A Couple of Valentine's

Happy Thursday everyone!! Just popping in to post a couple of cards I created yesterday. I am kind of on a roll with creating Valentine's cards as I have received a few orders from some companies as of late. I went from having no stamps for Valentine's day to having a ton!!

My first card was inspired by the new Freshly Made Sketches #419.

Below is the sketch I used for my inspiration.

The splattered paper in the back was not supposed to be for this card BUT the card I created it for needed something different so I decided to use it for this card.

The sentiments are from Altenew's "Circle Sentiments," Hero Arts Kit of the Month, and the Ink Blot Shop's Sentiment Label Blocks. The hearts are stickers from Elle's Studio.

I like the layering of the sentiments, though that is NOT what I had in mind in the first place.

My second card was inspired by the Paper Craft Crew's Challenge #367 Inspiration photo. I was inspired by the red of the flowers and the glasses.

Instead of wine glasses, I used champagne glasses on my card.

I am attempting to use more pattern paper on my cards as I have a mountain of it to use up. I decided to use some from Pebbles "Be Mine" 6" by 6" paper pad on this card.

The sentiment is from MFT's new "Little Love Notes" stamp set and the champagne glasses are from Reverse Confetti's "Cake and Champagne" stamp set. I adore this Cake and Champagne set and have a couple cards coming up that I will be posting.

I added clear sequins with little dots of Diamond Stickles to mimic champagne "bubbles" on and above the glasses. The heart is one that was from my stash.

On another note, remember that glass fusing class I took? My friend picked up my piece for me and I really like how it came out!!!

I want to learn how to use this to make jewelry now. It was so fun to do!!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a FABULOUS afternoon!!
