just for you

Good day to you, we here in Ohio have had more snow fall upon us.  I'm not complaining since we haven't had a terribly hard winter thus far.
If you haven't joined in all all the great stamps and accessories from the Sale-a-bration catalog that Stampin' Up has you should.  This is actually from 2 different set.  The word are from one and the rest is from another.  I made the background then added some fussy cut flowers popped.  For some reason I'm an orange tone flower person.  Sale-a-bration is still going strong, if you need anything you can contact me here or at vmilyard@gmail.com.  Have a great day.

TSOT challenge #257

Time for another challenge over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  The sketch for this two weeks is a good one and I hope you will try your hand and inks on it.  I took a little freedom with the image, turned it, made the circles larger and put the sentiment on the right hand circle. (when I looked at the sketch I had missed the sentiment placing!)  This is made with all Stampin' Up products -
SAB stamp set, What I Love
Inks/ card stock:  Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Whisper White
Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon -Occasions Catalog,
 Spring Flowers Embossing Folder - regular catalog

Creative Card Crew challenge - Love

When you think of February what is your first thought?  Valentines Day/ Love?  Well that is our theme this next two weeks, Love.  Show us what you can do with this theme.  It might be something for Valentines Day, or an Anniversary for a special couple, or just a love card that you are sending to a friend who needs cheered up.  Our sponsor is Digital Delights.

     I will probably add a sentiment on the heart that this adorable bunny is holding when I decided what to do with this card.  It may be a birthday card as I have two sisters-in-laws that have birthdays on the 13th and 14th.
The image was printed on a piece of pink and I used my copics to color,  Printed a second image so I could pop the small heart, rose and paws holding the pink heart which has glitter on it but was not picked up in the photo.  I die cut the image with a square heart die that I had and I made it longer by cutting one half of it then moving the die up sand lining up one of the hearts to lengthen.  I also special cut the ear section and placed them over the die so the heart edge would not cut the ears.  This was placed on a piece of white so the hearts edge would show, layered on a piece of rich razzleberry then finished with the same pink that I embossed with a heart folder.  Thanks for stopping by, if you have any questions on how this card was made just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.  Have a wonderful day.

Peaceful Morning

Second card with this lovely set, In the Meadow from the Occasions catalog from Stampin' Up.  If you missed the first card it was in the previous post.  Have a wonderful peaceful day.

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
