Winter Wishes

Even though it hasn't looked like winter most of the time this year, I've still been playing around with my winter stamps. This is a brand new set (for me) from Verve that I just love!! The mittens are just too cute! I colored them in with markers - wisteria, rose, garden green, and eggplant. I added the hearts free hand to dress them up. My card base is eggplant and then I used a strip of retired design paper to coordinate with the mittens. I embossed my sentiment with white powder so that it would show up better on the design paper. Lastly, I used my paper piercer to create a border around part of my focal point.
Warm winter wishes everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope everyone is enjoying their Valentine's Day!
The card I am sharing today is a digital card that I created using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software. I love how easy it is to create a digital card and convert it to a picture. For this one I simply used the heart punch multiple times and just resized it a little and filled it with different papers. My colors are very vanilla, mambo melon, pretty in pink, and basic gray. The patterns are from the design series collection. I was even able to use silver glitter paper for some added pizzaz :o) My sentiment is from SU's Heard from the Heart set.
Have a happy day!
