It's Love

Yes "Romance is in the Air" is still here. Our challenge is running one more week so you have plenty of time to enter. We have some more inspiration for you.
My card uses one of my favorite crafting items 3D paper tole flowers. This is an item that my sponsor for this challenge Of My Heart carries. It is hard to see in the photo, but the flowers have 3-4 layers. I used liquid nail which is clearer than silicone to separate the layers. I think the additon of the flowers really gives a romantic feel to my card. The image is from Dezinaworld. I did quite a bit of cropping on the image. Lastly a little of baker's twine finishes off the card..

This card is also being entered in Crafting When We Can's Love Challenge and Gingerloft Challenge Love is in the Air challenge.
I decided to make some tags for week 2 of "Romance is in the Air" and I really had a lot of fun with these. I stamped the colored tags from Shabby Cottage Studios with a stamp called "dream text"from Stampendous. The vintage images are from Dover Publications (every week they share free images!). As you can see I've also used various other embellishments from my stash of Valentine themed goodies. I'm loving this theme and I hope you are too.
I've used a tag die cut to make several "layers" of tags to mount this great vintage image on along with some scraps of paper, skeleton leaves, love ticket and old lace. I love the vibrant colours of the image so I tried to make the embellishments compliment those bright colours.
"LOVE Hanging"
This hanging was created on a metal sign and blinged up with lots of "love"-ly elements! Every piece was altered...either with Distress Inks/Stains or alcohol inks. The roses started out as white wedding flowers that I altered using Distress Stains and Stickles.
Romance without words
The card is built around an image from: On The House. It is so telling and so very romantic. I cut it with Nestabilities oval shapes and glittered it around the edges. I layered it on Authentique patterend paper cut with a Sizzix Tim Holtz Alteration die and adorned it with some paper and fabric flowers and a lace bow.
