Love is all we need!

I'm really excited to share today's card with you!  Have you ever had a concept in your head that took a completely different turn once you started working on your project?  Of course you have.  Maybe even often.  Well, I started off planning on making a multi-layered shabby chic card and ended up with a shabby CAS card instead.  It shocked me, but I'm happy with the result.

First of all, I LOVE, truly LOVE working with Waltzingmouse stamps.  Each set has such a cohesive variety of images that it's super fun to put them all together; even combining sets is so easy.

I used two sets today:  Woodgrain and My Heart

I started off by stamping the Woodgrain background image with Vintage Cream (PTI) ink onto white cardstock.  I then added the dots from the Woodgrain set using Niagra Mist and Gingerbread (VersaMagic) Chalk ink.  I then added the sentiment from the My Heart set with Onyx Black Versafine, and lastly the heart and banners in the corners.

The leaf branch was stamped over the Woodgrain banner (Stamped with Wheat VersaMagic Chalk ink) from the Woodgrain set, and the chevrons were stamped over the Woodgrain background image.  (I stamped the chevrons off first to make them a bit lighter.

Lastly, I added the woodgrain heart, a rhinestone, and a bit of sewing to finish it off.

That's if for my card today.  Thanks for letting me share it with you!

Happy Stamping!

This is such a sweet card. I like that dark zig zag stitch in the upper left, and the fab circles with the calm colour scheme. I agree - WMS are the best stamps!

This is simply gorgeous, Tosh! I love the dots stamped down the side and the fabulous little banners. All the woodgrain texture gives it a warm and cozy feel, too!
