FINALLY!!! Here is a creation from me using my first ever DT kit from Wild About Scrap (that was bursting with gorgeous goodies - thanks Veronica!)...
I created this LO using papers from the Fancy Pants "Be You" range - which is bright, happy and full of colour...right up my alley! I cut, distressed & machine stitched one sheet to my cardstock to form the background, and with another I handcut a large artisan shape and then a doily with my Big Shot to add dimension & colour. I also added in a couple of plain white paper doilies I had in my stash.
When it came to embellishing the LO, I started with the title. I used a "Tim Holtz Texture Fades - Valentine Background and Borders" embossing folder set along with some "Core'dinations Cut & Emboss Gemstones" cardstock (these are the PERFECT size for use in embossing folders!) I embossed the word "love" onto the cardstock and then handcut & mounted it using foam mounting tape. I did the same thing with the hearts, which were embossed from one of the border folders.
The large flowers, which I used to add a splash of girly colour, are from the "Prima - Dollhouse Collection - Tuesday" and I highlighted them further by adhering additional rhinestones & pearls to their centres. The flowers were complimented by using "Prima - Garden Picks - Small Butterflies" which I attached simply using staples for a bit of contrast. Lastly, I added a scattering of small flowers and a piece of twine (both from my stash).
