February 14th - Keeping it Clean!
Soon the day full of love, kisses, chocolate and romance will be here (and it will be my first one as a married lady)! I dug out all of my Valentine's Day supplies, followed along with two challenges, and this is what I came up with. I used Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock in Lipstick Red and White to create all of the multiple layers. The stamps are from the Stampin' Up! set A Happy Heart. The hearts were cut out and embossed using Nestabilities Scalloped Hearts dies, and the sentiment was cut out with my Stampin' Up Word Window punch. I used dimensionals to make the layers pop. My embellishments are some wide grosgrain ribbon and a few pieces of red and white baker's twine.
The first challenge I followed is this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens - JG512. This week, you have to use some kind of hearts, use any kind of embellishments, use pink or red with white, and do some kind of embossing. So much fun! Thanks Joan!
I also played along with Freshly Made Sketches # 16 sketch challenge. This was a tough challenge for me. Not only do you follow along with the sketch, but you have to keep your card "clean" - no distressing, sponging or ripping and tearing allowed.
Both blogs are just full of inspiration and endless fabulous creations! Be sure to check them both out!
I hope everyone had a good week! TGIF!
