Slow Down, Valentine!

A pair of Canadian geese are flying over just as I'm beginning to write.  I wonder if they're speaking honking in goose-love language?  More likely one is honking to the other, 'Slow down! You move too fast!'



Once upon a time I created lots of cards in square form.  But in recent years, I rarely use a square for the card's shape.  Maybe my own subconscious way to save the few cents of extra postage?    Seems silly when it's really an enjoyable space with which to create!

  This valentine's rich contrast comes from the Sending Love paper stack peeking from behind the black heart cut-out.  It's really an easy-to-create design created with the Sweet + Sassy framelits.  The small white heart shapes are from the Love Notes framelits, cut after stamping the tiny hugs and kisses from Sealed with Love.  That bitty red heart?  Guesses?  It's from the Confetti Hearts punch! 

I'm tickled to play along in the SU! Only Challenges #167 and this week's F4A367 challenge at SCS.

Straight Through the Heart(s)! * FMS272

Trying to get my inky play time in this week, as tomorrow takes me away from my own stampy zone for a few days.  Funny how that always makes me yearn to get back to my table of rubber + inks ... even now!  Hey ... I LOVE what I do!    

The clean + simple sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches is totally inspiring.  Basically, when I see circles I have to take a closer look.   




   Still having fun with the Love Notes Framelits, which include these arrows, slotted heart, folded double heart + lots more ... 14 dies in this set!  You can see more of these fabby dies in this previous post, and 1 of the darling envelopes in this post.  ;)

My colors are from the CC619 color challenge, along with adding the 'dessert' option of using dies!  Colors include Hello Honey, Rich Razzleberry, and Tempting Turquoise ... just in case you'd like to add a non-traditional twist to your valentines.  *wink*

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing!  I've welcomed new stampers to my fabby group, taking advantage of the sweet deal of adding two free stamp sets (any value!) to their kit.  And, there's still more free stamps + more for every order of $50+ ... no limits!  Let me know if you have any questions ... or even 'wishes'!   Download the catalogs from the side column 24/7.  

Thanks a bunch for your sweet tokens of comments + cyber hugs.  Come see me at the convention center in Plano, TX this weekend if you're out 'n about!

Tradition? Texture? Dimension? All Here!

Today's card has a bit of the traditional, plus texture, and one of my personal faves ... dimension! 


Even though there are bazillions of ways to share a greeting for February 14 ... there's always the traditional "Happy Valentine's Day" being said or written.  I love this pretty font, too!


Texture fans will enjoy the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions embossing folder.  It's from the new Occasions catalog, along with the 27-piece Sealed with Love stamp featured today.  Now the stamp set can purchased singly, or it's also available in a bundle!  The coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies include 14 fun pieces ... lots of stamps + dies in this combo.


Inside there's room for a combo of two stamps alongside the Rose Red contrast strip down the side.  I love the way the open hearts in the border die allow the Rose Red to peek through to the front.

Need your own copy of the Occasions catalog?  Please contact me! In the meantime, feel free to download it from the right side column here on my blog.  

This is one of the stamping projects I'll share with my team this weekend as we gather for some stamping joys.   Hope you find some ink + paper time as well!
