What better way to celebrate love, friendship, and the upcoming Valentine holiday than with a special guest designer. Please welcome the talented Amy Sheffer to our blog this week as she showcases stamps and dies from our newest release, Love and Friendship!


Amy’s swing and lovebirds just couldn’t be sweeter! What a great card for Valentine’s Day, just because, or an anniversary.


Amy stamped her love birds, 30-269 So Very Much, using Memento Luxe Teal Zeal ink. She added them to her swing which was hand cut from patterned paper. And what is that beautiful swing hanging from? Our Creative Die, 51-097 Ardor, colored with Copic markers. This is such a clever placement of this die so it can be used as a branch! A watercolor background provides the perfect “sky” and the twine and sequins provide fantastic embellishments to give Amy’s design a finished look.
