Be Mine

Today I was inspired by this lovely pink glass tile bracelet to create this pretty little pink Valentine.

Our inspiration on Split Coast for this challenge was the Design Spirit Studio web site.

I embossed the heart with black EP and adhered it to a scalloped nestability. Then I layered some flowers and held them together with a Basic Grey glazed brad. I scored the edges to look like the beveled edges on the glass tile.

My heart is from the Seasons of Love set by Waltzingmouse, the sentiment is from a new Valentine set that will be available on January 4th.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Seasons of Love, sentiment from Valentine set to be released 1/4/10
Paper: white - PTI, Pink Pirouette - SU
Ink: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Heart Nestabilities, black EP, hot gun, basic grey glazed brad, flowers - Taylored Expressions & Michaels, scor pal, foam dimensionals, glue dots

I made this CAS card for the Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS - to make a quick card using a new supply and celebrating a yearly event.

I bought myself this new Flourished Frame Cuttlebug folder just before Christmas and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to open it up!

My stamp set is also new - a sneak peek at the Valentine/Anniversary set being released on Jan 4th from Waltzingmouse Stamps (yes - the very same set that the sentiment on the pink Valentine above is from!!)

And the yearly event is an anniversary (my sentiment inside says Happy Anniversary) I created this card in under 15 minutes - just embossed, stamped inside the frame added a little bling and corner punched the corners!

You can find more great sneak peeks at the blogs of these other DT members - Anya, Belinda, Bonnie, Jennifer, and Laurie

I'm also very excited to welcome Lynn Mercurio to our team as announced by our Claire over the weekend!

Thanks for coming by today!
