25th Anniversary RemARKable Blog Tour - Best of Love

Welcome to the RemARKable 25 Years with Stampin' Up! Blog Tour!  You may have arrived here from Lee Bradford's blog.  What a great job she did with her creation!

As part of their 25-year anniversary celebration, Stampin' Up! is bringing back some favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will be released -one set per month-during 2013.  Along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!

This month the RemARKables are showcasing February's theme "Best of Love."  I've made two projects with this stamp set.  Here's the first one:

I painstakingly stamped the "love" for the background using the stamp-a-ma-jig many times.  It was well-worth the effort.  To create the heart, I inked the entire stamp in Old Olive, then colored the leaves with Always Artichoke and the flowers with Melon Mambo and Real Red.
Here's my second creation:

I inked up the hearts with Melon Mambo and "stamped off" two of them.  No matter what I did, my ribbon kept wiggling for the camera, LOL!

Let me know what you think of these two cards.  Do you have a favorite?

Next up on the RemARKable tour is Tamra Davis.  You can click the image below or go to to see what goodies she has created for you.

Happy Stamping!

Both are gorgeous! I really like the multicolored "love" one though.

Susan, I can't pick a favorite. I love them both. The top one I love the colors you used and the colored 'love' you painstakingly added.
The second card is so sparkly. Beautiful job.
