Sending Love and Hugs
Another Valentine. I fell in love with this sweet floral embossing folder from Spellbinders; and I think it pairs nicely with hearts.

Simon's February Card Kit
My kit arrived a few days ago, and the first thing I played with were the holographic papers, the stencil, and the Fancy Love die. I think this makes a fun modern valentine!
supplies: Doll Pink and Simon Holographic Rainbows cardstock, Hearts and Stars stencil, Fancy Love die, Small Love You die, a heart die
I used the stencil, along with an embossing plate and mat, to transfer the heart design onto the holographic cardstock, then simply added an embellished sentiment.
I was pleased to get a pretty pink mesh bag, the Adhesive Sheets, and a Tri-Blend marker in my kit, also, along with the adorable stamp set called Sweet Days!

You Have My Heart
Valentine's Day is on the way, so I'll be in full heart mode now for awhile. My Mom sent us Valentines up through our adult years, and I have carried on that tradition, sending them to my family members and girlfriends.

For a January Birthday
I loved this embossing folder with sweet posies, and paired it with a little wreath of flowers that I had previously colored and had in my scrap basket.

Anemone Glimmer Blooms
Here's another card from Yana's Anemone Blooms collection, this time using a glimmer plate and hot foil.
Friday, January 13, 2023
Yana Smakula has a really lovely new collection that just released a few days ago - it's called Anemone Blooms, and it is amazing!
Today I have some cards that use her Anemone dies and matching sentiment dies from this collection. I wasn't familiar with this kind of anemone, so I looked it up and found pictures that suggested it comes in white, red, purple, and bright pink.
For my first card I used all colored foils for all my die-cutting.

Simon Says.......Something New
supplies: white cardstock, green paper from Studio Light Greens Winter Garden paper pad, ephemera items from Studio Light Winter Elements Winter Garden die-cut Block pad, Honey Bee Fancy Flakes cover die
I really liked the idea of this lovely lantern to help brighten the dark days of winter, and surrounded it with some pretty winter greens, and a sweet little robin! I held it together with Press'n'Seal, flipped it to secure all the pieces together on the reverse, and added some adhesive foam so that it would pop above my card base. The Honey Bee pierced snowflake background is new to me also, but it's been around for awhile.
I'm sorry to say that this particular ephemera pad is now sold out. But if you search Studio Light DIY block, you'll find some others that you might enjoy playing with.
