Valentine’s Reveal

I hope that you've been enjoying my recent posts where I've been sharing the bits and pieces of this sampler. I've been seeing these show up in various stamping blogs and social media, and with a nudge from a stamping friend, I decided to give it a try. Each section...

Building the Foundation

All those pieces of art that I've been creating need to go somewhere, so I had to make a pretty spot to hold them. My frame that this is going in is 12" x 12", which is perfect for a full sheet of DSP. I added some cardstock layers and some lacy diecuts on the edges...

Hearts Abound

This post features the last two sections in my sampler project. This image is the one and only piece that clearly makes it a Valentine's Day creation. Of course, the colors I used and the plethora of hearts and messages of love makes it pretty obvious it is a...

Swinging Heart

I'm not going to blog about "swinging" in the 70's sense (if you know what I mean). I'm using that word here to describe a bit what is going on with this card. You can't tell from the picture, but the right side of the heart is covering a half-heart cut in the base...

So Many Dies!

I was inspired to play last evening so I could participate in two challenges this week; more on those challenges in a bit. For this card I decided to focus (mostly) on items from the Annual catalog. When a new seasonal catalog has come out, it is so easy to overlook...
