Swirly Fun

Today's card is for this week's color challenge over on SCS to use Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Real Red. At first I wasn't feeling this color combination, but I think it turned out all right in the end. I started with the two hearts from Heart to Heart. I stamped the larger heart in Blue Bayou and the smaller heart twice in Soft Sky. I then punched the hearts out with my Super Jumbo and Mega Marvy heart punches and sponged with Soft Sky and Blue Bayou ink. Next I taped a piece of Blue Bayou and Soft Sky cardstock together and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Flirty Phrases set and I used the frame stamp from Thoughtful Phrases around it and then punched out with the Word Window punch. for a little embellishment, I stamped the small heart from Wild Thing in Real Red and then lightly went over the middle with a blender pen to lift a little of the color. The polka dot ribbon was a find in the $1 bin at Michael's a while back.

So, have y'all been checking out the crazy delicious projects on the Verve Blog? Hop on over and give the girls a little love - they do such a great job!

  11. Julee, I love this card. It is very off the usual valentine colours, but I think that is what makes it so appealing.

  12. So I have been making Valentine cards like crazy and I have about 6 or 7 odds and end hand-me-down hearts but I have found that NONE of them are solid like yours in this set. I'm thinkin' I need some solid ones!!

    THANKS!!
