A day late, but I wanted to share with you the Valentine I made for Lee.
It isn't overly masculine, but the sentiment still works. ;)
I masked off an area where I wanted my sentiment, with a piece of paper, then used a hearts stencil/mask to sponge two shades of grey ink over top, allowing the lighter shade to fade out towards the edges.
The sentiment I used is from the What Matters Most stamp set and I stamped it in black ink.
And lastly, I cut a small heart with our smallest Hearts Thin Cuts die out of Bashful Glitter paper and then sponged Pomegranate ink onto it to give it an ombre effect and popped it up with 3D foam tape.
And the last step I did was to add some shimmer to the flowers with my Clear Shimmer Brush.
Did you know that these Shimmer Brushes come in Gold and Bashful pink, too? AND that you can easily create your own colour by adding a drop or two of re-inker to a Clear Shimmer Brush?
I always have Sparkles in my stash. Did you know that you can easily colour them with ShinHan markers to create different colours to match with your projects??? Definitely a must-have in your stash, too!
I was inspired by the Close To My Heart special this month called Pretty In Pink.
You can get certain pink themed items at a 30% discount, plus they even created a butterfly mobile craft project that you can order. How fun is that?
I sponged Bashful, Blossom, and Raspberry onto a piece of White Daisy cardstock to create the colourful background. Then I used the retired Charming Cascades to white emboss the falling hearts over top.
The heart was cut with the smallest Hearts Thin Cuts die shape from Bashful Glitter paper, and then I sponged Raspberry ink on the lower half of the heart to give it a ombre effect.
The sentiment is from the Sunny Thoughts - February SOTM stamp set. Certainly a fave of mine right now!
And the other images are from the February SOTM set, Sunny Thoughts. (You can get Sunny Thoughts during February for just $6 with a minimum $50 order, or order it without a minimum order for $23.)
The paper I used is from the Gimme Some Sugar paper packet. Gimme Some Sugar is baking themed, but it works so lovely with this card.
There are actually only a couple of prints in the package with baking images, and it is double sided paper with a completely different pattern on the opposite side. So it could be used to make a wonderful recipe album, beautiful baking/cooking layouts, and so much more! I especially love the woodgrain paper in this pack!
