Will You Be My Valentine?

How is it the end of January?

I am blaming Thanksgiving being late, which cause the holidays to blur, add in a lot of travel days, and finding yourself a few weeks from Valentine's Day.  So I guess that means I need to start making a few lovey dovie cards.  

The colors of the Meology line from Fancy Pants Designs are so soft, and the palette is really perfect for making romantic cards with.  I stamped directly onto some pattern paper, it wasn't too busy where I would be worried about the pattern over powering the stamped sentiment.  
To add more color I stamped the heart in a soft pink color, and distressed the edges with green ink.

I am really loving the mini distress ink pads from Ranger (Tim Holtz line) and the round mini sponge blenders. love them.

I popped a few of the banner stickers up using 3d Foam Squares, to help give the card a little bit of dimension.  A lot of times if you look at a card and it looks wrong, it could be that its too flat, my solution is to always pop up a layer or embellishment.  

To finish I added some satin ribbon and a button.
ready to give away
Most likely I will give it to one of my daughters friends to giveaway to their "boo"

You and Me

For whatever reason most of my blog posts never showed up this month.  But in all fairness to blogger, I "might" have accidentally been using the wrong year to pre-post...oops lol.

So Fancy Pants Designs has a new line out called Flutter.  The first thing I immediately noticed about this line was the texture of the paper, it has a little bit of tooth to it.  I might be a little bit heavier than smooth pattern paper.  But the Flutter paper just feels luxurious.  

The colors and patterns are really bold, with hues of teal, light and dark pink, black, cream among others (those are the ones sticking out in my mind right now).

For this card all I needed to do was cut or adhere most of the items except for the circle die cut.  Right now I making a lot of cards for next years holidays, so that the guys/girls have cards to send home, when my husband deploys. This cards isn't to bulky so it will be perfect to set aside.  I usually send 1000+ cards, so I will need to make more "love" type of cards for sure!
