Valentines A Plenty

Howdy! Another quick post today...playing catch up again. I have 2 cards for you today so I'll get right to the point!
This first one is a super simple greeting but still a lot of fun in my book. I can't wait to send it! The focal point image is an a'la carte image featured in the Mini catalog. It is called Be My Valentine and it caught my eye as soon as I thumbed through the new mini catalog. That floral background reminded me of pretty lace and I couldn't wait to use it just like they did in the SU example photo. I also love to be able to buy just one image now and then. First, I stamped the image in Rose red onto Whisper White CS and also once in Basic Black onto Crumb Cake CS. Then, I trimmed out the banner portion of the image and paper pieced it onto the red copy. Easy peasy! It is finished off with a black designer button and a little bit of linen thread before mounting it onto my card foundation of Crumb Cake CS. The Rose Red polka dot print is from the Subtles Patterns DSP. The white lace border is punched with the Eyelet Edge Border punch.

Now, onto the 2nd card for today...
This one may look familiar. I CASEd this one from the Filled with Love Bundle promotion brochure. I liked it so much that I made not one change. Well, actually I used Certainly Celery ribbon instead of Old Olive but I figured that out after the fact. I wanted to post it here because I wanted to remind everyone that SU catalogs and brochures are a GREAT source of inspiration. Who hasn't sat down to make a card and just drawn a complete blank about how to start? Well, sometimes all it takes is thumbing through a catalog or maybe a browse over the SU website to get your juices flowing again.

For further info about today's projects, just holler. I would be glad to point you in the right direction. Have a great day!
