Be My Valentine



Hi all, its Gwendolyn here today to share a card I made to inspire you to join our current monthly challenge. As it was Valentine’s Day yesterday, this month’s challenge celebrates love! Love between your partner and you, with your family, your friends, your pets or blogger friends whom I truly appreciate and love!

Be my valentine heart

I was inspired by the bouquet of flowers and the ice cream with strawberry in the photo board to make my card, but as I am lactose intolerant, I replaced the ice cream with flowers. I used stamps from 5 different Hero Arts stamps set to make my card! The cone comes from the Color Layering Ice Cream set, which I stamped with Momento Desert Sand for the base and Versafine Vintage Sepia for the darker parts of the cone.

The little flowers come from Hero Arts Cactus Animals, Hero Arts Autumn Moon and Hero Arts Mouse Tea Party and they were stamped to form the cone of the ice cream with alot of masking! I then coloured them with my Zig clean color real brushes. The sentiment comes from Hero Arts Love Bandit and I gave it a little ombre stamping by first stamping with Versafine Satin Red and then stamped the top again with a darker red ink Versafine Crimson Red.

Well I hope you liked my card and it will inspire you to join our challenge. I look forward to seeing them in the link up here. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  1. I love your take from the mood board! And the ice cream cone full of pretty flowers is so fun and pleasant.

  2. WOW, I’m not that patient to do all that masking. What a beauty.
