Lots of Lovin’

It’s Friday, so time for another challenge at QKR Stampede!  Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself? My DT card features a QKR digital image named Held Prisoner. I love the matching heart paper in two colors, and with a bit of fussy-cutting and an Exacto knife made him "hold" the sentiment circle and one heart in his hands.  So fun! The sentiment on the front of the card is from We Are 3, the inside sentiment is computer generated.

I was digging through a box of partial cards and miscellaneous stamped images when organizing my stash and this sweet digi caught my attention. I had stamped and foiled it many years ago then set it aside. Decided that snow is the time that she needed to be featured on a card front! I used an Exacto knife to cut around her wings so that I could pop them up to add a bit of depth. Used Tombow markers to add muted colors that compliment the foil. Used my Scor-Pal (which also was attracting dust) to create the dark background.

My final card this posting uses another item I found when organizing my stash; a heart shaped embellishment from a swap many years ago.  I decided to create a shabby chic card with it. I’ve always admired this style of card, but really struggle to make them so I kept this one pretty simple. I adhered the heart embellie atop a few scraps of patterned paper, and added a pretty sentiment circle. I sized the card to fit into a standard-sized envelope.
