Romantic Gwen


Hello all! I know Valentine's Day is over but I don't think it is too late to talk about love, there is not just one day for that ;)! The latest arrivals at Quixotic Paperie inspired me to use one of my Some Odd Girl stamps that I had not inked yet and which I just love... Romantic Gwen...


I coloured Romantic Gwen with my Polychromos and used other stamps from the set - I really like that those stamps come as sets with extras! So the sentiment and heart logo are from the same set and I coloured the heart with my pencils. I added a little bit of washi tape and a Make It Crafty Corner from the Love Heart Swirls Chipboard set, plus a little pearl.


Challenges I am entering:
Cute Card Thursday - Simplify
Creative Belli - Hearts / Valentine
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything Goes

Girls' Secret Swing


Hello everyone! For my Quixotic Paperie post today, I am sharing a card featuring some Make It Crafty products I love - one of my favourite stamps and some chipboard perfect for spring:)!

I coloured my chipboard in Copics and added Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

So don't forget to leave comments to be in the chance of winning! And that's not all! Zoe has a special offer with a coupon code VAL10 giving you 10% off ALL digi stamps, valid until Monday 11th!

For my card, I decided to use an older Geeky Love stamp, you know, the one where it all began ;)! Here is my Geeky Love card...

Image: Make It Crafty Geeky Love
Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card (or here for Europe)
Chipboard: Make It Crafty Small Circle Swirl Frame (or here) and Love Heart Swirls

I think my card was inspired by one I saw, I tried to find it and searched FB for it but could not find it :(... I used my chipboard bare because I like the way they look uncoloured too and I resisted the urge to make a very symetrical card, for once... I did not put the image in the middle on purpose, crazy me ;)! 

Your next stop on the hop is the fantastic Sandie! And in case you want to see the whole blog hop list, here it is:)...
