More happy hearts day cards!

More valentines with The Project Bin sentiments!

I used the little envelope from The North Pole set to create my background on white card stock, colored background pink and then added a layer of vellum over top since the color was a much hotter pink than I had wanted. Love the softness it adds. The sentiment is from the Really Hungry set.

The second card also uses the Really Hungry set. Love the 'smore from this versatile set!
Paper is retired SU.


Simon Says Stamp Be My Valentine set embossed in white and shaded with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, and Shabby Shutters. Love die cut on top of a strip of vellum is by Lawn Fawn.

December 26

This is Santa on the beach, the day after Christmas with a sack full of cookies.
The background was easily done with three colors of acrylic paint swiped across the white card stock. Stamped, colored, cut out Santa (Art Impressions- Tropical Christmas) and popped him up on foam tape. Added sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink which is my favorite for sentiments. It stamps darker and more clearly than any of the other inks I have but does not do well with Copic markers. It smears.

Winter Village

Creating a scene was fun and easy to do with the Lawn Fawn Winter Village set and coordinating dies, along with the stitched mountain hillside in the background. I added the silver glitter strip at the bottom for the road, added a white embossed sentiment in Stampin' Up!'s retired Buckeroo Blue. I love this color and am glad that I stockpiled some extra, it's a lovely gray blue.
It feels good to be working on my 2020 Christmas cards this early, I am going to be SO ready for the holidays this coming year.

I used one of the sample cards as inspiration, changing it up just a little. Card stock colors of red, gold, and white, sequins, white and gold embossing powders, and foam tape to pop up greeting and bird.
