A pair of love-ly cards!

Hi, everybody! Suzanne here, and I was inspired by the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday on Sunday to make these two love-themed cards!

My first card features a scene that I put together with Lawn Fawn's retired "Good Fortune" stamp set. I used paper from the "Let's Polka in the Dark" petite paper pad to make a simple background for my card front.

My second card features a 3-D accent that I made with the "Sweet Smiles" stamp set. I used permanent solvent ink to stamp on a transparent sheet and layered some mini hearts that I punched from a few scraps of Lawn Fawn paper

I used foam tape between the layers to give the bubble gum machine some dimension. It's not a shaker element because all of the hearts are adhered to either the transparent sheet or the bottom layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We'll have a new challenge on Monday, so make sure you join us!

You Brighten My Life

Good morning!  Jess here today with a lot of sparkles!  I just received a new wink of stella clear glitter brush marker in the mail and I was excited to use it!  I used my last one until it literally had no glitter left and I had forgotten just how sparkly a new marker would be!
I started off by die-cutting the Puffy Cloud Borders using white cardstock, silver glitter cardstock, and vellum.  I also used the Rainbow die to die-cut colored cardstock and then heavily applied clear wink of stella glitter all over the rainbow.  It's so sparkly it practically blinds you when it catches the light!

I stamped the sentiment from Life is Good onto one of the cloud layers and embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I adhered the starry patterned paper from the Pint-Sized Patterns: Beachside collection to an A2 card base and then arranged the clouds and rainbow over the background.  I used foam mounting tape for some of the pieces to give the scene a little dimension.  Finally I adhered a stitched frame around the edge of the card to cover up some of the uneven edges!

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is Sending Love, using hearts or love sentiments on your projects, and I created this card with the challenge in mind!  I hope this inspires you to play along with the challenge!  Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous Monday!
