See what lovely creations the team inked up this week:
Jenny Gropp - You are here!

 I used one of the sweet new Zenspirations stamps, Greet Each Day, that was released at CHA. I thought this could be used for a Valentine but also an anytime greeting as well. It's a fast little color and you trim it to fit nicely in the Square Shaker Frame Die. I used a Chestnut Roan Cats Eye to ink the edges of the panels. It's hard to see but I added a few die cut Heart Stems under the bow to embellish. I die cut them out of red card stock and just used a brown Copic to color the stems. 

The image was colored and OOOPS!... I'm sorry I forgot to take a pic of the colors!! I stamped the little bird a second time and carefully cut it out to pop up, adding a little extra dimension. I also added a little Clear Wink of Stella Shimmer to the bird and heart.... can't resist Stella!!!! I hate that it does not show up well in pictures! 

 I used a Spellbinder's Grand Label One to create the liner on the inside. I trimmed off the top of the die so that it would not interfere with the scored hinge of the card.
On the inside, I added a little sentiment from the Clear Stamp Set Heartbeats.
