Loads of Love

So Valentine's Day is over but we can always make cards for our loved ones! Who needs a specific holiday to inspire us, right?! I love the colors in this card and was pleased with the way it came out. This stamp set is one of the oldest ones in the Stampin' Up! catalog. I am not sure if its one of the original ones or not but I would bet on it. Its great for coloring with either markers or aqua painters, etc. I used markers this time because I wanted the color to be vibrant. I don't use this set enough but will have to remember to - it has a lot of cute stamps for the bed of the truck. Maybe you'll be seeing some more creations soon from me using it! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Loads of Love
Paper: Baja Breeze, Real Red, Regal Rose & Whisper White
Ink: Black, Baja Breeze (sponged around punched sentiment) & markers
Other: Circle punches, Dotted Scallop Border Punch & Small Heart Punch

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love this card and wish the photo captured it better. For some reason its kind of dark in the picture. I was never into vintage anything but it is so huge now and its beginning to grow on me. I bought the crochet ribbon to try it out and ended up loving it and used it all up! I have to reorder more! Enjoy your day & thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Valentine

With Valentine's Day fast approaching I thought I'd show some cards that I've made recently before its too late. Today's card is one that I cased but don't remember where from. (sorry!) I love punches and use them in almost all of my cards & pages. The owl punch is definitely a fun one. I am thinking I will give this card to my husband, as he is certainly my sweet valentine.
