“Love-ly” Valentine

Happy Saturday.  Even though it is somewhat gray and dreary here today, it is always so pleasant in the craft room!  I am participating in two challenges with this card today.  The Global Design Project’s Color Challenge and for the first time I am entering in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.

When designing for a color and sketch challenge, I find that most of the though process is already done.  The only thing you need to come up with is an actual design.

With Valentine’s Day the next big holiday, I thought these colors were the perfect opportunity to start my Valentine’s cards.  I started with my Whisper White card base and added a layer of Crumb Cake.  From there I matted a piece of DSP from the Love Blossoms DSP Stack in the Occasions Catalog.  This little 6 x 6 stack packs a BIG punch.  All of the designs are great.  I knew I would be using this collection a lot and have already ordered a second package and may not be done yet!  The little sentiment is from the Hello Life stamp set.

The heart is cut using the retired Hearts framelits and embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder for a little detail.  I stamped and cut the flowers using the Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating punch.  Before punching, I colored the flowers with Red Rose ink and a blender pen.  I also colored a few Garden Green and cut the petals apart for leaves.  The centers were colored with the Crushed Curry marker with some small pearls added.

I haven’t added a sentiment yet because I am waiting for my new order to come this week with the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope that you get to spend some time crafting this weekend.
