Happy Monday. I hope your week has started out well. The weather here is finally warming up. It is suppose to be in 60's most of the week. That makes me very happy. I know winter is not over but at least spring is getting closer.
Happy Valentines Day today too. We don't do anything special to celebrate because I think love should be celebrated everyday and it has become to commercialized now. Even though I feel that way I have something with hearts to share with you. I made this for the current Embellish magazine Color Trends With Hearts Challenge
I think it also qualifies for the current Peeps challenge hosted by Marinette which is to make a Valentine that includes Pink or Red. Mine uses both and I entered it in the Lawnscaping Challenge It's All About The Love too.
This is what I came up with.
I have had these heart shaped treat cups and stamps from SU for over a year. When I saw the concept I totally fell in love with it but have not had a chance to use them until now. I also followed this video from Dawn for how to make the door so you don't ruin the card getting the treats out. As you will see the card looks very similar but I still made a few changes. First off the colors. I started with a base of Hibiscus Cardstock then embossed it with tiny dots. The Stem was stamped with PTI Simply Chartreuse Ink. I matted the main image on a piece of Spring Rain Cardstock. The tab was made with the PTI Mini Scrapbook Series Tabs. Pure Poppy Saddle Stitched Ribbon and a tiny tag stamped with the Love You Sentiment in the Fillable Frames #10 stamp set finishes it off.
Inside the card looks like this.
I also decided to take the photo of my card with colored cardstock behind it today. I have seen a lot of people doing that now and wanted to give it a try too. What do you think, do you like it better then the plain white backdrop?
The new release from PTI is tonight. I have having a really hard time narrowing my list down, how about you? It would be really nice to have unlimited funds right now it sure would help a lot. I would have to get a new stamp room to hold it all too though.
That's it for now, I hope the rest of your week is a great one and I will be back soon with more to share.
