Now for my creation for this week.


I’ve created a sweet Valentine’s card today using Pink Ribbon Tilda from Magnolia’s ‘With Love’ Collection. I have stamped my image onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair & Boots - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50; Clothes - C2, C1, C00; Bow - R27, R24, R22, R21.

My image has been cut out using a Floral Oval die from Spellbinder which I have sponged using Sahara Sand Ink.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


The pretty paper I’ve used on the front is “Summer Memories” Rosegarden by Magnolia. I have sponged the edges using Sahara Sand ink. The sentiment I’ve used is from Magnolia’s ‘Sweet Crazy Love’ Collection and has been stamped using Real Red ink and then fussy cut.

Here’s another photo.


I’ve used Marianne Design die LR0299 to cut out my red heart. I have added some gorgeous lace, a red satin bow and antique brad from my stash and a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to complete my card. The inside has “Summer Memories” Red Kitchen Cloth paper by Magnolia.

Your next stop for the hop is Blankina.
