Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start! Today I have a couple of cards for you with Hearts in mind, as I am playing along with the Twofer Challenge this month where they are celebrating their Second Anniversary! Congrat Darnell and team! You know how much I love this challenge site and I hope you are around for many more years to come. I am also going to link one of my cards up over at CAS Stencil where they asked us to use a “New” stencil. The cards all began with this great Die cut from Stampin UP called Bloomin Heart. It’s so intricate and is pretty all by itself.
Fo the wood grain Valentine card, I added some red florals that come along in the die set along with a LOVE die cut from Simon Says Stamps. I used both red and gold paper for a layered look. The YOU sentiment is from Verve along with the banner die which I doubled as well.
For the floral birthday card, I used this new stencil called Lovely Lace from Gina K. Designs. I posted a card yesterday using the same stencil and that was the first time I had used it. I made about five different panels in an array of colors, as they were so pretty and easy to do. I just love the Pink Oxide ink called Worn Lipstick, don’t you? The heart die is also sponged with the Oxide Ink along with the Victorian border die on the bottom. The YOU letter dies and the solid Heart Die are both MFT. The sentiment is Verve.
I hope you have a very creative day and thanks so much for popping in! Nanc’
