Valentine’s Day is coming

Here’s a couple of cards in the spirit of the day that symbolizes love for people in many countries. Both of these were for Outlawz challenges this past week.

The black and white one was done for the sketch challenge.  I had these Martha Stewart petal shaped inks and decided to make two-tone hearts for a background with them.  Just align and press.  Voila’ a heart!  For texture I cut sponge squares and ran them through the cuttlebug, then colored in the one heart.  Add a ribbon, and you have an interesting composition.

The pink one is made with no stamps at all.  Using some scrap background papers, I taped them together and then adhered to the card.  The focal image is from an old calendar.  You know those tiny images they show on the backs of calendars so you can see the month by month photos.  Perfect for a valentine card.  Added a bow with my ever handy bow easy.  (it makes the prettiest style of bow) and the rest is all stickers. 

Thanks for looking.  Let me know if you post any of your creations to your blog.  Always open for ideas.
