Another Stemeplglede project for Quixotic Paperie

I have made another card for Elaine at Quixotic Paperie using the gorgeous Stempelglede Grunge Flourish Hearts set together with some sentiments from the new sentiments set Just a Note. They are such a perfect compliment to the Stempelglede stamps and there are some really lovely sentiments, I know I'm going to be using them A LOT!

This card was inspired by one of the sentiments in the set, "If I had a rose for every time I thought of you I'd be picking roses for a lifetime". Isn't that a lovely thing to say!?!? It immediately made me think of cutting out one of the central hearts and filling it with tiny roses. I've used the gorgeous sketch at Crafting Life's Pieces for my card as I thought it was perfect for adding some extra interest to the card.
I have used the small flourish from the hearts set around the edges of all the papers and I've cut out the central heart of the heart flourish stamp. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here's a close up of the sentiment, stamped with victorian velvet distress ink. The heart border is a Martha Stewart punch and you can see here I've added stickles to the swirls on the base paper. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and I've just noticed as I'm typing that one of the gems has fallen off the centre of it - oops!

The card opens to reveal another panel, stamped with the same stamps as the front and this is where I've added the roses.

You can then open the card again further and inside I have used the same stamp too only this time I've replaced the centre with the one I cut from the front so that it has a white background for some contrast.

I just love the detail of Stempelglede stamps, how gorgeous is all that scrollwork on the heart!?

I decided to use another sentiment from the Just a Note kit and have mounted the oval onto a fancy tag for an ornate sentiment panel.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! If you would like to own some of these stunning stamps yourself click here to take you straight to the Quixotic Paperie Stempelglede section. x

Jane - you are so talented and clever and your cards are amazing! However, I have a complaint - you are costing me a fortune as I always want to buy the stamps you use! This card really is stunning. Tracey T x
