Jana here: I went the wimpy route and used cards I made because I needed to send a few out. I used Opus Gluei as my excuse, or the other way around. Nothing too complicated. I used my new Copic markers. I sooooo love them. They made this seemingly simple little stamp just fabulous.
I made this one and three others. I used the same "ingredients", except for switching the background on 2 of the cards.
Check out the other one on my blog. I posted both over there.
Rosemary here and I made a series of ATCs - only showing one because well, they're all alike this go-round! I went all girly and frilly and gooey - YAY! I've been shoveling snow so something other than only white is appealing to me!
I have mixed emotions on Valentine's Day; I've had wonderful ones where I felt like I was walking on air and some awful ones where I just wanted to go and sit in a dark room and eat a pound of high quality chocolates I gifted myself (there is NOTHING wrong with that!). But LOVE is grand whether we have it for a day, a year, or twenty plus years. We've all loved and been loved in our lives and it's a blessing to marvel in that we get to experience those highs and lows. Oh how boring life would be otherwise!
This ATC makes me think of those little card Valentines we had as kids - I guess that when Valentine's Day is best - the little shoebox mailboxes or brown paper bags that we decorated and put our names on and then we went around and filled everyone's up!
The products used are K&Company Ka-Zoo paper, Martha Stewart and Fiskars punches, QuickQuotes Powderpuff "Pink Cheeks" , computer-generated sentiment, and Darice plastic adhesive hearts.
Oh, and before we forget - we have a little giveaway! A brand new, sitting in the Borders bag, copy of StampIt! Cards magazine published by the fine folks at PaperCrafts magazine. (I was in the bookstore and thought, ooh, this would be nice to buy and heck why not two and share the LOVE with our Opus Gluei ladies!?!) So, just enter a project for this challenge and we'll put the names into a hat or a random generator (I lean toward the low-tech per se) and draw out a lucky winner! We'll announce it at the next challenge and I will mail it out super fast - promise)
