A few Valentine's Cards

A fair warning----I am watch football while I type this post. I can't be responsible for what I type!!!

I thought I would share a few Valentine's cards with you. Valentine's is one of my favorite holidays-it's great for everyone-school kids, husbands and wife's, and mostly us crafters.

INTERCEPTION!!!!!! Sorry-football is on, remember?

I just love this first card. I used one of my favorite techniques---clear embossing with sponging.
Here is a list of supplies from Close to My Heart-Cranberry Cardstock
Blush Cardstock
Grey Wool Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
Cranberry ribbon
chipboard heart
black ink
grey wool ink
cranberry ink
blush ink
February word puzzle stamp set
spot on background stamp set
versa mark ink
clear embossing powder
Other-scallop punch

Here are some simple directions for creating the look on the chipboard heart-
Stamp a pattern image on the chipboard
Sprinkle with clear embossing powder
Heat emboss
Using a a sponge add ink, blending the colors

I really love lady bugs, I think they are so cute and work for every occasion-from love to get well.(I told you I was distracted by football.....)

I am almost sure that I had an inspiration for this card....I can't remember from where. (If you know leave me a comment so I can give credit)

Liquid glass is an awesome way to high light a specific section of a card. On this card I just love the way it show cases the heart in the I "heart" you.

I should be rooting for Texas-A big 12 team, but as a die hard Texas Tech fan I have a real hard time rooting for UT.

Roll Tide Roll makes me think of a a bottle of Tide detergent rolling down a hill. LOL Sorry, I couldn't resist. I am not familiar with college football teams(which might have you throwing said Tide detergent at my head)

I absolutely ADORE your first card! That heart is fantastic! Thanks for sharing your tips. Don't get me wrong, the other cards a very nice, too, but that first one. Magnificent!
