CAS Valentines

Hey there! I just got this Hearts & Hugs set in the mail yesterday from Our Craft Lounge and thought it would be perfect for some CAS-style cards. I used this layout from the Clean & Simple Blog, and the *love* theme fits into Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge.

I'm also excited to announce that I'm going to guest design this month for Paper Temptress! Patricia sent me a whole BUNCH of gorgeous papers to play with, so yesterday I got right to it and made these cards.



On this first one, the hearts and circles are up on separate layers of foam tape. I added small dots of candy cane stickles to the dots in the X's. The red paper is PT's Vermillion Sparkle.....gorgeous stuff with a really pretty, subtle sparkle. Here's a close-up:



On this second one I punched some hearts and the wavy border in PT's Rosso Incandescent....



This CS is textured with a heavier gold sparkle. The punched hearts are up on foam tape. The card base is PT's Pink Double Duty, which is textured on one side and smooth on the other.

Here's a close-up:



Thanks for stopping by!
