Love is in the Air and Papercrafters' Linky Party 2

Hello crafty friends, if you are here for the Papercrafters' Linky Party, you can find the linky at the end of this post, simply scroll down.

Are you ready for another "Love" themed card? This week it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts, and with Valentines Day coming up later this week, I selected the theme of "Love is in the Air".
You don't have to make something Valentines Day specific, anything with a 'love' theme goes, so anything with hearts, love sentiments, weddings, anniversaries or engagements and I am sure many more occasions that I can't think of.


I recently saw this super adorable card made by my blogging friend Mervi and I just had to have this cute image! Sadly it is no longer available as a rubber stamp and the only way it is now available is as a pre-colored print. Well, I loved it so much that I decided to get it, even though I prefer to color my own images. I am hoping they will make it available as an uncolored digi sometimes in the future, I did sent them an email requesting it, so who knows...

So since there wasn't any coloring needed here, my card was pretty quick to make. I simply printed the image on Xpress It Blending Card , which is my go-to paper when coloring with copics, but the smooth texture and white bright works really well with pre-colored images as well. I cut it out using a circle die and layered it onto a scallop circle. The patterned papers are from by Prima Marketing, I purchased it over a year ago and can't find a link to it anywhere. The sentiment is from the set So Very Much by Penny Black. A little bit of natural jute twine finishes off the card. Stampin Up card stock was used for the card base and scallop circle.

Morning Ellie,

Well I thought I would enter into the spirit of things and link up to your blog party but seem to have gone amiss somewhere and just have a blank icon so perhaps you could delete it for me as it doesn't want to let me do that. Sorry to mess up!

Back to your Allsorts card, it really is so sweet and I can see why you wanted that image. Great theme this week, thank you.

I love the design of your card. The twine is perfect, as it brings to mind the outdoors!
