The sentiment is from a Pure Innocence (MFT) stamp set, Tutu Cute...and the paper is an oh so beautiful page from the Oh So Lovely paper pad by Kaisercraft.
The little extras are: Prima brad/button in the middle of the white cording, Wild Orchid roses, pearls, and white splatter courtesy of Hero Arts Unicorn paint and Tim Holtz Splatter brush.
The next picture shows the card's back section, made from white card stock.
Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!

I usually paper-piece dress these little girls just because I love to put "almost real" clothes on them. It reminds me of how much I loved to play with paper dolls as a little girl. I think that was actually the beginning of my love for crafting. This little Miss looks like she just got through signing the Valentine's card she made for her parents!
The heart on her card is decorated with Blush Micro Beads (Finnebair by Prima)...boy, those micro beads fly everywhere, don't they?
I painted the background paper (Beau Jardin by Penny Black) with gesso and then stenciled some hearts at the top of the paper (from SU). The medium I used to stencil was Spun Sugar Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) mixed with embossing paste. Does that count as embossing? Also, I used the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush to splash a bit of Hero Arts White Unicorn paint onto the background paper. Such a cool brush!
The small sentiment is heat-embossed in white on brushed silver paper and then swiped with Silver Wink of Stella glitter.
Can you see the lovely rose button from Lemoncraft behind the white Tulle and branch? I love those little buttons! The rest of the flower decor is undergirded not only with white Tulle, but also some cheesecloth.

Here are the Copics:
Enjoy your weekend and God Bless You!

The tag is hanging from a Tim Holtz flip-frame...I do love the silver on it and thought it was a great way to display the tag...I made my tag shorter than Tim's because I had every intention of putting it on a card, but now I'm not so sure!
I embossed the foil with the Dotted Lattice folder by Taylored Expressions and had no Tim Holtz paint, only stain (which does not work on foil)! I did find a black spray from Heidi Swapp, but it didn't work in the same way as Tim's tutorial! Egad!
So to make up for what I didn't have, I added on Tim's Heirloom Rose, a Game Spinner and an Adore Token attached to a black cord bow. Oh...and an Industrious corner sticker...
The clock stamp is a never-used single stamp from Unity. Part of the heat embossing method was to stop heating the embossing ink before it got shiny...difficult to control! Then mark over the image with chalk. Well, I tried!
Next time, I'll be watching for the beginning of the challenge AND I'll be picking up some Tim Holtz paint...I'm sure I'll need it in the future!
Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

There is Wink of Stella Clear glitter painted over many of the images and 3D Crystal Lacquer by Sakura on the bottom point (to strengthen it!) and on the top of the candles. I didn't realize the point at the bottom of the card might not be a good idea because it would have to bear the weight of the card when it was stood upright! The lacquer and the pearl helped to stabilize the point.
I colored the candle flames with a Copic marker, Y19 and brushed over them with Wink of Stella. The candles were "decorated" with a diagonal stripe embossing folder.
There are ornaments and candles on the tree...I kept the ornaments white with glitter and colored the aura around the candle flames with a yellow Kirarina Wink pen.

I love papers with roses...in fact, it's hard for me to use anything else! The roses image was die-cut with Memory Box Pinpoint Scalloped Circles (as well as the larger circle). The rose paper and the tag came from a 6x6 pad by ODBD called Blushing Rose Collection. I cut the tags down with a label die, Vintage Sentiment die by Spellbinders (for JustRite).
The two birds were die-cut from Cottage Cutz Birdcage and Two Birds.
I don't think these birds will fit into those bird houses! Maybe they are just passing by!
I used a distressing tool and Old Paper distress ink for the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink for the tiny rose...the darker areas of the rose were swiped with a Copic marker.
I don't know the source of the ribbon...I think it might have come from one of the several kits I've ordered....it is an ivory muslin.
Here are the Copics I used...
One last picture...this is my dear Ruby...she insists on sitting on the chair next to me in the morning. I think because it is chillier now...sometimes I wrap her in the blanket she is lying on!
Mojo Monday #431 (sketch)
Frilly and Funkie (shabby card with musical theme)
Word Art Wednesday #218 (Anything Goes)
Addicted to Stamps #177 (use markers, paints, pencils, etc.)
Take care...stay warm...and God's blessings for your weekend!

The image is a digi-image from A Day for Daisies...this one is called Flowers in a Teacup (however, looks more like a mug to me!).
The Prima embellishments and flowers to the right of the cup are from the kit....and check the bird on the paper...I think he is looking at the flowers!
I ink-distressed the square die (Layered Lacey Squares by ODBD) with Old Paper distress ink and splashed a bit of Gesso (Claudia Hellmuth Studio) around the card.
That's Wink of Stella clear glitter wrapped around each pearl.
Other embellishments: Hemptique cording, Sprightly Sprigs die (Verve), Ivory Tulle..
Here's a look at the Copics...
Well, now we move on with the week...remember to give thanks to God for His many blessings!

The sketch would be a cute CAS (clean and simple), however I prefer cards that have a bit of
"foof-a-la" to them!
I die-cut the circle from Stitched Circle Frames (MFT) with paper by American Crafts called Christmas Glitter. Believe it or not, I don't have a source for my background paper! It was a Christmas pad, but apparently in all the hubbub of making Christmas cards...the cover was separated from the papers and I must have thrown it away...Aargh!
The die-cut poinsettia, leaves, and berries are all one die (Holiday Floral Spray (Cottage Cutz). I placed red pearls (Kaisercraft) on all the berry spots. I love pearls of any color! And that is Lemon Flower-Soft in the middle of the poinsettia.
I added the large frost-covered berries and the red-tinged rose (Candied Apple Distress Ink) to some white tulle...tied together with metallic red thread.
Above is a little closer look...that's Wink of Stella clear glitter on the poinsettia.
Of course, I had to put some lace down so I added the white crochet lace over the green seam binding.
Next is the message on one of the dies from Vintage Labels Seven (Spellbinders). I spritzed it with WPlus9 Shimmer Spray. The sentiment is one of the stamps from Christmas Joy by Sweet N' Sassy.
I didn't use many Copics, but here is a pix of the ones I used...
And last but not least, I want to share a little tree I made at Christmas....I had hoped to make a few... HOWEVER..it wasn't as easy as it looks. I think, by the end I got the hang of it, though!
Take a Bough dies by Concord & 9th...in addition to buying the skewer (trunk), mini pot (bought online), and tiny rocks/crystals (Michaels) to go into the pot! I put some liquid glitter on the edges of the branches, but you could also decorate with snow, teeny ornaments, etc. With the pot, it's about 7 inches high.
God Bless your weekend and I'll see you soon!
