HSS Romance

Oh la la, Hand Stamped Sentiments Weekly challenge is to use romantic colors! They called specifically for shades of red, with accents of black and whisper white or very vanilla.

Since HSS is run by SU Demos, I sometimes try to make my card SU only. (They don't care what product you use; it is a little self imposed restriction I like to put on myself!) This week I almost succeeded! Those pesky rhinestones are compliments of the 100 yen store in Japan...oh how I miss it so!

I have also found myself leaning more toward CAS cards lately. **gasp** I know. I actually think it is just that I can't quite bring myself to cut into the paper I like to hoard...LOL...

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Short and Sweet
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
Ink: Versafine Black, Versamark
Accessories: Clear EP, Hearts & Brackets Big Shot die, rhinestones, CM corner punch


I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! :)

Hey girl, been thinking of you lately as we are finally getting the last of our things settled in the new house. Not easy to do with three, ugh. Hope you are settled now too. So good to see your card. I love Baroque Motifs. Such a classy set! Love the vividness of the heart against the boldness of the black image.

Love it. I'm just really getting into Valentine's this year for some reason and I'm wanting to use older stamps and papers. I love the Baroque Motifs...it's such a classic design...good for any season, any occasion. This is a beautiful card, Siobhan. And I'm always on the look out for CAS creations. Yours is perfect. Laughing at the hoarding comment. Oh, sweetie...you have no idea!!!! LOL

What a great clean and simple card! Wish I had seen it before I did my workshop with my retirement ladies. They would have loved it. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.

I just love the clean design of your card, Siobhan! The red heart just pops off the card and the little rhinestones are perfect. I especially like the single rounded corner. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. I hope you will play along again! :)

Ooooooo, so very pretty & simple. Since I'm SOOOOO behind in my blogs I'm also so behind in making my kids & hubby VD cards. I'm STEALING this design, if you don't mind (which almost kidna rhymes!)

Beautiful card. I can't do CAS for some reason. They just never turn out to my satisfaction.
