Homeade Valentines Oh My!

Although, I rarely am on time with Christmas Cards, I love to send Valentine's to those I love. Since I met Bubba, the holiday means a bit more! Sappy, I know.

In the mail this week, I received a very special card from my upline, Connie. She sends out cards to her top ten each month. She makes the cutest, neatest, and classiest cards. Enough chatter, here it is:

When this card opens, it gets cuter:

Stamps: Love You Much
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Round Scallop Punch, Two way glue, dazzling diamonds, 1 1/3 Circle Punch, scoring blade on 12" paper cutter, Ridiing Hood Red Double Striped Ribbon

The other valentine I have to show you is one I made for the New Years Eve's Challenges on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge was to make a "black tie" style card using Black, Silver, and White. I immediately thought of the set called from the Holiday Mini Catalog (which you can still get in the new Spring-Summer Catalog)! HOW COOL! Bubba is a Raider fan and silver and black have been a new part of my color palette the past few years!

Shhh! Don't tell him! I doubt he reads this, so he won't know when he gets it February 14th!
Paper: Basic Black, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Heat gun, Silver Elastic Cord (only available in the Holiday Mini until January 31!), Corner Rounder Punch, medium oval punch, large oval punch

The picture just didn't turn out well. The flash took out the background imaging I did on the Basic Black with versamark and the large heart from that set.

I hope you are finding time to make projects that help spread the love!

Just a reminder: the Fall-Winter Catalog ends January 18th. Be sure to place any last minute orders of retiring merchandise or Inventory Blow-out orders ASAP!

Happy Stamping!
