Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #144

It has been a long time since I played along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I am a past design team member and I thoroughly enjoyed designing cards using their sketches.  Some of the sketches had me thinking outside the box and challenged my creativity.  This weeks' sketch was a bit challenging at first until I started looking at my heart dies, punches, embellishments, papers and embossing folders.  With Valentines Day coming up soon; I decided to make a Valentine card.  This card will probably be given to my husband of 43 1/2 years (Wow, has it really been that long?).  Once I decided which papers etc. to use, the card came together fairly quickly.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

White card stock base, SU's Cherry Cobbler was used for the love sentiment from The Stamps of Life; heart banner die which is by Memory Box  and the scalloped heart punch which is from Fiskars.  I also added a small maroon colour button as well as a white heart and 2 tiny clear rhinestones.  All in all, I am very pleased at how this card turned out and at how quickly I was able to put it all together.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge

It has been a very long time since I posted on this blog!  A lot has happened but I will save that for another post soon.

When I saw the Merry Monday Challenge to make a card featuring White on White, I wanted to play along.

Without further ado; here is my card:

The die cut is by Poppy Stamps - Snowflake ribbon die.  The die was cut using my cuttlebug and some adhesive backed glitter paper.  I also added some white snowflakes from my stash and added some tiny rhinestone bling to them as well.  I couldn't resist adding the star.  The sentiment is from my stash and was  stamped with olive green ink onto a scallop circle.  As I didn't get the sentiment lined up properly, I added some tiny rhinestone bling underneath to balance it out.  The bling I used is from Couture Creations which I bought at my favourite store - One Crazy Stamper in Bolton ON.

I really like this card and am very happy with how it turned out.
