Krafty Valentine

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  Do you have exciting plans for the weekend?  Absolutely nothing planned here, but that means there just might be a little time at some point I can sneak away to do a little crafting!

I snuck away from the boys the other day and made another 30 minutes or less card.  This one timed in at 21 minutes and that was with a good 3 minutes of searching for the heart embossing folder!  When I was at Michael's spending my Christmas gift cards last week, I happened across a Recollections pad of Valentine's paper that has both white and kraft based papers in it.  Talk about love!  It just jumped into my cart! {grin}


I was inspired by the pad to try a little white and kraft combo.  I usually choose one or the other, but was really digging the contrast of the white on the kraft.  Pulled out a little Island Indigo to match one of the ribbons in the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection and got to stamping with the new No Matter What set.  The sentiment is stamped in Island Indigo on a Tiny Sweet Scallop die cut and I stamped the single heart repeatedly on both scallop edges, then filled in with a little Glossy Accents for an epoxy look.  The heart is stamped in Mix'd Media Inx and embossed, then I paper pieced the center heart with a scrap of paper and added a little more glossy accents.  The base is crumb cake and embossed with a Sizzix folder.  Super fun and the colors seem just a bit sassy.  Love it!

Okay, better get on with my work day.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
