CR84FN#69 - Love Grows Where You Plant It


Hello and welcome friends to CR84FN#69!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a brand new year! We have Lisa Snowdy joining us as our Guest Designer at CR84FN for the month of January. You can see her first card with us on the CR84FN blog and also on Lisa's very own blog:- 'Adventures in Paperland'. Do drop by and leave her a lovely comment if you have the time :)

We have a really beautiful colour combo to play with for the next two weeks. Isn't it gorgeous?

Here's my take...


I used some gorgeous Glitz Design floral patterned paper for the background and lots of beautiful Waltzingmouse Stamps. I die cut a label using Spellbinders Labels 2 and used a co-ordinating 'Very Vintage Labels No.2 stamp set' designed by Waltzingmouse to created a border. I then stamped the beautiful heart wreath image from the 'My Heart'  in Lavender ink by SU! and fussy cut around the detail of those leaves. You can just see the sweet woodgrain heart image that I used to stamp inside the heart shape using Antique Linen ink - just for a little added interest. The 'Love' sentiment is from the 'My Heart' set and stamped in Raspberry ink. The 'Grows Where You Plant It' part of the sentiment is from the 'Vintage Garden Seed Packet' stamp set. I used some sweet Bazill dotty cardstock to created the centre panel. The shaped bottom edge I created using a die from the spellbinders Labels 8 nestabilities set.


I tied some pretty cream lace in a bow and added some Hydrangea Daisy flowers from The Ribbon Reel. I used some little pink gems to finish and there you have it!

Come play along if you have the chance - the colours are beautiful and so fun to create with!!

You can find all the details on the CR84FN blog. We always love to see you there...and really appreciate all your amazing comments!

Happy New Year!!
