Stamp Off Blooming Heart Valentine

Welcome to our first February Stamp Off Challenge.
Buffy, Susan and I are "Loving it"!

Hopefully you are ready for Valentine's Day, 
with a lovely (hand made) card for your sweetie.

For my project, I picked up my neglected Bloomin' Heart
Thinlits die (Annual p 215) and a piece of Dazzling
Diamonds Glimmer Paper (p 194). 

The Glimmer paper
heart is so pretty, that I added a couple of layers under
the sentiment, to make it stand out.
And OF COURSE, I included layers of the
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack,
to make it feel like the heart was attached to a tree.

It was lovely having you, and I know that you will
enjoy the love that Susan and Buffy will share with you!

Butterfly Basics with Stampin' Blends

This is a quick project, using the Butterfly Basics set
on page 149.  I colored it with the Stampin' Blends,
which make this kind of project easy to complete!
The Color Theory DSP pack always comes in
handy, when you want to perk up a card.

Bubble Over on Wood Textures

I tend to abstain, but for this post, I'm really into drinking.
The Bubble Over set, with Bottles & Bubbles Framelits
dies (Occasions p 32) is cute cute, CUTE. 
There are so many details included, yet they are not too
tiny for layering and building great cards.   I prefer bolder
images and dies because sometimes I'm all thumbs
when it comes to crafting.

I go back to the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper
Stack (Annual p 187) over and over.    It is so
effective because it sets off the images in a really
friendly visual way.
