Some pink Valentines

I'm still making Valentines.  These 2 have several things in common: the papers and the Sizzix embossed background.  I'm so glad I got this folder; it works really nice for Valentine's Day cards without being too obvious.   

This first one uses some new Hero Arts flower stamps and a doily.  The flowers were paper-pieced using my favorite ginghams and dots for both the flowers and the leaves.


Supplies: white and St. Valentino Core'dinations cardstocks, Amuse pink and green petite gingham papers (a gift from from Robin), The Paper Store Baby Girl Pink Gingham, BoBunny green gingham, BoBunny double dots Passion Fruit and Avocado designer papers, Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art, Paper Salon sentiment, versafine onyx black ink, Sizzix embossing folder with hearts and swirls, paper doily, pink gems


And this one has very little stamping.  I used my scalloped heart nesties to make a negative image to pop above the gingham background, and then centered a smaller nestie heart in the center, also popping it up.  The papers are some of the same used above, and I added the beautiful white lace ribbon and a tiny pearl heart.

Supplies: white and St. Valentino Core'dinations cardstocks,  Amuse pink gingham, BoBunny passion fruit dot designer papers, versafine onyx black ink, Sizzix embossing folder, white crochet lace (a gift from Carole), pink pearl heart

I'm entering the first one in Wee Memories "Anything Goes" challenge this week and the second one in the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Heart Theme challenge and into the Tuesday Trigger challenge at Moxie Fab World.
