Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Deco Divas/Love Is In the Air Blog Hop!

Can’t you feel love in the air! Soon we will be surrounded by flowers and candy as we celebrate St Valentine's Day. I can smell the roses already. But there shouldn’t be just a single day to share our feelings with loved ones. We should tell them every day how we feel. This year my husband and I will be celebrating 18 years together and I am proud to say romance is still very much alive! If you arrived here from Jessica's blog then you are in the right place!

For this blog I used the #454S Heart Wings stampette stamp set. I wanted to do something different so I thought I would try out a new product.Recently I bought a Fiskars Compact Stamp Press. This was the first time I used it. I used the four lines of text by placing them on the clear grid of the stamp press. I removed the second and fourth lines and used a Memories Pink dye ink and stamped on white card stock. I removed these lines of text and replaced them with the first and third lines and used Memories Imperial Purple dye ink.

I then stamped a VersaMark pad over the entire piece of card stock. I poured Super Thick Clear Embossing powder (EP230) over the VersaMark and used a heat gun. Once all the embossing powder was melted I used ½” double sided “Tear-ific” tape (#SAT04) to attach the white card stock to Stardream Amethyst cardstock and wrapped a pink ribbon around it. Then I used the tape to attach it to the Stardream Rose Quartz card base.

I cut a small piece of pink ribbon and wrapped it around the attached ribbon to create a small bow. I then placed a Conversation Heart sticker on the top of the ribbon. I used the Spellbinders Classic Hearts Nestabilities to create a Stardream Rose Quartz heart. I then stamped Always & Forever with Memories Imperial Purple ink and attached it to the card front with dimensional pop-dots. I then used a shank remover on a white pearl heart button and used a glue dot to attach it to the Rose Quartz heart.

I hope you enjoyed my card. And remember, enjoy the people in your life and show the love!
