Happy Valentine's Day Card

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so when I got my new Winnie & Walter stamps I could not wait to get them inky and today was the day -- we are having a snow day because of the storm that hit us yesterday!!! 

Winnie & Walter just opened their doors and wow do they have some great stamp sets!!!  Here is my clean and simple v-day card:

The heart border and the small solid heart are popped up on foam tape. 

And this is the inside of the card:

Ingredients: W&W The Big, the Bold and the Happy; MFT Staggered Hearts Border Die-namics, Steel Blue ink; PTI grid card stock

PTI MIM #147 - Sending Birthday Wishes Card

I'm kicking off 2014 with PTI's latest Make it Monday Challenge.  This week's challenge is to create multi-later images from a single stamp brought to you courtesy of the amazing Betsy Veldman.

I decided to use the Birthday Tags set since I need to build up my b-day card stash. I also just got an order from PTI and could not wait to use those Tipped Tops dies!! You will be seeing those dies a lot here!

Anyway -- here's my card:

My background was inspired by a card Dawn McVey did here.

Ingredients: PTI Tipped Tops dies, LL: Ovals 2.25"; 2012 Birthday Tags
