Hello everyone! It's Thursday which can only mean one thing...it's Design Team Thursday over at My Thoughts Exactly! I am in the Valentine's day mood lately, I think it just may be my favorite holiday to craft for. So today I have a fun little love themed card using the Under the Sea and Many Thanks sets.
Under the Sea. I got the idea for the rainbow effect from the Runway Inspired Challenge blog, they have the best inspiration pictures! Now you'll notice the 'I love you' is stamped a bunch of times with no smudges, I'll even let you look under the cutout if you'd like. Usually I have trouble getting my stamps to line up this perfect with no smudges. Well a few weeks ago Lenae, one of the fabulous ladies on the MTE DT, posted a video about how she stamps. Her little 'trick' is pure genius! I will never again have smudged images, you can check out her video here. Do you all know the Love sculpture in Manhattan? Well I just love it, one day I'll get to go see it, and it was the inspiration for the love block cutout. I spritzed the love cutout with red chalkboard and pearl glimmer mists before foam taping it to the card...I'm not kidding I think I used 20 foam squares (someone got a little over zealous with the glimmer mist and the love cutout no longer laid flat). Now a card would not be complete without a little sentiment on the inside.
Many Thanks set and the 'I do' is from the Under the Sea set.
In case you haven't head the February My Thoughts Exactly stamp release went live a little early. You see all the stamps are themed around love so they are perfect for all the Valentine's day projects. Alyssa wanted to make sure you all had ample time to create with them so she released them a little early :) There are a total of 7 sets to buy! How awesome is that?!? Be sure to stop back on February 1st for the official release party blog hop. Now head over to see what the lovely Kendra and Benedicte have created today. Happy crafting!
