Happy Valentine’s Day

Tonight I would like to share a card I just finished for a class of 3 cards at my local stamping store Bonnidée.  I will show you the other 2 cards after the class (one is a Mimi and the other a Hedgehog).  This one will be for my husband, but I know he doesn’t look at my blog….

I used a digital stamp by Mo Manning, but it is also available in rubber by Penny Black, so that’s what we will use in the workshop.  I saw this technique done on the Penny Black site (spot stamping) so I tried it for my card.  I printed the image, then coloured only the flowers.

Here is the card:

The card is 5 x 7.  The background cardstock is Bazzill red.  The pink patterned paper started out as white embossed Flourish cardstock (Hot off the press Colour me Glossy Flourish).  I rubbed my Distress ink pad (Spun Sugar) over the whole surface to colour it.  The image is matted in red and the tag around the greeting is the same red.  This was cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two.  The white tag inside the red is another Spellbinders tag (ribbon tag) to which I cut off the ribbon ends.  The greeting “Love forever” is computer generated.  The font is called Curlz.  I also rubbed some Pink Distress ink over the greeting.  To finish I glued 3 little punched hearts over the old couple and added 2 red gems to the fancy tag.
If you feel like making this card, come join us in the workshop at Bonnidée!
And since the challenge on the Penny Black Challenge blog for this week is anything goes (with a Penny Black stamp), I will be submitting this card for the challenge here and also for the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge here, where the challenge is Love and hearts.
Thanks for visiting my blog.  Merci de votre visite.

  • Your card certainly fits our challenge of “love and hearts” at Penny Black and More. The image is perfect and I love the minimal colouring.
    Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us. Good luck in our prize draw and we hope you will join us again next month.


  • A delightful card Louise.

    Love how you have left the main image uncoloured and just added touches to the flowers, makes for a very striking card.

    Thank you so much for joining in with our Love and Hearts theme at Penny Black and More this month, good luck and I hope you will join us again next month.

  • Simply stunning Louise! Love the minimal coloring on the image, perfect for the clean and simple card style.
    So happy you shared with us at penny black and more!

  • Gorgeous card Louise – fab image and love how you have partially coloured it. Pity though you ‘fessed up that this is a Mo Manning stamp rather than Penny Black, as it means you won’t be eligible for our prize. Thanks for sharing and hope to see you again soon.
