The first card was a quick fix - I'm just going to make 2 samples using 2 different sets. I'll post the pics of these tomorrow sometime. My second card is a Valentine's day card. Here's what I had planned on doing.
However lovely this set is, it's not a card to do with such a large group of ladies. I did it with my stamper's club last month and even with only 5 of them it took a long time.
While drinking my morning coffee and surfing, I found a perfect Valentine's Day challenge. Pals Paper Arts this week is a colour challenge using any three reds. I always like to showcase punches in my workshops and I have a TON of red & pink paper lying around so I came up with this little baby. Not only it is a great way to use up little scraps that I've been hoarding, but you get the chance to play with the small heart stamp and the amazing new Framelits collection. I love the combo of Riding Hood Red, Real Red, and the Red Glimmer paper.
It still needed a little something extra so I ran the matting piece through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF. After that I took a pearl acrylic paint dauber and ran it over the cardstock to give it a nice shimmer. I'm pretty please with the outcome. Now I just need to get started cutting the paper for it!
