Love Is In The Air


Of all the holidays, I think Valentine’s day inspires me the most.  The bright papers, pretty hearts, lace and love,… are always what seems to get me jump started after the Christmas holidays are over.

This card has been kicking around my studio for YEARS!  It was originally created for a Pennywise Arts Yahoo Group swap and has been on the PWA display boards at conventions.  I’m still taking flack from friends that were around back then - for having so much of this patterned paper left on my shelves.  What can I say?  I loved it!  This year I made up a bunch of similar cards for a Relay For Life fundraiser so I don’t have very much of the paper left.  Just enough to feel, um, secure.  Ü

When squiggling glue over a stamped image, be sure to use an ink that won’t run when it gets wet from the glue.  Use a light hand and just go for it.  Ultra Fine Micro Beads work really well for adding just a little something without taking away from the overall design.

Hugs, Suzanne
