Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect Challenge

Hey friends! For all my lovely friends in the states being hit with this terrible winter – stay warm! Being an Ohio native, I know how brutal it can be! We have had an usually mild winter here in Zurich so far – I am nervously awaiting a late onslaught – dread thinking of snow in April!

Anywho, onto today’s card! I’m here sharing a card for the new Paper Smooches Sparks challenge – this week is Picture Perfect.

I decided to go with the geometric heart & the colors for the inspiration, but went with a more watercolor effect to soften up the image. Actually, the Hip to be Square ended up stamping a little uneven on the watercolor paper, but I was ok with it – thought it added to the washed out look.

Unfortunately, the picture doesn’t do the card much justice – in real life the light pink is much more vibrant.  For the card I used Hip to be Square and Pretty Phrases

Thanks so much for stopping by today – have a great weekend and make sure to check out all the amazing DT creations & play along!

Valentine’s Day is a-coming!

Wow – I can’t believe it is nearly Valentine’s Day – which means it also nearly my little guy’s 2nd birthday – crazy! Time really does fly. Wish I could slow it all down sometimes…

Right, back to today’s card – a masculine card for Valentine’s Day – I think this one will be for the hubby. I used the sketch from Fusion for this card. And I am so happy that I finally inked up this adorable background stamp from Simon Says Stamp. Can I also say, I’m really pleased about the come back of velum – I hope it is here to stay for awhile – I could sew it on everything!

Ok, thats all for now – have a great day!

Embossed Hearts

Hey everyone! I’m having a super busy week, so going to keep this short & sweet. It has started to dawn on me that my due date is fast approaching and there is lots to be done around the house (less than 3 weeks now!). I’ve been really enjoying the Clean & Simple Card Making Class but finding less & less time to make projects :-( 

But, I did manage this quick card – I used a sketch from Day 1 and tone-on-tone embossing that I think was covered in Day 3 or 4. I also wanted to use a very white canvas, which was discussed yesterday – so lots of elements combined into one! This is also for the Moxie Fab Embossing & Debossing challenge and the Passion for Papertrey Valentine’s Day challenge – I used all PTI cardstock, ink & die cuts!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your week!
