Single Layer Valentine!

Surprise - this is the second post for the day!  I wanted to get another idea out for you!

This was another very quick card, yet I have to say it looks very pretty in real life since it sparkles  oh so much. 

Again, I used one of the latest dies from Impression Obsession and added several flowers to the flourishes, stamped the saying and added stickles to the center of the heart and along the flourishes.  The stickles really makes it pop and you forget that it is all on one layer.  Quick and easy and you get your card done in a reasonable amount of time (the little flowers slow you up a bit!)

Dies:  Impression Obsession heart flourish,  Impression Obsession hydrangea die set (for the little flowers)
Stamp:  Hero Arts
Other:  Stickles (diamond), Viva Decor pearl pen

Clean and Simple Valentine!

Good Friday Morning!
I want to share a clean and simple Valentine with you today.

I used two of the latest dies from Impression Obsession --- the "Love" script border and the mini hearts border.  Save the mini hearts that fall out from the border die and add it to this card as well as other creations!  I added the Cheery Lynn heart and leaves and the card was done!  Quick and easy but very pretty and modern looking - perfect for your special someone.

Supplies used:
Dies:  Impression Obsession "Love" border, Impression Obsession mini hearts border. Cheery Lynn heart,   Cheery Lynn leaves

Thanks for stopping by,

Valentine Sundaes

Hello, hello hello!

Sorry that I have been under the radar.............I'm glad to be back and today I have a special card to share with you!

I have seen this ice cream sundae stamp used by the Impression Obsession design team and thought how cute; I need to try something with it and so I stamped it several times and took out my Copics and started coloring.  It took a few tries to come up with the right colors and then I cut two out and started to play with a layout.

The Cheery Lynn doily gives it an old fashioned look and the hearts of course make you think of Valentine's Day.  But if you don't want to use this for Valentine's Day, it would be perfect for a birthday; especially for kids and teenagers.  And what about for those of us who remember sitting in an ice cream parlor and sharing a sundae with that special someone!

Hope this inspires you to start thinking about V-Day!  It will be here before we know it!

Supplies used:
Stamps:  Impression Obsession and Just Rite
Dies:  Cheery Lynn doily, Nellie Snellen nesting hearts, Impression Obsession heart border (I used the tiny hearts that fell out from the heart border.  Will now have to think of another card to actually use the heart border)
Other:  Copics, stickles
