Love Birds Swap
Our swap exchange had to be a current stamp set used as a Valentine card. I had been wanting to try the Crimped Diamond background which I found on Split Coast Stampers as a tutorial. My colors are Whisper White and Riding Hood Red and my stamp set is Northern Hearts Hostess Level 1 from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The only accent is a single rhinestone from Jewels Basic Rhinestones.
My scanner doesn't do justice to the crimped background's dimensions and shine. I made verticle crimping on this card's diamond center and horizontal on some others to give different effects. Clean and simple style. There is a new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Stampin'Up Occasions Mini Catalog that is called Framed Tulips which will give a lovely frame to this stamp. You can see this folder by clicking on the Occasions catalog picture on the right of the blog linking my web site to my blog.
I'll be posting the Make & Take cards soon. As always thank you for stopping by & please come again.
