The top card is the card I gave to my honey for Valentines Day - I must admit I stole the idea from the new Stampin' Up! catalogue - they have a stamp that says this; I don't have the stamp, but I did have a old Jolee's of the box of chocolates. The inside of the card reads "more than chocolate!". The red heart is repurposed from a cake doily, and the ribbon is from my stash.
The second card is for a challenge over at ISC to make one last Valentine card before you put your stuff away for a year! The stamp is from Hero Arts, the sticker is BoBunny, and the flowers are Prima. I coloured the squirrel with my copics -warm greys, and E31.
The third card uses MME paper, TPC stamp, a flower made from layers of tissue paper that I cut with a spellbinders Peony die, and inked the edges - got this off off SCS, and lots of distress ink.
The fourth and fifth cards are an experiment. I sent white cs and a Glimmer mist screen through my Big Shot, and it left a lovely emboss! It was large enough to make both cards as well.
The fourth card is a scrap of ribbon, another flower made with the peony die cuts, this time made from dictionary pages and inked, and a big brad from the $ store.
The fifth card uses inkadinkado hearts, heat embossed with two colours of Zing emboss powder, and cut out, and a red ribbon from my stash decorated with a stick pin, and some crystals.
Thanks for looking, and I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks to Julie at Verve and Mojo Madness for a great sketch, and a chance in the contest. Every week there are inspiring layouts, and the work of many talented ladies.
Most of the ink is Ranger Distress Ink, and Black Versafine. The stamps and masks are from Tim Holtz, and the inspirational stamp is from Verve. The ribbon is from MME, and the charm is from the $ store. The butterfly stamp is one of my very first stamps that I ever bought, and it's from the $ store too! I coloured the butterfly with my copic markers. It's hard to see, but there is a bit of sparkle on the flower, where I used green stickles.
