{Love Is In The Air}


Hello friends! Wow, this is a whopper of a post but I had a very productive (long naptime) afternoon so I have lots to show you! I created three cards, with three different die-cut heart shapes. These adorable cutting files came from Lori Whitlock. Oh boy if you have not been to her store and you own a die-cut machine then you have to see her awesome cutting files! (I am in no way affiliated with LW just a very happy customer.) I cut the hearts out and ran them through my Cuttlebug with a woodgrain embossing folder by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). I sponged the hearts in 3 different colors, red, pink, and white. I added a strip of patterned paper that I cut using the Argyle EK Success border  punch. Next I cut out strips of paper using the PTI Photo Finishers metal dies. I stamped the Valentine sentiment using the A Muse Studio "Essential Sentiments" collection. Now, that adorable flower was created using another cutting file this time from "Lettering Delights" and my KNK Zing. The collection is called "Quilled Flowers". Love, love LOVE that set!! I added a button to the center and glued the flower on top of a bow tied with basic twine. Here are the other two cards:


                                                                         I love the splashes of hot pink!           


On this heart I tried something different by heat embossing the entire heart using white embossing powder. I really like the way this one turned out!

Today I am playing along with a few challenges:
