I'm Back

I know, it's been months since I posted, but I hope to change that. I plan to post cards with recipes and an occasional tutorial. I started a new job is August & have been on the fast track ever since. It's been a bit of an adjustment for me, but I am finally ready to blog again. I only find time to stamp on my work weekends, Sunday & Monday so don't expect too much from me. Here is one of my Valentines day cards. I plan to make at least one other design & maybe even two, but here are my first cards.

The House Mouse image was stamper with Versafine Onyx Blace ink & then colored with Copic Markers. The circles are the Nestabilities, Small Circles and Large Petite Scalloped Circles (confusing huh? The Large refers to the set of circles and petite is referring to the size of the scallop.) The pink paper was embossed with the Argyle Cuttlebug Folder. I used the large scaloped rectangles under that. I punched the corners of the brown layer with the ticket punch from Stampin Up. Those are dew drops in the corners. I use pearl dew drops and put a drop of Tim Holtz alcohol ink on each dew drop to make a custom color. I edged my layers with a Silver Pilot Paint Pen. The white dots on the scallops are a Signo pen. Many of the layers were accented in brown with the Chocolate brown Brilliance Inkpad.

Now, for another variation. I used many of the same elements. I changed up the colors and a few elements to make a card for the Club Posh Challenge. It's a great challenge to make a valentines card with a heart on it, but you can't use any shade of red! So I did up this card. I added in the Posh Impressions background.

Hope you enjoyed the two variations of this Valentine's Day card. I'll post again soon. JIL
