Love & Hearts

Here's a CAS card I whipped up this morning.
This qualified for quite a few challenges today too! Free Smiley Courtesy of

Hand Stamped Sentiments: I love Hearts!
The Paper Players: Anything Goes!
A Gem of a Challenge: Ribbon & Lace
Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge

I wanted something lacey but didn't exactly have lace hanging around so I spotted a doily! I sponged the doily on to my card in the corner and added this cute flying bird from the Valentine Defined stamp set.

I added some hearts in the corners of the doilies as there were some bare spots that just didn't look right. I spritzed on some SMOOCH and highlighted the hearts. I added this Chantilly Crochet Trim which would qualify as a ribbon and lacy! Free Smiley Courtesy of

Supples: All Stampin' Up except the doily

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla

Ink: Pretty in Pink

Stamps: Valentine Defined

Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, Chantilly Crochet Trim, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, SMOOCH Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer, SMOOCH Pearlized Accent Ink in Moonlight, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder

Have a fab day!

Love the sponged doily. Neat idea and the effect is so soft. Thanks for playing with Stampin' Celebration.

Such a beautiful Valentine! I really like the technique you shared with the doily and your lace "flower" is so, so gorgeous! The texture and sparkle add so much, too. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week! :)
