Debbie Owens' card looks like a box full of chocolates! Her glittery coppery background die cut using the Frames & Flags die set showcases the newly released Heartfelt Love stamp set die cut using the scallop-edged die from the Heart Frames die set. She shades the little hearts in shades of browns and caramels. She adds a bit of Glossy Accents to add some shine to the chocolates. She adds a light tan crimped strip with a brown ribbon and bow. For her little sash across the heart, she combines sentiments from the Heartfelt Love and the Love & Chocolate stamp sets. Delicious!
Diane Morales designs a fun Valentine's card showcasing the octopus from the Tides of Love stamp and coordinating die set. She creates a watery backdrop using the Bubbly stencil. She die cuts this in a heart shape. She adds the sentiment embossed in white on a black card stock strip and a trio of pink hearts. All of this sits atop a fun white paper with vertical black stripes Punny and playful!
Sue T.'s sweet card combines love with some wintry fun! She places a white heart-shaped doily atop a kraft card stock and adds a snowflake paper for her strip. She adds the cute snow couple from the Frozen Friends stamp set. She colors the scarves in pretty red and adds red & white twine for her final touch. A lovely way to tell someone you love them!
Amy T. shows us the power of caffeine and cats with her cute, colorful card! She stamps and colors all the kittens and cup from the Caffeinated Cats stamp set and die cuts it all using the Framework die set. She adds a light tan stripe with the sentiment from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. Her red, glittery heart is die cut using the Darling Hearts die set. A jute bow is a wonderful finishing touch!
Claire Lamb opts for puppies for her card. She uses two of the puppies from the Delightful Doxies stamp and coordinating die set and places them on a background with puffy pink clouds created using the Clouds stencil. She creates layers of hearts include a large clear one that allows a glimpse of the inside of the card. A marvelous way to utilize dies and add a creative feature! Wonderfully done Ms. Claire!
