I've been playing around with some tiny flower stamps - the sort you get as fillers in all sorts of stamp sets - a lot of them came from those little Studio G dollar stamps that I collected a ton of, just for the sentiments
So I cut a heart out of some Cricut vinyl, and used it as a mask, be sure to stamp right up to, and over the edges of the heart so that you get a crisp outline
then I used the positive heart to cover up the stamping, and brushed some Sea Glass ink by Simon Says Stamp around the heart....
and here is the finished card - I added a few tiny heart sequins and a bit of Wink of Stella clear glitter for a bit of shine
and using pretty much the same stamps, I punched a partial circle to frame a sentiment on this next card, and stamped the flowers around the frame
I have been holed up in the warm here during a spell of bitterly cold weather - somewhere in my DNA I share some genetic traits with a dormouse - if I could, I would just hibernate, bury myself under a duvet and come up blinking and needing an urgent visit to my hairdresser when Spring arrives.....but as that can't happen, I just wrap up like Nanook of the North, spend a fortune on various bits of thermal clothing that nobody will ever see (and wouldn't want to, believe me!), grit my teeth and get on with it. Preferably indoors, preferably with the heating turned to max, that way I will get through the misery until those daffodils and crocus start popping up through the frozen ground. Now all this talk of cold has made me even colder. Hot chocolate anyone?
