Another Lucy Card

Hi Everyone,
It's is Stampsmith Challenge time again. We took a couple weeks off over the Holidays. (Click over and see who won the blog candy!!) And, now we are back with a new challenge. The challenge theme is:
Love.


That would include love of a child, marriage, love of a pet, etc.... And since it is the 15th of month, you must use a Stampsmith Stamp. For my love card I used one of the Lucy Stamps from The Stampsmith Shop.



Materials:

CS: Poppy Parade from Stampin' Up, Med Red from Bazzill, glossy white

DP: GCD Studios

Inks: Black dye, Tattered Rose, Fired Brick, and Vintage Photo from Ranger.

Lucy is stamped with black dye ink on glossy white paper. I cut the image into a heart shape and distressed with inks. I added a border of red Stickles, some DP, ribbon, pearls, and lace. Here are some detail photos.



As this is a Valentine's Day card, I used appropriate sentiments on the inside. Both are from My Sentiments Exactly.



Other Challenges for I Love Lucy:

Top Tip Tuesday: Anything Goes

Cute Card Thursday: Monochrome

AI Factory: Anything Goes

Do you Stack Up: Distress It

Southern Girls: Totally Loved Up

Phindy's Place: Valentine's

The Stampman: Distressing

Stamp Something: Anything Goes

Creatallicious Challenge: Use ribbon and a Love theme

The Secret Crafter: With Love

Mark's Finest: Hearts

Stamping Vacation: Romantic Style

Really Reasonable Ribbon: Heart Theme


Hope everyone is having a great day! Love ya!

Karen
