Text Love




Hmmmmm.....just couldn't decide whether I wanted to upload this card or not. It is one of those cards you aren't sure about. But, here it is.

My card was a case of a card by sistersandie and this is her absolutely gorgeous card. Sandie was the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers last Friday.

The text background is Stampendous Dream Text...see the meaning of love? I stamped some hearts from my PTI Heart Prints stamp set and used the Stampabilities Written I Love You sentiment. Tied a ribbon and added a button.

The ink is Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay and Memento Tuxedo Black. The ribbon is SU Bermuda Bay. I added a bit of Carribean twine from The Twinery.

Oh, das gefällt mir sehr. Ist es eine Valentin´s Karte? Sie ist wunderschön liebe Benzi. Das Türkis, die Herzen und die Schrift passen wunderschön zusammen.

Ganz liebe Grüße, Carmen

I'm glad you decided to post it, because it's a wonderful card with a fresh new idea for using text dsp! I pulled a sheet of that out just yesterday and never did make anything with it, but I may have to case this clever idea now :)TFS

Not sure why you debated putting it up on your blog, Benz - my first impression when it popped up was "ohhhh I LOVE this!" wonderful colors, lots of subliminal sentiments LOL - very pretty! Won't you be my Valentine? hugs, de

it's a beauty!!!!

MaryH said...

Definitely glad you uploaded it. It's beautiful. The pop of the turquoise against that print background is very striking. Also saw the inspiration card, which is truly lovely as well. Yours has a stronger feel, while the inspiration one is more feminine (IMHO). This would be a really good one for a masculine card, but also very effective for a lady as well. I LOVE it! TFS & Hugs

Maria said...

Wow! So glad you uploaded it for it's a beauty! Love the text background and sweet hearts! It's very eye catching and interesting...love it!

Lee-Anne said...

Here's another vote for "so glad you uploaded it" Brenda! This is fabulous...love the color and texture!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, my goodness, Brenda, aren't you the funny one? I took one look at this and gasped and then read that you aren't that keen on it! Of course, the color is dynamite and I have a love of all things textural, so your design with the heart stamping and the bow ... mwah! I'm pinning it, I like it so much; thank heaven you didn't decide not to post it! Enjoy the weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

Desire Fourie said...

This is so creative. Love the hearts stamped over the text and the teal and white is very striking.

Nope, sorry, can't agree with you there! I think it's gorgeous, LOVE that colour (I have a wee skirt that exact shade!) and great BG stamping too :)

Shirley said...

I am glad you uploaded!! I really like your text BG and the hearts you chose for on top too! A really fun and pretty card too! Love those hearts!!
