Tuesday Trigger and Friday Flair


Happy snowy Friday! Well, not everywhere, but certainly here in southern and central Ontario. I'd wanted to make something to link up with Unity's Friends with Flair last week... but I had nothing. All week, nothing. I looked at challenges, blogs... nothing. Finally yesterday I decided to continue the slow work of cataloging my stamps, and since it's February, thought I would do all my heart stamps. And just as I'd hoped, that started the creative brain working again! Combined with this week's Moxie Fab World trigger photo, this card resulted:




From Cath's trigger, I took the colours, the heart image and all that clean white space. Using two pinks and a teal, I made a little bokeh-style background with sponge daubers. The milk and cookies image is watercoloured and paper-pieced (the chocolate chips just didn't look right in black!). And I just had to add a little gloss to the tiny heart on the glass. Now I have two valentine cards to choose from to give to my husb next week! 
And if I get stuck without ideas again, maybe some Friends with Flair browsing will kickstart the creativity again! Have a great weekend. 

Supplies: white, teal & Stampin' Up kraft cardstock, Unity September 2011 Kit of the Month (All Seasons) stamps, Memento angel pink, rose bud & teal zeal, Memories black & vintage photo distress inks, pop-dot tape, Glossy accents

Awww...so sweet. I haven't seen these stamps before, but now I see they're from a KOTM (I can never keep up on those!). The way you colored the image is great and I like the little Glossy Accent on the heart. And the bokeh background? You know I love, love that!
