Be My Valentine

Today's sharing is all about hearts and Valentine's Day. My first share is a white-on-white card using the Lovely Lace embossing folder and heart framelits along with some scallop punched embossed images.
 I love the lacy look the Curvy Corner Trio punch creates.

On the second card, I used one of the Labels Collection framelits to emboss the card front (it's hard to see in the picture) which the Bloomin' Heart sets on. The Bloomin' Heart was created with Blushing Bride cardstock with Crumb Cake ink sponged around the edges and inside to make it vintage looking. Little Rose Red flowers decorate the heart. The banner from the coordinating stamp set, Bloomin' Love, fits perfectly on the heart.
  Again, I love the lacy look the Curvy Corner Trio punch creates.

I hope that you're having a wonderful day!

Crazy About You Valentine

I am loving the new Bloom Heart framelit. It makes a great focal piece for a Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary card. We used this in my Valentine class last week at Snedigar Recreation Center. What a fun group of ladies!! Thank you Cyndy and Irene for organizing such a fun group to stamp with.

Elephant Zoo Baby Card

I'm sharing a baby card using the cute Zoo Baby stamp set. I added watercolor splatters using the splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I inked the elephant stamp up really good with Pacific Point ink. I used a stamping tip that someone passed onto me. They recommended stamping over a mouse pad or some other foamy pad when using the photopolymer stamps to get better ink coverage. It definitely helps to get that good solid ink image.

CS: Whisper White, All Abloom DSP, Pistachio Pudding
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Memento black
SS: Gorgeous Grunge, Zoo Baby, Sweet Essentials
Big Shot: Stitched rectangle framelit (Lawn Fawn)

Have a blessed day!

Lego Block Birthday

Today I'm sharing a boy's Lego-themed birthday card. What a fun card to make with all the bright colors and circles, and who doesn't love Lego's?

 I sponged the edges of all the circles with the same color as the cardstock to help them stand out.

Ink: Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Stazon black
Punches: 1-1/4" Circle
