Lots of Love

Today I'm up on the Sweet n Sassy Blog  sharing two fun cards Valentine cards with you!
My first card is pretty quick and easy to create. I used one of the heart tiles from the Texture Tiles 5 set to create an embossed background and then added some fun die cut - distressed hearts to the front.

Supplies and Tools:

My second card features the adorable sloth from Lots of Love -- Isn't he just the cutest?! 

To create my background I embossed a piece of kraft card stock  with a fun heart
embossing folder  and then swiped my moonlight white ink over top.
The sloth was embossed in black embossing powder and painted with Sonnet water colours. 
After fussy cutting him, I replaced the stamped strings with some fun baker's twine ones! 

Supplies and Tools:
  • Lots of Love (Sweet n Sassy Stamps)
  • Valentine Set #2 Embossing Folders (Sizzix)
  • Lace Hearts Dies (Spellbinders) 
  • Nested Hearts Cut Ups (The Cat's Pajamas)

  • Sonnet Water Colours

That first card is so deliciously warm and cosy in the red and kraft, Esther, with fabulous texture and dimension ... and that little sloth holding tight to his heart shaped balloons is just adorable on your second card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

wow Esther, these are superb. I just love the one for Time Out-so much texture-fab idea to use the corrugated card and this colour is picked up with the little touch of twine! Superb background and so good to see doily and how you added colour to it so it blends in so well. Wonderful design. Thanks for joining Time Out

Oh my goodness the first one is beautiful, I so love the heart background and your 3 different hearts with colors and texture look so great together and like the splattering on them, the font on the sentiment is so elegant!
The second card is just too cute and brought a big smile to my face, he just looks very happy!
