I used some card stock that I found hiding in a closet. It is the color of True Thyme ink, form SU!. I created a panel with a Sizzix embossing folder. My sentiment is digital from Gingerhouse, cut out with Spellbinders, Labels Ten, and sponged with Old Olive. I thought these apples were so cute, as they were part of a digi subway art that I cut up. The heart has diamond Stickles, and then is coated in Crystal Effects, to make it safe for our Heros I added some bronze mini brads as embellishments.
My next card is from the same color palette and uses scraps of this and that. It has a white base, layered with the True Thyme, and o piece of SU designer paper. (unknown) My "I love you" sentiment is on a Modern Label punch and the stamp is from Love You To Bits. I punched some hearts from scraps as well as my owls. There are Crystal Effects on the green heart and the owl eyes.
Card three was really fun! I found this digi I had printed out ages ago for a bookmark. I shortened the panel, and did some piercing, sponging with True Thyme ink. I embossed and sanded a panel to gets some more texture in. My designer paper is Wild Asparagus. I punched a couple of contrasting hearts and coated them with Crystal Effects. They are popped with mounting foam. A sentiment banner was made
using my favorite Valentine stamp from Craft Smart.
Well that is it for right now. I started making cards for the troops too late to get a good jump on Fall and Christmas, so I am trying to make as many Valentines as I can. I just have to keep reminding myself to keep the layers to a minimum. Have a great evening!
