Hearts Afire

Here is another version of my heart trio valentines. You get a different look every time depending on what type of DSP you use or what stamped heart combination you chose. Tomorrow I will share the card I used for my valentine swap, which by the way I just received back, and what cute cards I received! Swaps are such a great way to visualize other layouts and other styles.
It was a beautiful weekend here in central California, we had blue skies, sunshine and temps in the high 50's, so I spent a good deal of time working out in the yard. It felt great but I am tired in a good way. Until tomorrow......

Valentine Hearts Abound

I was hesitant about ordering Stampin'Up!'s new clear stamps, not because of the quality of their products but because I've got other clear stamps that just do not have the printing quality of the wood mount stamps that I desire. But knowing the quality of Stampin'Up! products I decided to try a set and I love them! Same great printing quality of wood mount with the convenience of the clear mounts and the ability to see placement. The clear set I ordered was the 'I (heart hearts)', which I used for this card layout along with the 'Love you much' set.
There are more stamps I would like to order from the new Occasions and I will be ordering the clear sets.....they are priced lower and they will take up less space and they print great!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner!

Valentine's Day will soon be here and I have several card designs I've been working on, plus I've been making a cute pencil topper/decor for my daughters class parties. I just recently participated in a swap with the Glitter Queens group I belong to, can't wait to see all the awesome cards the other ladies made. Here's a pic of one of my cards, I'll post a new one tomorrow!
