Love is in the air...

CFC87: Use markers in your Clean And Simple Creation
Remember... a little can go a loooong way!
You can color an image, or an element, or get creative and show us some fun techniques!

I used copic markers to color the savvystamps rose flourish and partially stamped flourishes on the hearts. I first stamped white card stock with memory box "Journey Collage script" stamp and then the rose stamp and punched with Fiskars heart punch to pop up. I sponged the edges with Memento London Fog for definition.

Roses are Red...

Roses are red and pink and violet and blue! Flowers are nice but chocolate is too! 

Have a heart - created something for family, friends and sweethearts
this Valentine's Day

Hello everyone! I am nearly finished my prototypes for a Valentine’s Craft Class, however I need to make cards and projects that are suitable to post! My challenge is to create cards that can be die cut in advanced and  easy to assemble and mailed, if necessary. With the cards that will be created the size is roughly 4.25” square. 

The flower is made with two different Sizzix Bigz dies and the sentiment is Hero Arts.
The button is made by slicing a wine cork and using a crop-o-dile to punch the holes.
The Spellbinders Scalloped and Classic Hearts are my favorite dies.

The top flower layer is die cut from an old school book.
My inspiration is by this card of Deb's

The flower here is a gift from a friend. There is also sewing machine stitching.
The look of this card can still be achieved without a sewing machine and with
a homemade paper flower instead.

Card ingredients: Spellbinders scalloped and classic hearts, Colorbok designer scrapbook paper,
 Martha Stewart border punch, white card stock and ribbon. The sentiment is a JustRite rubber stamp punched with a Stampin' Up
Modern Label punch.

Flowers and candy and hearts, oh my!

I used Sizzix Bigz Pro Die Box w/Heart Closure. Added a
Spellbinders Scalloped heart, Martha Stewart border punched ban
and Sizzix rolled roses for this special treat box for friends
loved ones and more!
