart. To show off the beautiful embossed design, I used foam ink pods to apply pink ink to the raised design. I love those things. They work so well in coloring embossed areas on CS. 

The flowers are stamped onto pink CS using a dark reddish ink.  The ink is Fresco Chalk Finish dye ink and the color is Paprika Prado. These inks have been around for ages. I have all  30 colors and I just love them They remind me of old world colors and I use them from time to time. If you ever see them check them out. This ink line has some really gorgeous colors.


The flowers and leaves are from Dare2B Artzy
Doodle Flowers. 
I fussy cut those flowers out added some glitter and glued them to the card front.

My bow - 
This bow is a simple double loop bow. 



The tool

It's small but mighty. It makes a "mighty fine" bow.

This Friday nite/Saturday is the annual Stampaway stamping convention in Northern Cincinnati, Ohio.  I can't wait to see what all the vendors will be showing in their booths. I have made a list of a few things I want and can't wait to see what else I wind up not being able to live without. LOL
