Shopping Our Stash - Something Valentiny

Hello, Crafty Peeples,

This week at SOS, we want you to create something Valentiny!  Yes, this does leave a lot open to interpretation, so your creative mojo can run wild!  Here is where my mojo took me!

 The original sentiment for this cards was "a true love story never ends" but I did not like the way it looked when I stamped it on the heart.  Since I had already committed to the clock and newsprint, I spent 45 minutes looking through my rubber stamps for a sentiment that worked.  This Forever Stamp was in the second stamp bin and, thank goodness, it was the first stamp I touched.  The minute I stamped it onto my scrap paper, I knew it was the ONE!

 I really love Tim's Cabinet Cards and I am glad that he has created one with a smaller footprint,  These large ones require a lot of embellishing.  When I want a cabinet card, I usually make it myself in a smaller size.  It is great that now I can get Tim's with the cool graphics.

Decided I wanted to leave my Roman Numerals in tack, it looked so cool.  The most difficult part of this design was finding the right embellishment to bring balance.  Nesting one of the roses in cheese cloth in the upper right corned was perfect.  I did not make a tag with this cabinet.  The newsprint paper is a glossy stock and the effect(in real life) is pretty cool.

THE BACK STORY
Cabinet Card:  Tim Holtz Cabinet Card Frames
Designer Paper: DCWB The Haberdash Stack
Dies:  Marianne's Craftables "Clock Work"
Memory Box "Cupid Heart"
Memory Box "Twirled Heart"
Fibers, Ribbon and Flower:  Really Reasonable Ribbons
Misc: Ink- Tim Holtz DI "Vintage Photo", Momento "Rich Cocoa"

  3. Again, I don't know how you shabby chic people do all that layering and have it look so good. I think I'll stick with CAS and leave all that fussy stuff to you. :)
