You Warm My Heart...

Hi, there! I wanted to share a card I made with The Stamps Of Life set, tea4two.  I sponged white acrylic paint on the edges of my kraft card base. I also stamped the heart garland with the white acrylic paint across the top. I then went back, and outlined the hearts with a prisma pencil.  I stamped the sentiment and the hearts onto an echo park journal box from the This & That collection.  I ruffled some old text from a book, and added a rolled rose to the center and some banners to create my rosette.  I love the shabby look and feel of this card.
Someone recently emailed me to ask if I was leaning towards "layered cards" and if I was going to stop making CAS cards.  While I know that I lean towards a CAS style, I certainly do not want that to define my whole realm of stamping.  I adore antiquing and anything vintage, so I have found great joy in creating vintage cards with all of the wonderful products available.  I will absolutely still make CAS cards too, as they make me happy!  So all I can say is you will be seeing both from me.  I also have vowed to get back into scrapbooking and complete some books for my boys, so you may even have to look at some of those on occasion! LOL!

I hope you are having a great weekend!

Emily
