Getting Cricky Design Team Post - It's Valentines

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! It has been scorching hot here...in the 100's...we're having a heat wave!! :( No playing outside, so hopefully I'll get some crafting time in :) It's my turn to design at Getting Cricky and today, we are featuring the It's Valentines stamp set.


I threw in a bunch of Tim Holtz techniques for my tag today. The tag was white when I started, and I used a TH swirl stamp inked with an Adirnodack Paint Dabber in Snow Cap. A music notes background stamp from My Paper Studio in Mahogany Distress Ink was stamped next and once the ink dried, it was wiped from the white swirls. Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress ink were sponged on next, and then wiped off.


Only You is from It's Valentines. The frame is from TH, filled with Glossy Accents.


The filmstrip is from TH, as are the grungeboard wings, which I covered in TH music note tissue tape.  The grungeboard heart was inked with Barn Door Distress ink and then covered with Rock Candy Crackle Distress Paint and then inked with Mahogany Distress Ink once it cracked. The tag is a Spellbinders Mix'd Media Elements tag, inked with Vintage Photo. Sweetheart is also from It's Valentines:

  4. My dear Lisa, no worries! I've been more matte than sparkly, so it's probably a good thing (for your sake). ;) I had a horrible flare-up with my spinal situation, so I've been busy making sure I keep seeing the sunshine in everything. Not always easy in the storm, but I try to improve. :o) (And before your beautiful heart worries, my spine has calmed down and I'm even finishing a card tonight!) You will SMASH your deadline, Lisa. Because you are amazing like that. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
