Shady Tree Sneakies, Day 2!

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog


Back again with a preview of stamps from another fab set from Shady Tree Studios! This set is "Elegant Valentine". Such a beautiful mix of heartfelt sentiments and gorgeous images!

I chose to go with the heart shaped candy box, using the cracked glass tecnhinque after coloring. The bow was painted with pink shimmerz prior to covering with ep. the glittery shine comes through so well! it almost seems to jump out of the little square! :) once I finished 'cracking', I sponged caramel ink over the piece to help distress it. I love the way the ink gets down into the little cracks! the tag was made with a page from a french book, doily sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist, a pink tag, some wired ribbon & tea stained twine, Prima flowers, and vintage buttons. I used my SU! ink squirty tool to add a bit more age to the tag. The beautiful papers are by Prima. The cute little watch is from Making Memories. The ribbon tied at its top is another little coffee stained bit I played around with one day while whipping up a big batch of coffee stained ribbons and trims. 'With Love' is just one of the sentiments in the "Elegant Valentine" set. if you look carefully along each side of the card base, you will see a lovely border that was stamped ever so lightly. this is a fabbylicious stamp from this set that I just could NOT wait to play with somehow! :)

Don't forget that I am giving away one of the new sets, "Sweet Romance", as blog candy!

That is just lovely! I love the way you combined all the elements, and still kept it feminine.
