Heart of Roses

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!  Hope you get to spend  your day with someone special, be it your honey, your kids, or a good friend!

It took me awhile to get this Heart of Roses die......it sold out several times before I was able to get it into my shopping cart!  For today's first card, I cut it out of carnation, green apple, and white, and then pieced the roses and leaves back into the frame.

Heart of Roses

supplies: white, Green Apple, and Hero Arts Carnation cardstock, dp from Simple Stories wood plank, Simon's Heart of Roses and Painted Hugs dies

And I decided to go bright and channel my inner Donna Mikasa for my next card:

HeartofRoses

supplies: white and black cardstock, picked raspberry, carved pumpkin, and mustard seed distress inks, mini blending tools, Simon's Heart of Roses die and sentiment from Lila's Heart, Cuttlebug Cross My Heart embossing folder, gold sequins

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Happy Valentine's Day, Lin! Love both of your cards and the way you've used the gorgeous die is two completely different ways! The colours on your pieced heart are so pretty and it looks great again the wood bg! Beautiful inking and embossing on the second card and I love the way the heart and sentiment really pop against the gorgeous bg!
