Do All Things With Love

Are you ready for more fabulous new stuff?! It's new release day at Bugaboo Stamps! Today's New release is Love Blocks-With Love. The DT has created some fabulous projects for you, using this new image. Head on over to Catch The Bug and check them out! You don't want to miss the wonderful inspiration the rest of the DT has made for you!

My card today features the Love Blocks-With Love image from Bugaboo Stamps. I went for a vintage feel to my card this time. (Not the best at achieving vintage, but I'm trying! LOL) So I chose this black cream and yellow paper combo from a new paper stack Santa brought me for Christmas. The bottom fancy bordered piece is embossed and has a velvety texture. I did fussy cutting around the edges to make it a scallop type edge. Absolutely gorgeous paper! I've paired it with some matching non textured stripes. The image is colored with Promarkers and sponged with shades of yellow, and the flowers accented with pearls in various sizes. The smaller image is attached with foam mounting tape for dimension. The ribbon was something different for me! Here's a little tip for The TTT (Tip) at Top Tip Tuesday: Did you know you can color ribbon to match your paper?! How cool is that?! I used the same color ink pad that I used to sponge the image, to sponge the flowers on the ribbon and make them match my paper! I love the look and really must do this more often! The flowers on the ribbon were originally a bright white.
