Hello House Peeps!!! 

Did you know there are 5 Wednesdays this month????  When there are 5 Wednesdays in a month, the final challenge of the month is a sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built.    We hope you'll come over and play along.  

The stamps I used to create this card RI #6806-U "Sheet Music" , which was heat embossed with white embossing powder on red card stock, and #3902-G "My Heart Sing" for the sentiment.  I used an older heart die from Spellbinders to create the hearts and adhered them to a paper heart shaped doily.  

I hope you found some inspiration today.  You'll find more at the blogs of my team mates.  Play them a visit and see their awesome creations.  For all the details on how to enter the challenge please click on THE HOUSE.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there TJ fans!  I have a Valentine for you.  

The Technique Junkies Stamps I used to create this card were "French Sentiments Set of 4" , from the January 2019 Release  and  for the background, this awesome stamp, "Ornate Swirls" .   

{Enabler alert!!!  You get a 10% discount on these stamps and your full order by using my personal discount code TJ10CHERI.  Easy peasy!!!! }

To create this card, I  used my MISTI and first stamped the "Ornate Swirls"  on a cream colored card stock layer with a combination of Distress Oxide Inks.  I was looking for a deep rose.  After stamping in the "rose" combination, I then stamped again using a brown color Distress Oxide Ink creating the vintage look I was going for. 

On another cream panel I heat embossed the word Je t'aime, from the French Sentiment Set of 4 with a cream embossing powder and inked over it with the same ink combination of colors.  When dry, I used some older heart dies and cut the sentiment out as well as a scalloped heart to place behind it. 

I hope you found some inspiration here today.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget your discount on any and all Technique Junkies Stamps using my discount code!
