Hi Guys

Well todays offering is for a challenge site.  The theme at 365 Cards today is Love and I have also done one for Mojo Monday.  The first is for 365 Cards

 For the love I punched hearts out of the Sweet and Sour speciality DSP and then added a border around them using Naturals Ivory paper stock.  I have teamed this with Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie cardstock punched with the Scallop trim border, I then added ribbon using the en vogue technique.  The letters are from the on board Alphabet Soup chipboard that have been covered with the Sweet and Sour papers and then sanded to give the edges a distressed look and pearls to just give it a bit of bling.  The greeting has been made using the Basic Phrases stamp set, punched out of the Modern label punch which coordinates nicely with the scallop oval.  I have then added the wide oval on the bottom.

Mojo Monday

I have used the I {heart} hearts stamp set to make this card.  I have stamped and cut out the hearts and  mounted some on Naturals Ivory cardstock and some just on stampin dimensionals.  I have added crystal effects to all of the hearts to give them a glossy appearance.  The 'faux ribbon' roses at the bottom of the card have been made by firstly punching out a 1 3/4" circle in Pumpkin Pie.  Then you need to cut round in a spiral.  Taking the outside end in your tweezers and twist until all twisted up.  Let it relax slightly and glue the bottom of the roses to the round bit that is left from cutting in a spiral.  Add a pearl to the top of each on and voila.  I have mounted them onto a 1 3/4" Rose Red card circle over the top of a piece of Pumpkin Pie 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.

I hope you like and until next time

happy crafting
