Happy Valentines All!

I am still loving the Everyday Enchanted paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog ... the color palette is so versatile and well just YUMMY!

Have used it here to make this clean and simple Valentine Card using our new Heart Framelits, the Scalloped Heart embosslit and the Take it to Heart stamp set from the Occasions mini!

Added a little bit of paper piercing around the end for texture and quick easy 5-10 minute card depending on how quick you pierce :)

Royal Love

Over at Stampin' Royalty blog they offered up the following inspirational photo this week ... love the shades of pink and the little heart throw pillow which I thought were perfect for this submission inspired by my upline from a recent class!

Petal Cone heart embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper and embellished with the Fun Flowers die embossed with the Square Lattice ... offers lots of texture and packs a lot of love - I am going to hide my mans Valentine in this little envelope card and tuck it in his lunch box on Tuesday!
If you are looking for inspiration hop on over to the Stampin' Royalty blog and check out what others were inspired to make with this fresh photo!

Kissed by Nature

Here is another 'Kissing' card from tonight's Technique Tuesday class ... we used the Inspired by Nature stamp set in Pink Pirouette which was kissed with the En Francis in Early Espresso and featuring a 'framed' Labels collection ... and a little Framed Tulips and the Tasteful Trim in Baja Breeze.

I used my Color Coach for the palette and the layout was inspired from over at 'Just Us Girls' which was a nice simple but elegant layout. 

If you have a moment hop on over and check them out ...

Superbowl 'Kissing' Distrations

I took advantage of the men being distracted by the big screen, cold beer and munchies today to spend much of the afternoon hiding in the 'women cave' aka my Crafting Corner ... who knew I would grow up craving to be sent to the corner for the afternoon???

So with my free time I spent this afternoon coming up with this wonderful offering of 'love' for my Technique Tuesday class this coming week .... with February being the Month of Love I thought we would revisit our KISSING techniques ;)
 The butterflies were 'kissed' in numerous ways from the stamped off kiss, uninked kiss and finally two toned kissing ... you cannot see it too well in the photo but the Upsy Daisy was kissed with some En Francis two toned kisses .... seriously who doesn't like some kissing such a cute and fun little technique?

My creation this week was inspired by the wonderful Sketch challenge over at 1{heart}2stamp .... hop on by and check out the wonderful inspirations from the Design Team and other bloggers!
 The color combo of Basic Black, Real Red, Regal Rose and Whisper White from over at ColourQ ... some wonderful inspirations go check them up too.
