Now on to my cards.... I have two to share with you featuring the new Love and Friends Digital Stamp Set that's part of the Heart Bundle deal ON SALE TODAY!


For the first card, I created a background using one of the sentiments from this set. Then, using the "scatter" tool in my photo editing program I added some soft, pink hearts over top.

Supplies and Tools:
Love and Friends Digital Stamp Set (Graciellie Designs)
Heart Template
Paper Crimper (Fiskars)
Sequins
Glitter
Seam Binding
Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide (Ranger)



My second card features the beautiful heart wreath on a white wood embossed background. I colored my digi with prismacolor pencils and added highlights with markers and glitter. I fussy cut the image and popped it up over my wood background with mounting tape.

Supplies and Tools:
Love and Friends Digital Stamp Set (Graciellie Designs)
Prismacolor Pencils
Touchfive Markers
Glitter

I love the bold pink and black of the Valentine card! The wood embossing folder works so well with the wreath.

I love the creative idea you came up with for the background on the first, and the heart wreath is so sweet, pretty embossed background and lovely shimmer on the pretty flower!

Shona Chambers said...

Wow, both of these cards are so perfect for our challenge!! Love the new stamp sets and you really showed off two of them beautifully. The 'love word' background is so cool and the ribbon in bright pink is a wonderful embellishment. Absolutely love the Heart Wreath stamp, its amazing, especially against the white background. And the gold within the flowers is fantastic. I'm so very glad you shared these with us at TIME OUT!
