LPS Monday and Another Chance to WIN!

Happy Monday! Getting kind of a late start today, it's our last day in "paradise", we are flying home to the frozen tundra tomorrow morning. *sigh* All good things must end I guess. :)

Well Monday means another goodie from {Little Paper Shop}! You know how much I love my LPS stamps! This card uses the {Chirp} set, perfect for Valentine's Day! I pulled it together using one of the Taylored Expressions sketches, TECC52TV. I didn't bring my Nestabilities with me on vacation, but I did visit a little stamping store by my mom's house and used some of her punches to get a couple of ovals to play with while I was here. That worked out perfectly!

I stamped the birds onto my oval using Palette Noir. I made the clouds on that same oval using a cloud template that I made and a sponge. Once that was set I stamped the birds again on scratch paper, colored with Copics and cut them out. Added dimensionals and put them right over the top of the original stamped images.

Since this was my largest oval size, I had to cut another one the same size in half and pull it apart to make the mat underneath. I colored a couple of white silk flowers with the same color Copics and added the red glittered Primas that I had made awhile back using Lauren's tutorial. Popped them on next to the main image, stamped the sentiment and added some pink bling of course.

Ok, here's what you've been waiting for!! There is another fabulous sketch posted on the LPS blog {click} and if you make a card using that sketch you will be entered for a chance to win one of the BRAND NEW releases!! You have until Monday, February 16th at 8 AM to make a card and link it up to the post on the LPS blog. Gotta love free stamps!! Julia is so generous and there's some fun stuff coming out next week!!

Have a great day everyone!

You are so creative! I never would have thought to cut the oval in half to make a frame! That is the coolest idea ever! This is just so awesome! You did a great job of coloring the birds and laying out this card! Amazing! have a safe flight tomorrow!
