Yesterdays Valentines cards

that swirl you see is heat embossed colorbox fluid chalk ink ( lipstick red) on a transparency sheet ( hammermill inkjet kind) with detail clear embossing powder... the fourth technique challenge at the stamp shack is to do something different that you havent tried before with a transparency. I have up until this point only used stazon ink on mine but, i didnt have that in red ( only black brown and white) so, seeing as this worked for me i doubt i will buy any more colors of stazon because i hate the way it smells...
I thought it turned out pretty neat... the background ( wildhearts su) and the amour (also su from the mon ami set) are stamped with ruby red dye ink on very vanilla cardstock. the heart's up on a pop dot and matted with a scrap of river rock ( as is the cardbase it self) the Ribbons from May arts.
Now this one came together really fast, the sentiment ( Define your life SU) was a granted wish to me from Oregonstamper ( thanks Kitty!) and it was on the top of my pile of things to "put away" haha, i had printed out this SC160 sketch at splitcoast yesterday afternoon not knowing if i would ever get around to it and rather then cleaning i started making cards... :)
the printed paper is from Bo Bunny Press ( velvet paisley) and is double sided. the textured cardstocks are from Bazzill, the chipboard flowers are from Heidi Swapp. the pearls in the centers are from MM. the fiber is unknown, and the mini brads are from Lasting Impressions. so the whole things 5 x 7 in real life.
It's snowed here all day and (still snowing) supposed to do this for the next 4 or 5 days in a row... IE every time we have to drive out of town it does this i think... gotta remember when i get to the only need one visit a year point to make sure they can do it when the weathers nice.
Stay Warm this weekend!

These are lovely Valentine's! I especially like the three panel layout on the last card. The added embellishments on top of the panels make this card outstanding!

Lovely cards, Stacy.

I actually made some cards last night at Archivers when I was suppose to be scrapbooking at the crop!!

At least, I have 6 loved them cards that I can send it. But, they are awfully too pretty to part with.
