Curtain Call Act {69}

On Sunday I JUST needed to work on my kid's Valentines and make my daughter's friend Valentines but when I saw this week's Curtain Call inspiration photo/colors, I just HAD to make one more Valentine!  Besides, Laurie, one of my best stamping friends is the Guest Designer this month. 



I am having a lot of fun mixing and matching different elements and layers.....not sure if it's vintagy or not but I like it!  This one uses Heart Prints stamped in 2 different red inks.......Pure Poppy and Ruby Red (SU). 



I used my Top Note die for the center piece and it was made using the letterpress technique and Dark Chocolate ink.  (My friend Laurie does this all the time with the IP's from PTI)  I think the hardest part of this challenge was to use both vanilla and white so I layered my red piece on white cardstock and added a white seam binding bow with a white stick pin.  You don't know how much I wanted to use more of my distress inks on these!  :)



This past week has been soo busy with releases for WD and then the PTI Anniversary week with challenges galore, I may step back and slow down but we'll see!  Have a great day!

I love the impression on the top note die ....... PERFECT. I would never be able to do this challenge because I am challenged in this area just in my house .... I always feel like something white looks dirty if something vanilla is with it ..... I need help:)

What a lovely, love-filled card Amy. Just super. I really like how you combined the white and vanilla as that is no easy feat. The seam binding bow with the button and heart pins is so sweet. Brava!

Call it what you want, but I want to see more of it! :-) Beautiful as always! There are so many fun elements to this I like! I am loving those stick pins...ugg I have looked for cute goodies, but there are no local SBS here. Anyway, love love love!

Beautiful! Love how your letterpress background turned out, and the amount of distressing is just perfect. :)

Jen Carter said...

Ewwwww, isn't this pretty! I just love how the white ribbon with the big red button is the focal point (for me anyway) and the rest just works to compliment it! Your hearts are such a fun grouping too! I bought this set and it is still in the case...need to get it out!
