Mambo Love

Hi there!  I have a card to share made for the current challenge at Just Add Ink (Just Add Ink), where the theme is to use "Something New to You".  With products from the new Occasions catalogue, this requirement was not a problem!  I pulled out the beautiful Bloomin' Hearts thinlit to make another Valentine.

Last week I made a multi-layered and rather busy card (link here Be Mine) using this gorgeous thinlit, so today I decided to keep it very CAS.  While I made this as a Valentine for my granddaughter, this could also work as a wedding card.  The base is the wonderful Thick Whisper White card stock, which was then layered with an embossed piece of Whisper White card stock. After the thinlit was cut, I painted it with Clear Wink of Stella for that wonder sparkle.  Seriously, I think I am totally addicted to using it!  The final touches were rhinestones and a bit of ribbon wrapped around the card below the heart.

Thanks so much for looking!  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated.  I've added a link above so you can visit JAI and enjoy all the inspiration.  This week it's actually a blog hop, so do be sure to check it out!

Stef, your card is gorgeous. I love that bright pop of colour on the all white space - such a lovely, textured background too. You're not the only one in love with Wink of Stella. It leaves the perfect, subtle sheen on everything it touches. Thanks so much for joining the blog hop fun over at Just Add Ink this week. x

I love how bold and intricate the die cut heart looks on top of the white background Stef. The sparkle is pretty awesome too. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink for our blog hop.
