Northwoods Valentine Tree

Good Morning, and happy Friday. The sun is shining, we still have a few snow patches, it's cold. Tomorrow there is Heirloom Stamp show in Dululth, Georgia, which is about 2 hrs or less from our home. I waffled about attending, but at the last minute...we're going. It's always fun.

Found an image that was colored last year, just waiting to go onto a card. Needed to get something ready to post this morning, so used a S/B Grand Nestie in the same shape as this image to make a card.

- Northwoods stamp, colored with copics, diecut with a S/B Grand Labels 23, edged with DI while still in the die.

- Glossy accents had already been applied to the hearts, but as there was a package of EK Success puffy heart stickers still on the desk, decided to stick a few on the hanging hearts. Trying to use up this package of stickers. (If you notice the tiny stamp bottom right corner, it is one made for DH to use. Got it in my hand by mistake, as it is shaped just like the one I normally use for cards I create.)

Northwoods stamps are among my favorite stamps to color. The images always stamp out crisp & clean, and I just like the classic styles that the company produces. Guess I am just a traditionalist at heart.

Since it is a Friday, there will be a post for the Fun Friday Challenge later this afternoon. Hope you can pop back over for a quick visit, and I'm off to get things ready for our fun tomorrow. Printed out a list of IO Cover A Card stamps that I have, plus a list of the Memory Box dies...I'm going to try very hard to not duplicate items I already own. We'll see how well I adhere to this plan. As always, thanks for spending time here this morning, and I hope you like today's card. Hugs


  1. I love this card! I recently saw the Northwoods Easter tree and while I loved the stamp it seemed like there was so much going on with it. You showed that these busy stamps can be used and used well. I'll have to pop back for Friday Fun. I could use some Fun this Friday.
