Valentine Puppy

Hi All!

I love my new Party Dog stamp (four in the set) from Lost Coast Designs!  Pinks from Pretty-in-Pink and purple from Luscious  Lilacs Core'dination cardstock and a Cuttlebug embossing folder were used to showcase the cute little guy!

I sanded the Core'dinations cardstock I dry embossed to bring out the candy hearts.  I distressed the light pink cardstock enough to show the color's subtle difference, which I love, but the photo didn't do it justice.  A purple jewel and three cut out candy hearts were used to embellish my card. 

 I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Core'dinations-While the Cat's Away the Mice Will Play!  1/24
Crafty Girls Challenge #9-Anything Goes! 1/22
Aloha Friday Challenges #15-Something New  New puppy stamp/new candy hearts folder 1/31

Drunken Stampers Challenge Thing: New Year's Day

 Hello All and Happy New Year!

This week Drunken Stampers challenge features a thing: New Years Day!  (Drinks or resolutions or whatever inspires you about the new year)

One of my resolutions is to takes some risks so I am able to discover more of who I am.  The Tim Holtz stamp in the Urban Tapestry set is a perfect mantra for me to repeat so I continue to focus on my resolution through out the year.

I stamped the verse and the Tim Holtz Framelits Retro Christmas star using Versamark and Zing! Aqua Opaque Finish Embossing powder on Club Scrap Silver paper.  The stars were then die cut.  I used the sunburst folder out of the three pack of Playing Games Texture Fades set using Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock.

Celebrate with us by making a card/project for the Drunken Stampers challenge: New Years Day!  (Drinks or resolutions or whatever inspires you about the new year)! You could be our next Life of the Party!  Projects need to be uploaded by 11:59 pm PST on Friday January 10th for this challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
