Well, we have almost wrapped up the first month of 2012 already and I am probably not the only one thinking I've been caught in a whirlwind! Really! Where did January go?!
Yesterday I went out to my pal Alvina's for a fun little card class that she was hosting and made some very cute cards. One of them is going to my hubby for Valentine's day and I can't wait to post it to show you but...not til closer to the day so the fun isn't spoiled!
Today I have another Valentine to share with you. I discovered Tiddlyinks a week or so ago and OMG! The images are so darned cute I couldn't resist grabbing a couple. My post from Friday was also a Tiddlyinks image so obviously I am hooked!
Today's card begins with a 5 x 10 piece of kraft cardstock folded and layered on a 5-1/4 inch square of Bazzill Hopi and layred with a 4-3/4 inch square of DP from My Minds eye Stella Rose Hazel papers. I trimmed the polkadot strip with a scallop edge punched border of the same Bazzill Hopi CS, a bit of ribbon, a punched posy and a chubby button and also added a paper doily before I adhered it in place.
Our sweet little Wren Pot of Love image was printed on Neenah Solar White, colored with Copics and then cut with Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large. I sponged the piece with Summer Sun ink before popping it out of the die and then cut a Petite Scallop Oval Large from Soft Sky cardstock to back it with. This piece is adhered to the card with foam dimensionals.
The sentiment and heart are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White and punched with the medium oval punch. It's also layered on a scallop oval of Soft Sky. I used slightly thicker dimensionals to mount the sentiment to the card.
Finally, I added two small sections of rhinestone swirls to the upper right and bottom left corners and coated the flower pot hearts and the sentiment heart with Diamond Glaze.
Thanks so much for stopping in! Have a wonderful day!
