Valentine Craft Us Crazy challenge

Hello there ;o)  Well it's time again for the Craft Us Crazy challenge again!!  

Our challenge theme we have for you is VALENTINE's/LOVE and/or USE THE COLOR RED!!
For this challenge, we have a brand new sponsor.

The winner will receive 5 stamps/images!
I have gone for red this week and also the love theme - hard to believe we're moving towards Valentine's Day.  So, here is my card;

The stamp is a large wooden one that I have had for ages - it came in a bag of end of line wooden stamps and I have never gotten around to using it before.  I stamped it and heat embossed with lava black cosmic shimmer powder so although black it has a gorgeous red sheen to it.  The papers are from a pile of papers that were also bought as a job lot - they are really pretty and I love the birds on the patterned paper.  I edged them with a Copic marker.  I added some spellbinders die cuts and made two peony type flowers with white tissue paper and sprayed them with luminart radiant rain in persimmon.  I rubbed a walnut stain distress pad over the tops once I had dried them.  The little hearts are made from lava black powder again melted in my melt pot and tipped into a little metal heart cutter.  I added a few faux stitches to finish and did the inside of the card to match.
Please join us over on the Craft Us Crazy blog for the challenge, we love looking at your fab entries ;o)



  1. Beautiful card! Love those flowers!

  2. Wow, what a gorgeous card...I have been a bit remiss keeping up with blogs I follow...I apologize for that....

    This card is so vibrant love the flower and the way you have made things glisten! Even the kraft diecuts are shaded and glistening!!!

    The bird stamp arrived in the mail and is beautiful...Can't wait to stamp it. I have been a bit absent from creating for a few weeks but have my pain meds adjusted now, so hopefully my problems will be somewhat sorted and I can start again...your stamp will be first.
    It will be sitting out for WOYWW this Wednesday and I will be sure to link it back to your blog. My grandaughter loved it too and has asked for me to stamp her off a couple of images:) I babysit tomorrow so will bring them with me to keep her busy this week!
    Thanks again for hosting that RAK...It was such a treat to win!
