I have not made very many Valentine's in recent years, but this year I have gotten into it and made quite a few. Now, I have to actually mail them to people! I used this "Audrey" image from The Stamping Boutique for my card.
I think I got all 5 colors in there: red, pink, fuchsia, lavender, white. Check!
I used Spellbinder's Nesties to cute the ovals and little squares. The scallop square die set is new. I just placed an order for some new Nesties (from CropStop). I love those dies. Whoever invented them was a genius! The paper is from the 6x6 Sugar Rush pad of Basic Grey that I got a few weeks ago. The little sentiment is CTMH.
I have a second card to show you today. I am one of the the Card Sous Chefs at Apron Strings Designs this year, and ASD is the sponsor this week over at Sketch Inspiration. The DT were asked if they wanted to contribute a sample and I said yes, if I could do a card. This is the card I made from their sketch.
I used the ASD January Bigger kit, the Bella Blvd paper line. Everything on the card is from the kit, except for the DMC floss that I tied my buttons with and the Fiskars scallop punch I used to make the small scallops on the tan paper. Is this house paper cute or what?!
I was on the ASD DT for 2009 also, and I purchase a kit each month on top of what I get to DT with...and I have to say in 13 months of kits, I have only had a few paper lines that were not "my thing." I pretty much LOVE what comes in these kits every month, and they are well worth the price. This year I get to DT with the All Year Cheer card kits and they are jam packed with goodness for card making. I'll be DT-ing the March card kit, so check up with me mid-March to see what I make with that!
