Shimmery Anniversary

Happy Saturday everyone!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.  I am back today to share an anniversary card.  There's lots of hearts and shimmer on it.


Subtle hearts in the background, floral heart die, ribbons with hearts, and heart shape flower centers.  See what I mean?  :)  I painted the floral heart die cut, the flowers and two leaves with Twinkling H2O,  and I used Wink of Stella on the third leaf.  Also the ribbon has a bit of glitter on it too, so the whole card is quite shimmery.  Here's a close up:

Pink Congrats

Hello,

Cindy here to share a Wedding card.  This month's challenge theme is Love, Marriage, & Anniversaries.  

Hero Arts is our sponsor! 



I chose a floral heart shape stamp and overlapping it in a circular fashion trying to create a soft lace look.


I die cut twice the "congrats", once on hot pink card stock, another on dark chocolate.  And I adhere it slightly offset so it gives a shadow and dimension.  Here's a closer look:




Supplies:

Ranger Distress Ink (Spuned Sugar)
VersaColor (Raspberry)
Memento Dye Ink (Tuxedo Black)
Clear embossing powder

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

You Make My Heart FLutter

Hero Arts is Our February Sponsor.

I love matching die and stamp sets.  That gives you so many options.  When I think of February's challenge at Die Cut Divas, I think pink, whirling butterflies, and that fluttering feeling in the tummy.  My sentiment continues from the outside to the inside.  "YOU MAKE my heart flutter" is the sentiment, but I divided it to fit part on the outside and part inside.  Take a look at the outside.  And yes, the black and white is from a up-cycled tissue box.

I think this card has a feminine, but modern feel to it.  Someone gave me a tissue box that reminds me of a zebra and I couldn't resist using it.
