I used my Hero Arts Woodgrain background stamp for this one. (I really love this stamp!) Then I simply drew the design in pencil and hand stitched over it.
For this card I used a Hero Arts alpha stamps, Cloud & Woodgrain background stamps, a Unity Stamps Worn Grid stamp (for the grass) and Basic Grey Owl stamp. To create the tree stump I stamped the woodgrain onto some kraft cardstock and hand cut the main stump shape, then cut an oval from the section of the stamp that had the swirl design and added it to the top of the stump.
I used my cloud background stamp and owl stamps again for this one, along with some Cosmo Nutmeg paper.
I found the perfect stick in the garden to use as the branch and punched some little hearts to use for the leaves.
And finally for my last card I used a small Stampin' Up heart and VersaMark ink to stamp my kraft background. The Love stamp is by Basic Grey.
I think that should do me for Valentines cards for a while! LOL I don't think I've ever made so many in one go! I should be right for Paul tomorrow at least. ;)
We've spent the last few hours here watching the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics on tv....WOW!!! It had some really spectacular moments throughout!! Did anyone else see it? I think they're replaying it again tonight on tv. I really enjoyed it!
Well... better run and get a few things done around here before dinner. Hope you're having a great weekend!
ps. Thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes! :)
