FS158: HamiltonGal

This week's featured stamper (FS158) is Laurie (aka HamiltonGal). I loved her Inspiration Challenge (IC216) card. It was a beautiful, clean and simple sympathy card. I knew I could re-create the card as a fun, whimsical valentine for my love...Todd. After nearly 25 years's nice to make him a simple card. I got him a three pack blu-ray of Pirates of the Caribbean. Romantic, huh?

This card features papertrey ink papers. It starts with a kraft base, a sweet blush layer, then a dark chocolate layer (cuttlebug'd with swiss dots). The sweet blush circle has a heart punched piece of dark chocolate cardstock (also cuttlebug'd with swiss dots). Under the heart, I layered some pink sheer polkadot ribbon. I added a button with some more of the same ribbon. The side of the card has the same simple knot with some satin ribbon. The sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge's valentine set called {Hearts & Hugs}. It is stamped in PTI dark chocolate ink on kraft paper.

So the changes from Laurie's card:
colors -- used blush instead of navy
added more ribbon and a button, used punched image for main image, not a stamped image
added the sentiment onto a banner instead of directly on the card

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
