Lexicon of Love

Here is a Valentine I created using my favorite color...eggplant. Any shade of purple is usually the first color I gravitate to when creating, so sometimes I must restrain myself so that I give other colors an equal opportunity.

Speaking of branching out and trying other colors, I've recently come across an awesome website that helps you coordinate many different Stampin' Up! color combos. All you do is type in what color(s) you want to use and it recommends all sorts of companion colors. I've added a permanent link here on my blog under favorite websites, but I'll add it here in this post also so that you can check it out. It's worth book marking I think.

OK...on to my card! I used the Floral background stamp inked in Elegant Eggplant to create a tone on tone background. The detail of this stamp is exquisite, it's one of my favorites. I also used Trimtastic embossed in white to create the lace edge, and then stamped "Love You" over and over across the bottom. The "Love You" stamp is from Fancy Flexible Phrases. For the main image, I used the cherish stamp from Lexicon of Love and stamped the heart in Rose Red behind it. To finish this off and add more detail (I'm sure you know I like to add detail!) I did some faux stitiching around the edges of the Rose Red mat and added some white organdy ribbon.

I know just the person who will love receiving this Valentine...but I can't say who that is in case this person actually looks at my blog. Which is doubtful, since I don't think anyone actually looks at this...I mean I've only gotten one comment so far and that was from my dear Aunt. Shout out to my Auntie Carol! Thanks for making a comment on my blog! Is this a blatant attempt on my part to solicit comments??? Heck yeah! I'd like to know if anyone is actually reading this stuff or if I'm wasting my time. Speaking of time...I need to get busy on finishing some of my organizational projects I have going on here in my house. (even tho I'd much rather be stamping!) Enjoy your day!
