Love You

Valentine's Day isn't too far away!  I took this week's Mojo Monday sketch 275 and gave it a romantic flare.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.  Perfect for the occasion, I used the P.S. I Love You stamp set, En Francais background stamp, along with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder... which is one of my all time favorites!  I sponged Champagne shimmer paint on the embossed panel although it's not as apparent in the picture,.  Embellished with Cherry Cobbler seam binding and Very Vanilla taffeta ribbons, it's ready to give to say, "Love You"!


  1. Love the romantic aspects of this card! So elegant!

  2. This is a great card...I'd love to know how u made the rose!

  3. Thank you! I made the rose with Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon, hot glue, and my Stampin' Up silicone mat.
    Here's how:
    1) Start with a blob of hot glue (about the size of a dime) in the middle of a silicone mat.
    2) Place the end of your ribbon in the glue and let it sit for a moment so it doesn't lift out when you gently tug on it.
    3) Add more glue around the existing blob of glue, then twist your ribbon as you spiral it around gently pressing down into the hot glue (making sure you are covering the blob).
    4) As soon as you get it to the size you'd like, let it sit for a minute or two to let the glue set. Pop it off of your mat, trim the ribbon so you have about 1/2" left hanging off, then take that end and tuck and glue it to the bottom of your rose.

    It might help to try this on "scrap" ribbon first so you don't waste your pretty stuff!
