Jeweled Valentine

I've been playing around with new stamps and stuff, and I'm just a bit frustrated. I have some really great ideas, but I just can't seem to get them to work. Some days it's so easy, but others, not so much!

This card is OK, I think, but in my mind's eye, it was much more elegant and regal, opulent even. The stamps are all from Starving Artistamps, and I think those round bezels are just about the coolest thing! I stamped and embossed them in gold and then used metallic markers to color in other precious metal colors. Used as a border like this or singly, they are perfect with stick-on rhinestones.

Have a great day. I've got some chores to attend to, and then hopefully, I'll get to stamp some more later.


  1. Very pretty. It is good to see new cards again! By the way, thanks for my beauty - I got it when we returned home!

  2. I LOVE this card - opulent, elegant and regal describe it perfectly - I think you 'hit the nail on the head'!!!



  3. This is gorgeous, Donna! I love your embossing and jewels!!

  4. It is totally beautiful! It is all that regal and elegant... plus a lot more!


It's so nice to hear from you...thanks for taking the time to comment!
