Tour de Freaks - Love is in the Air

Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the Janaury Control Freaks Blog Hop - Love is in the Air!
 Can you feel the love? Whether you are arriving from Debbie's Designs or 
just starting out here, I promise by the end of the tour you will!

For me, Valentine's Day is my favorite day of the year. Not just because it's
my birthday (ok, that IS the main reason, haha), but really, what's not to 
LOVE about LOVE??? Right?

And what's not to love about the Love Blossom's Suite?
Look at the detail in the Bllomin' Heart thinlit. The vanilla
tone-on-tone really makes the red "pop"!
Of course, I couldn't have a card without a little
added gold accent. Kinda romantic, I think.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Red Glimmer, Red Foil
Accessories: Gold Sequins, GOld Baker's Twine, Bloomin' Heart thinlits, Happy Heart embossing folder, Little Letter thinlits

The second project came to me when I first saw the Birthday
Bouquet designer paper. I love the shabby chic/Victorian feel of
all the papers. I picked up some 5" wooden letters from the craft store.
I traced the letters onto the papers, cut and adhered with Multi-purpose liquid glue.
Once dried, I sponged the letters with Crumb Cake. Then, I glued the letters 
together and added a few simple embellishments. Looks
super cute on my shelf surrounded by Valentine cards! 

Ink: Crumb Cake
Paper: Birthday Bouquet designer paper, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Watermelon Wonder
Accessories: Bloomin' Heart thinlits, Blushing Bride satin ribbon (Artisan embellishment kit), Basic Pearls, Botanical Builder framelits (leaves), Sponge Dauber, Tea Lace Doily

I hope you enjoyed!
Happie Stampin'!
Now, head over to Julie's Stampin' Spot - 
she has some LOVE for you, too!

The VV heart die cut on the VV background is such an elegant, vintage look; love it! And the wooden letters have given me inspiration for a shelf decoration in my craft room. Thanks!
