Love Sparkles

Love Sparkles.0117When I first saw this stamp set I knew it would be perfect for the Love & Friendship class I held this week….and it was!  🙂

I thought of doing this card in one of my favorite pink colors but remember that when I design a card I have to make sure I have ribbon that coordinates!  I guess I could have done the card in Flirty Flamingo but I wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum….it’s a nice pinky purple.

I started with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder on the front of the card.  Now…don’t ask me why it’s called falling petals instead of hearts or something.  Personally I think the little designs look like hearts.  What do you think?  To highlight my petals (or hearts) I took a sponge dauber with some Sweet Sugarplum ink on it and LIGHTLY rubbed it over the embossed petals (hearts).  It really made them pop.

To get a little more “sparkle” on my card I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper on one layer.  I added a single rhinestone to the heart and then I used my Clear Wink of Stella Pen on all of the little “sparkles” on the word love.  I tried putting a small rhinestone on all of the “sparkles” but it was honestly a bit much.  I hate to admit that….how can you have too much sparkle?  Sheesh!

I hope you all have a sparkly day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
