Sweet Stamps- LOVE

LOVE is the theme of our challenge at Sweet Stamps  this week.

 I love to stamp on the parchment vellum from Sweet Stamps. I used the embossing buddy first to avoid fly away EP, then used Queen's Gold EP. I used the Etching Stylus in the open spaces of the image border and colored with markers in the floral areas. I tried to do some shading- not so sure this shows up in the picture. The Shimmery White and Gold papers are from Paper Temptress. The stick pin is from Pinque Peacock and the Ribbon is from Just Jolie.
 I only embossed the **Love You** on the sentiment- thinking it would be a card I could send to someone close but less intimate than *I love You* (or can send to someone from both my husband and myself....).

 I decided to make one more card with this pretty stamp and made it in pink : )


  This card was embossed with White EP. I made it CAS on the front and added the sentiment and a die cut in the center of the card:
I so wish the shimmer from the Pink and White cardstock showed up better in the pictures.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products used on these projects:
