You & Me

Hi everyone! Happy February! I'm still shaking my head wondering where the month of January went! We've had a very pleasant winter so far here, so I'm a happy camper! A few weeks back my cute little snowmen card won the Christmas challenge over at Crafty Boots and I was asked to be a February guestie. I'm very happy to share my inspirational project for the Love Is In The Air challenge this month. I used some new crafty goodies for this card - coordinating Stampin' Up! papers and a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm really loving my stitched heart dies and have used them quite a bit lately. I also pulled out an old favorite Cheery Lynn doily die. Loving the pinks and corals together. :)

I jazzed up the inside a bit with some leftover scraps of the paper used on the front, and stamped the inside sentiments (also from the Simon Says Stamp set) on a stitched die cut. The front and inside panels are layered on black Cast-Kote cardstock which is glossy and really pretty. ;)

Happy to enter this valentine into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Pretty Petals DSP (#138442), Cricut Reds & Pinks cardstock, Marco's Black Cast-Kote Gloss cardstock
  • Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Labeled With Love
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Stampin' Up! Calypso Coral ink (#126983)
  • Dies/Punches: MB Stitched Heart Layers dies, MFT Die-namics Stitched Square STAX dies, Cheery Lynn Italian Flourish die
  • Accessories: 3GJ Coral Crush ribbon, MISTI, Darice foam, white flat-back pearls

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found some inspiration to create a project for our Love challenge this month! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
