Modified Mono Die Valentine

I was so happy when I saw this new little Embosslit in the new Stampin' Up occasions mini catalog. I had already seen this technique and knew this would sweet little scalloped dotted heart would be lovely used in this way. I layered the hearts on a pale pink vellum. The greeting (from Inkadinkadoo) is also stamped on the same pink vellum. The base card is white, the hearts were white and then sponged with pink. The ribbon is pink. I think the overall look is just soft and delicate. I have certainly enjoyed making several different Valentines this year with several of the techniques in the February 2010 issue of the TJ newsletter. I have a few more Valentines to share before Valentine's Day. I hope you are finding the current issue inspiring as you make your own Valentine's Day cards.
Happy creating!

Be My Valentine Darling

Who doesn't like nice downloadable images? Twisted Papers has a very large selection of high quality images, ready to be downloaded immediately.

I fell in love with a risque collage sheets and downloaded a sheet to create scrappy valentine cards.

I must say, I was very impressed when I printed out my image onto white cardstock. I will definately be visiting Twisted Papers regularly.

When I think of scrappy cards, I think big pink or ivory bows, music sheets and downloadable photos, so I gathered those items together and this card is the result of my interpretation of scrappy cards.

Edges of paper were distressed with Tim Holtz's Old Paper distress ink. The buttons came from my collection, and the heart was purchased at the dollar store. Gotta love the dollar stores, eh?!

A big thank you goes out to Twisted Papers for being one of this month's sponsors.
