Art Deco Romance

Hi, I am back with a card I created quite a while ago for one of my Husband’s colleagues, who wanted something special to accompany the ring for a proposal for marriage….luckily the recipient said YES!

Art Deco Lace Valentine

To create this card

Hero Arts Gracious Lady (G2811) was stamped onto cream card using Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with Copics and cut out. I hand cut a scalloped doily from lace fabric to mount behind the image. Three roses were made from felt using Spellbinders Bitty Blooms and the two hearts were cut from mountboard using Sizzix Doodle Dies Hearts and overstamped with the tail of the bird from Penny Blacks Sweet Melody Stamp set. The background was stamped and clear embossed onto cream card using Penny Black Bed of Roses and then rubbed over with Memento Tuxedo black ink. A With love printed ribbon was added to the bottom and a double bow made from satin ribbon.



My Introduction to Stampscapes

Welcome to my first post, if you would like to know more about me then please click on the about tab at the top of this page.

I recently went to a stamping and scrapbook show and came across a range of stamps made by Stampscapes, the purpose of the stamp designs are to help you create scenic images by using and overlapping their stamps and then colouring them in. This is my first attempt at creating an image using the stamps.


To create this card I used the following products:

Stampscapes Boulders with Litchen205F, Pine Tree 196F and Water Pattern 231C, Art Impressions WC Silhouettes A-2729, Grass Clump AA-1375 and Jumbo Grass Stalks I3007. Semi Gloss Coated White card and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento inks Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, London Fog and Espresso Truffle, Kaleidacolor Dessert Heat and Memento Luxe Wedding Dress inks and Ink Potion no.9. Copic White and a fine liner pen were used to create highlights and the birds.
