Heartbreaker Edwin Valentine  


My very first blog post!  I'm so excited...and nervous.  This is WAY out of my comfort zone.  Normally, I just share my creations with my family and close friends but now, here I am sharing it with the world...or the few people who may happen to stumble across my blog.  :o)

So this is it, I decided to try my hand at this super-cute "Tag" card I saw on the amazing Cheryl's blog who saw one on the uber-talented Claudia's blog who got the tutorial from...well, you get the picture!

For this card, I used Heartbreaker Edwin from Magnolia stamps.  I used Stampin' Up! and K & Co. dp.  The hearts are cut using a super cute CB die (thanks Kylie!), the ribbons are from my stash, the rhinestones and jumbo eyelet are SU, and the doily was a gift from my BFF and card making cohort, Jennifer.  :o)

I colored Edwin using SU re-inkers.  I would really love to get some distress inks to try my hand at BUT since I have every single color of re-inker (and In Color) I might as well use what I have!

The sentiment is from a dollar bin at Joann's and the pretty roses are from WOC.

A little peek at the inside with my FAVE tag die from Magnolia.

So there you have it.  My very first post!  I hope this is the beginning of a very long blogging, card making, and crafting journey that you would like to join me on!
