Valentine Tag

Hello Bloggers!
This is a tag I made for a swap with my dear friend Mary Larner in the U.K. I also submitted it to the Tim Holtz Blog!

If this is something you would like to make, let me know and I will include it in the Vintage Valentine tutorial which will post later today!  Just leave me a comment below!
The tag was stamped with Tim Holtz's "To My Valentine" stamp,
then I outlined it with sparkly ink from a gel pen.
I added Prima Flowers, German Scrap and Tim Holtz corners in Bronze.  I sprayed it with gold Glimmer Mist, and added amber gemstones around the edges.  I used a keyhole brad, and tied a key with brownish-red ribbon to the top.
Lastly, I adhered an image of a cupid from K & Company using pop-dots.

I am sorry, but the backlight on my laptop is STILL malfunctioning and I have not been able to post the Vintage Valentines tutorial yet.  Please bear with me, I am getting it repaired, and as soon as I can, will post the tutorial.

*Will be posting Saturday February 2nd.

Check back tomorrow and hopefully it will be up!
Until then,
Happy Creating!

p.s. A special Thank You to my friends Mary Larner and Patty O'Malley, both of whom sent me some lovely gifts!  I will post their wonderful presents to me in my next blog posting!  Ladies, I LOVE them!

Vintage Collage Valentines 2013

Hello Bloggers!
I have designed two Vintage Collage Valentines that I will be sharing with you today.
There are two ways to learn how to make them:
1. Take the class on February 6, 2012 at InkPaperRubber, Overland Park, Kansas.
2. Take my tutorial here which will post on February 12th. Note: I am having some trouble with the backlight on my laptop, so it may be late in the day Wed. before I get the tutorial posted.  I am going to post from my iPhone and will have to re-take all the photographs!  Sorry!  

I used Authentique Paper on one and Graphic 45 Paper on the other.
Here are the cards we will make:

This is the front view of Card #1.
I used Authentique's "Lovely" Paper Line, Prima Flowers, and trims from JoAnn's
This is another view of Card #1
This is the front view of Card #2
It was made from the Graphic 45's "A Place in Time" Paper Line, February page.
Prima flowers, German scrap and lace from InkPaperRubber were used to embellish.
