Karen's Doodles and Top Tip Tuesday Challenges


The challenge this week at Karen's Doodles is Valentines or Love and at Top Tip Tuesday, anything goes. I made this card with a lovely diecut from Cherry Lynn Designs called Garden of Love. The die itself is very large and I wanted to make an A2 size card, so I cut off the heart part of the die leaving the love and some flowers. So that is my tip today: look at your stamps and dies and punches and think of alternative uses for them by just using part of the stamp or diecut or punch. I started with a pink card and layered a pretty translucent floral sheet on that. I attached the love piece with gluedots and covered them with pink pearls. I added another heart punch in the corner (Martha Stewart), and more pink pearls in each corner to complete the card.

Stamping smiles, Karen
