Hearts & Banner

Good morning everyone!  It's time to start getting ready for Valentine's day!  I had a lot of fun making this card with so many of the beautiful papers from the Paper Temptress store.


 For the top portion of the background I used a small portion of "Pink Vintage Patchwork" which is a 6x6 overlay from the package Hambly Overlays #3.   The white background and heart are made from Laser Silver Luster which is one of my favorites!  I used several of the Mica/Metallic paper.  The pink heart is Azalea, the blue heart is Vista.  I used Alpine Aster  and Spring Larch from the Glimmer Cardstock Package 1.  The two parts of the banner that I stamped was stamped onto Heavenly White cardstock.   I don't know if you can tell that the pink heart is popped up a bit from the background and the white heart is popped up on top of the other hearts.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend whether you are dealing with snow, sleet, rain or maybe even sunshine!  Take the time to tell someone that you love them today!  Thank you for stopping by! 

Dies and stamps are from Stampin Up and Lifestyle Crafts - QuicKuts.

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!  We got a huge surprise!  It snowed at my house New Year's Eve and it only snows here in Southern Arizona once every few years so it was a real treat!  My project today was inspired that that snowstorm which dropped quite a bit of snow throughout the SouthWest and freshened up my little corner of it.


I used Vista cardstock for the card base.  I love the beautiful blue and the smooth texture of the mica/metallic paper.


I used Mirrored Reflective Cardstock for the snowflake and the word "snow".


I used Stampin' Up's Snowflake Card Thinlits Die and the coordinating Letterpress Winter.  I really like how the card folds and unfolds to reveal the front and back of the snowflake.


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying 2015 so far!
