Feeling the love again! This morning as I was going through my blog subscriptions I ran into this post and Leigh had an incredible tutorial. Part of it was using a glue gun and stamping an image with the glue gun... and this gave me a great idea. Thanks Leigh for the inspiration.
The first thing I did was heat up my glue gun, find an image that I thought was romantic for Valentines day and got out my "non-stick" aluminum foil. I placed the hot glue on the non-stick side of the foil and then stamped the rose. Letting the glue dry a bit I carefully peeled the glue off of the stamp... then I used my Perfect Pearls gold and brushed it over the image.
I cut my black cardstock to the appropriate size then layered it with a piece of mulberry red paper. I sent a piece of gold shimmering paper through the cuddlebug to emboss it. I had a foamy layered embellishment that I'm not so sure where I got it from and layered it with gold pigment ink. Then I glued the glue image onto this little foam pattern piece. Lifting one corner and attaching it with brads, I then stamped the "true love" image from one of my "g" Clear Stamps set in gold with gold embossing powder, then embossed it. I find this card very romantic and beautiful. I may just give this one to my hubby for Valentines day.
