Star Struck Valentine and the Stitches!

Warmest greetings and happy Valentine's Day wishes to all! I hope your day has been filled with love, creative flair and happiness! 

Also, my warmest welcome to my newest followers - thank you from the bottom of my heart for wanting to share my creative journey.

Today I over at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L I am sharing my  Valentine's card I made for my dearest Hubster :). You can find the full details here.

My hubby has recently fallen in love with star gazing and astro-photography (yes, I know, I’m no longer his only love lol). I’ve been thinking long and hard about what to get him for Valentine’s Day as I wanted something that reflected his new interest. But how do you find a nice and thoughtful gift in an area that you have no idea about? Luckily I had a thought – I could give him a star! OK, maybe not a star itself, but an opportunity to give one his own name and have it officially registered. And that’s what this card is all about… :).

Click on the photos for a larger view.

My card was inspired by the beautiful flowery compositions you can find over at Joanna's blog W Kartkowym Zaciszu. Joanna (or Asia, she's Polish, too!) often hides her beautiful flowers under lifted layers  of paper - and I absolutely love this look!

Here are the supplies I used:

Adhesive Sheets 4×6″, DODZ™ – 3D, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, 3D Foam Squares – White Mix, E-Z Dots® Mini Permanent, 3D Foam Stars, 3D Foam Hearts, Crafty Power Tape

Card base - old CD folder 

Music Motif Stamps & Template, Micro Glitters – Stampendous
Free clear stamps - Craft Stamper Magazine
Treble Clef die – Marianne Design
Flowers – Prima
Ribbon – May Arts
Digital WordArt – Tlc Creations, Rain Drop Echo Designs

Oh, and before I forget. On Sunday I will be at the NEC Birmingham at the Craft Hobby & Stitch International show. I will be mostly hanging around the stand H46 with Woodware UK and Stampendous. If you are in Birmingham on Sunday - be sure to stop by and say 'hello'. I would love to meet you in person!

Have a wonderful weekend, free from any bad weather conditions!

Big crafty hugs

I'm a little late arriving here Joanna but so pleased I didn't miss this wonderful creation you made for your hubby.

I was sent ticked for Stitches but alas not able to make it today, otherwise I would have tried to touch base with you. But I have been busy on the Stampendous front on my blog the last few days so flying the flag that way.

Thank you so much for joining in at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping challenges.

It's a beautiful card... what a fantastic collection of astronomical quotes - and especially the one about the stars and music on the front. Love the tip about the flowers and papers - and will take a look at Joanna/Asia's site - thanks for the link.

Didn't realise it was a direct "translation" - so is that what's happening when I leave a comment for my Polish friend Kasia and it comes up with Barry as the "translation"?!
