I kept the layout of this card pretty simple as i just the image and wanted it to stand out. The stamps are Nine Lives and the papers are Echo Park Love Story. I created the bow with Dienamics Dainty Bows (back in stock soon).

Handmade With Love

Today i have a fun & fast project i made for Studio 12 at Polka Doodles. This is actually a valentines bookmark i made although it could actually be for any occasion really.
I designed the whole project on Craft Artist using various elements from Picknix Volume 1. As it is a bookmark it needed to be pretty flat as i am one of those people who hates bent pages in books, i like them all flat nice and new! So all i did was print it out as it was then layer it onto another paper. I then added some pink twine to give it a more homemade rustic feel to it.

Hope you like my project today :)

Silhouette Flowers

Today i have a card i made for Dreamees.
This nice and simple card features some of the fabby new stamps...
I created the background using a few Memento Ink Pads and i applied them 
using my Dreamweaver brushes. I wanted a striking bold look so i simply stamped
the Silhouette Flower Border twice in black ink. I then stamped the sentiment that comes with that stamp set. The butterfly is from the Silhouette Butterfly Stamp Set. They coordinate perfectly together. I mounted the completed piece onto black card and onto a white card with a dash of ribbon.

Thanks for popping by today and i will be back tomorrow :)
