I Love Valentine's Day

Can I tell you how much I LOVE Valentine's Day?? I truly do, and now that I am speaking about it, I think MAYBE I need to get my cards ready to send...in all honesty, I don't even know how many I have made, YIKES!! Better add that to the To Do list, LOL! I am not one of those girls that wants flowers though(at least I don't in theory)...don't get me wrong, I love them and they are gorgeous, but seriously?? Give me the $75, I can put it to MUCH better use, LOL!! For today's post, I am going to show you a couple more of the Taylored Expression Sketch cards that I made. The first one was made using my girl Jackie's sketch. I started with the new Flirty Fortunes set and stamped it on Gina K. White. I left the box white, cause lets face it, most of them are, and then added a shadow with my Copic Cool Grey No.3 marker. I decided to make it a box full of love, so I stamped some of the hearts from the Sealed With A Kiss set(also from Paper Pretties) colored them with my copics, and glued them on. The image and it's layers were cut out using my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. I then paired it with some Washington Apple DSP from SU. The sentiment was cut out and added on top of a Heidi Swapp ghost heart. For this card, I used Riding Hood Red, and So Saffron plus Gina K. white. I ran the white layer through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. The two different DP's are connected using some So Saffron Poly Twill ribbon and then a piece of Riding Hood Red striped ribbon. Of course I HAD to do some piercing, and add some brads, and it was done!!
For this next card, I used the Sealed With a Kiss set again. I stamped Luke and Lexi on Gina K. White and colored them in using my Copics. I then layered them with Pink Pirouette, So Saffron and Bravo Burgundy...yes, I know I am over using this and TOTALLY eating my words about the whole Blavo Burgundy thing, but I AM a girl and TOTALLY entitled to change my mind, hehe!! I used some Parisian Summer DSP, the white layer was run through my Cuttlebug with the Textiles folder. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with my Su Oval punches. I added some pearl stickers to the scallops and to the top, some piercing, YUMMY May Arts and SU ribbon and it was done. That is it for me now..gotta run!! Thanks for stopping by!!
