My Valentine


Stamps: So Much Love (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Pretty In Pink, Bashful Blue, and Very Vanilla textured card stocks, Bashful Blue Prints (SU)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink, Black Gel pen, Basic Black Stampin' Write marker
Accessories: Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilites, Scalloped Edge punch (SU), Ellison Daisy Die, Heart Blocks Cuttlebug folder, Bashful Blue & Pretty In Pink Taffeta ribbon, Quickie Glue Pen & Dazzling Diamonds, Making Memories Brad, Scotch Foam tape, Glue Dots


It's time for another Dirty Dozen/Alumini challenge, and it's a fun one! We were to create a Valentine with some kind of texture, but not include the color red. I knew I wanted to use my new So Much Love set from Lizzie Anne Designs. Aren't these little birds the sweetest? I stamped them on the Bashful Blue, trimmed them, and adhered them to the stamped Very Vanilla circle. Quickie Glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds were used for the sparkly hearts. The embossed heart background was created using my Heart Blocks Cuttlebug folder, and the flower with my Daisy Die. I think everything is pretty straight-forward, but if you have questions...just let me know.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
