Sleep Sweet Miranda

Hello Everyone
For my DT sample this week I would like to share something I made as far back as December!
The stamp I worked with is the beautiful Miranda from Julia and Friends. 
This was a gift of a lavender sachet which I made for a friend.
Miranda was stamped onto TAP before transferring to canvas then the fun of embellishing with wintry white and creamy laces and a shabby seam binding bow.
It is now down to the very last hours for entry at the February Stampsmith Challenge but of course that does not mean you do not have time to enter.  Details can be found at TSC Blog but do hurry if you wish to participate.

Her Delicate Heart

Hello Everyone
I am sorry I have been absent for a wee while. Before my enforced absence I created this altered canvas where I used the beautiful Ophelia as my focal.
Ophelia comes in various forms, this one is the medium size version.
I stamped Ophelia onto painted cardstock before layering with an epoxy frame.
Soon, over at my personal Blog,  Adorn  I will be sharing more details about this canvas.
Are you aware that the February challenge is underway at TSC? As always there is a prize of $21 to spend at The Stampsmith on-line store on stamps of your choice so it is well worth entering.

Floral Alphabet Love Card

Hi Smithies,
Continuing the Love/ Valentine theme today with a "love" card.  I used the letters from the Floral Alphabet to spell out the word "love".

The letters are stamped with brown ink on pink Cs.  For more info and photos, check out the full post on my blog, Dreaming and Creating.  I hope your day is filled with love...and some stamping time.

Butterfly Kisses Valentine

Hi Smithies!
Valentine's day is next week!  So, I wanted to give you a bit of  Love inspiration.  I used the super sweet single image, Butterfly Kisses.  I stamped this sweet image on white glossy CS in black die ink.  I mounted the stamped image on a sprayed ink background.

The sentiment is from the Paris Full Sheet.  Check out more info on my blog, Dreaming and Creating.  Hope you are having a great day!
