Live, Laugh, Love


There may be snow on the ground and a bitter cold wind, but this Impression Obsession image, Live, Laugh, Love Mailboxes Cling Stamp, has me almost fooled into thinking it's Spring! A girl can dream! I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic's X-Press It white card stock and colored with Copics. The designer papers are from Pink Paislee's Old School Petite Paper Pad (6"x6"). For visual interest, I distressed and tore some edges and added zigzag stitching, burlap string, yellow-gold ribbon, a large scallop border done with My Favorite Things' Jumbo Scallop Border Die-namics die, and a postage border done with a Tim Holtz Plaque & Postage On the Edge Alterations Die.

Wishing you a fantastic weekend!
