Valentine

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge.  This week our cue card is Valentine.  I've been on quite a roll with Valentine cards and having a lot of fun making them!!  My card is also my final entry into the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine Challenge:

  Thanks Paulina, I've had a ton of fun participating!   I received my new Pizza My Heart set from Lawn Fawn yesterday and knew I wanted to play, it is such a fun set!!  I matched it up with my Stitched Banner Duo 2 , Stitched Borders 3 dies and a few Sparking Clear Mix sequins and the card was finished!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Be Mine

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS challenge on SCS.  This weeks challenge is to make a valentine.  I thought this card would be fun for another entry into the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine challenge:

  My Lil' Inker Smooches set was still on my desk.  I got an idea to make a background using some of the sentiments.  I heat embossed with white embossing powder and rotated the sentiments.  I cut out a strip from Stitched Borders 1 and attached it to the back.   I heat embossed the Be Mine and finally added 4 mm droplets in the white area to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

You Make My Tail Wag

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge and The Paper Players challenge.  This week is a theme challenge and the theme is "Raining Cats and Dogs".  I loved the sketch but truth be told, I was stumped until I saw today's theme challenge.  I was able to play with my MFT You Make My Tail Wag stamp set.  I haven't played with it for a while so it was fun to make a card with it!  And color, I haven't done that for a while either!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Love you

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a couple of challenge  First, this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine Challenge:

  I had a lot of fun with this card.  I loved the sketch so, so fun!  I had the idea to use the lips from my Lil' Inkers Smooches stamp set as soon as I saw the sketch.  I used the oval from my Decorative Tags 1,  the outside is up with fun foam (I'm really having fun with that!) I cut out the zig zags using my Stitched Border 1 Dies.  To finish off my card I added 3 different size PPP sequins.
I hope you enjoy and tanks so much for stopping by today!

Thinking of You

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks MFT Card Challenge.  Loved this sketch!  So many ways you can go with this one!  I had a lot of ideas flowing and still didn't know exactly what I was going to do until I sat down at my desk!  I stamped my Damask Background on Cement Gray using my new Cement Gray Pigment ink.  Oh my do I love this ink!!  It takes a bit to dry so I was able to sprinkle clear embossing powder over.  Initially I thought I wanted a more muted background but glad I went this route!  I masked off the Is and You from a sentiment in my Somebunny stamp set, stamped in Cement and heat embossed that as well.  The "you" was cut out, popped up with Fun Foam and I added glossy accents.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
