MCT – 48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop

manly-valentines-card-02-2016-1

Good morning and welcome to another “48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop!”  Today we have a special FLASH sale going on because we have 2 new items that are available NOW for sale HERE! Since we just celebrated our 5 year anniversary, Emma thought….. “Why should we end the party now……right?” 😀  If you came from Kim’s Blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything!

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner I decided to make two Valentine’s Day cards.  For the first card I’m showcasing the NEW “Mad for Plaid”.  This is an awesome stamp set.  You can customize your own plaid background with the colors and lines you want!!! 🙂

Since the background is the focal point I didn’t want to use many decorative elements.  I die-cut different pieces: a big heart from “Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies”, an envelope from “Mini Stitched Envelope Die” and to close it a tiny heart from “Carved Heart” and ‘happy’ from “Happy Everything”.  I heat embossed “Valentine’s day” onto vellum paper.  To finish the card I added gold thread and a thin border of glitter CS.

The second card is a watercolored card. Just like the first card I wanted the background to be the focal point.  I used the NEW “Stitched Hearts Background”. 🙂

I used Tim Holtz Distress ink pads to watercolor the hearts. For the sky I used Kuretake ZIG Clean Color markers.  I stamped a partial sentiment from “Puffy Hearts Just For You” and die-cut ‘love’ from “Love Die” in gold glitter CS.

Here is a closer look at the lovely stitches.  I also added Wink of Stella to some hearts… I think this die is to die for!!! 😉watercolor-valentines-card-02-2016-2
