Hey... have you been to Craft Critique yet??? Why the heck NOT!?! Win some free stuff why don't ya! And tell your friends!!! While you are there I recommend you subscribe... and then go put a ink up on YOUR blog! :) I just happen to know that we have some AWESOME stuff planned for the coming weeks. I would hate for you to miss out!
And NOW for the Valentines! From our Canadian participants!
First up we have Amy Rysavy's card. If you don't know "Prairie Paper and Ink" then you are just not reading enough stamping blogs. Amy is known for her awesome tutorials and her prolific card posts... I swear the girl must always be stamping... she posts a card or TWO almost daily! The thing you don't know about Amy is that her swaps smelled like CANDY! Seriously... it was the nicest thing to open that envelope from Canada and get a whiff of those cards.... not that I smell my swaps by the way... you just couldn't HELP but notice the sweet-tart smell of these cards. How do you do it Amy?
I love the HEART on this card; it's all glittered up and really bold. She also used a White Uniball pen to trace around the holes she made on the scalloped edges of the focal point circle... isn't that CUTE? And check out the doodled boarder she made... gotta love it! And I love the googly eyes too... nice touch! Thanks Amy!
Isn't this card by Terri Digness amazing! The layers on this baby are so thick and wonderful... that's TWO chipboard hearts there... count 'em... TWO! Plus she added a heart made with microbeads on one! Look at the heart in the center. She embossed around the edge... so lovely! Combined with the Brushed Silver paper, the ribbons, brads and faux stitching... WOW!
Terri has a terrific blog; "Stampin' Terri". Be sure to look at her Emboss Resist Glass Etching Tutorial. I thought it was particularly impressive.
