Just for You

Another fantastic stamp from SWALK that was crying COLOUR ME!!! This little easel card is an easy make. To make a similar one you will need: a die of some shape dear to you, some backing papers, a nicely stamped and coloured image, some embelishments and glitter spray.
What I used were the following products:
  • SWALK Winter Cheer Collection CD for backing/design papers
  • Spectrum Noir pens
  • Spray and Sparkle - iredescent from Crafter's Companion
  • Nesting dies - Flower - X-cut from DOcrafts
  • Roses from TheWorks
  • Silver card
  • Tim Hotz's distress ink - Peeled paint
  • Just for You stamp from DOcrafts 
  • Little green ribbon from Papermania Capsule Collection from DOcrafts
I cut out the flower shape as a card base and silver card layers. Then I cut out some smaller pieces from the backing paper, distressed them with some green ink and sprayed with iridescent glitter glue. After forming a little easel, I assembled all the parts of the card. Finally, I attatched the image (previously stamped, coloured  and cut out) and embelished the card with some roses, a ribbon and a little ''Just for You' sentiment.

Oh, there is a little secret. Last night I didn't colour the girl's hair well. Though the card was cute, I WAS NOT HAPPY.  After thinking and thinking what to do, it just clicked in my head. The simplest solution of all. I stamped the girl's head, coloured,cut it out and used it as a decoupage.

Cold Hands - Warm Heart

Winter is coming, bringing all the magic with it: cold feet, mittens and scarves, frozen noses, warm homes and love. Love never stops to exist even during this season.

This card is for all of those who believe in the magic. It is for engagement or dating, wedding or anniversary, or just simply expression of love.

Magic ingredients for this card are:
  • SWALK winter stamp
  • Spectrum Noir pens
  • Core'dinations
  • Roses from the Works
  • DOcrafts X-Cut Scalloped Heart Die
  • And, lots of love.
