Four Stash Embellished Valentine Cards

Good morning friends

Today I have four cards to share made using bits from my stash. The layered chipboard embellishments had been sitting in my bin and it was time to get them onto cards. I decided to use them for simple Valentine's.

I used a Sakura Stardust pen to outline the hearts printed on the jar.

The card insides are pretty much identical, with strips of patterned paper that coordinates with each card front, a stamped and water coloured heart and a popped up stamped/die cut sentiment label.

The next two cards also use chipboard embellishments, but also a doily or a 'swirly scribble' die cut.

Below you can see where I added the sparkle pen to the open hearts printed on the jar.

Back in the Fall, I finally ordered the Stampin' Up Swirly Scribbles dies. I love them! They are so fun  to add just a little something to your cards. Here I used the largest one and cut it in half so it would show on either side of the chipboard block.

The inside of the heart was outlined with the same sparkly pen, and the 'HUGS' was written with a black glaze pen for added dimension and shine.

Yesterday's CHA show was fabulous - my head is reeling from all the eye candy and lovely people I got to meet. Some fun new products coming out that I can't wait to hit the shelves and of course it was a highlight to meet Karen Burniston face to face. To be able to attend a show like that with Karen B, and Kelly - and Sandy Diller as well - was just SO much fun. I loved every minute of it.
