More Pink & Chocolate Paisley!

Since both DH and DD were gone for an entire day yesterday (they went to Amsterdam!) I got to stamp all day! Of course, since it's still Valentine's time, I made more valentines, and of course used more pink and brown. I promise, I'll put those colors away soon!!

For this card I used my Polka Dots & Paisley set again. I used Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White CS, and Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery inks. For the flower image, I stamped the center image first, then just kept stamping without re-inking for the other 2. I like the slowly fading look. After putting the card mostly together, I decided it needed a greeting, so Pulled out the Find Joy... stamp and stamped away. Oh no...not again! I stamped it upside down. Fortunately, my celery strip hadn't been on too long, so I was able to gently lift it up and flip it around. While it was supposed to be positioned closer to the top, it still works where it is, and I was able to salvage the card! Yeah!! Of course, I had already put the ribbon on, but it was easy enough to slide underneath. Phew! I hate to waste good cardstock, you know?!

So, this is one of the cards I created to send out to all my wonderful downline members. I actually made a card for each and every one (ok, so I only have 5 - not so difficult for me right now!) but I wanted them all to know I am thinking about them! Thanks ladies!! I hope you enjoy your cards!!

Later, I'll post some of the cards I made yesterday to send to friends and family in the States for Valentine's day. Have to download the photos still!



  1. Thank you Jana for my beautiful paisley card - I noticed you even put pink pink-flowered stamps to mail - one of which is a bleeding heart! You are so detail-oriented. . . and which clever parent did you inherit that from ? ! ? SPB
