CARD: Heartfelt

Are you ready for Valentine's Day?  I think this year, it is more important than ever to send some love to all!  It doesn't have to be your significant other--what about a friend, or a coworker, or a neighbor?  Or maybe you know someone who is struggling with isolation?  Imagine how a handmade card might brighten their day!!

Here's a fun card--make several and get them sent!


I used the new True Love Designer Series Paper, and colored with Real Red ink--brushed on with our new Blending Brushes!!  The rest is just stamping and punching!  Fun & easy!

I'm entering this in the challenge at The Spot:

Have a great day!!!

TIPS: The Gilded Leafing is packed tightly in the container and is super light so it can "float" around easily. Open the container carefully and consider storing the leafing in a larger storage container with a lid. This makes the leafing easier to use and also easier to return excess leafing once done.

CARD: Soar Confidently, Embossed!

Good morning!!  One of my favorite sets from the Jan-June Catalog is the "Soar Confidently" -- it's a great masculine set, and you can never have too many of those!  This image is a dirigible, and I love the detail!


I embossed the image with White embossing powder, onto Night of Navy Cardstock.  The designer paper is called "Well Suited" -- lots of great masculine colors and patterns!
