More Valentines

A day away from Valentine’s Day … I’m having fun using several of the new items shown at the Craft & Hobby show.

(Like these new Thinlet dies from Sizzix)

This card was so random. It began because I was playing with some new Thinlet dies from Sizzix… you know how that goes.
So here’s how it happened: I tore open my new package of Sizzix Thinlits dies (658952), grabbed some paper scraps (from the Paper Source) and played. The scraps hung around my desk for a while until the teal cardstock magically appeared next to it. Then I had to play with the new glitter cardstock from American Crafts, and since I needed Valetine cards, I dug out a VERY old Sizzix die (one of the first dies I bought.)
Here’s a close-up of the heart:

The sentiment (Hero Arts) was white embossed, then cut using a Spellbinders Labels die. I edged it in blue, but didn’t like that so added Stampendous! Pearl Lustre Moonstone powder. The arrow (from the same Sizzix set) was dabbed with Tsukineko gold Delicata ink.

One more:

The red heart is from another new American Crafts glitter stock (this one corrugated, yum!); the bottom heart was stamped with an old Hero Arts heart and sprinkled with Judikins Aegean Silver glitter (love the look of that.) The gold heart is from scrap paper. The die cut hearts used that old Sizzix die. Sentiment from Paper Source, cut using a Spellbinders Labels 8 die; ribbon from Creative Imagination.

I’ll have one more Valentine card tomorrow, also featuring a new, unique die. Thanks for stopping by.
