Valentine's Cards

Happy Friday everyone! It has been a pretty good week here and now it is time for a new challenge at Frosted Designs! This week we are asking you to use acrylic, vellum or transparencies on your cards, layouts and projects! Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps and they were nice enough to provide our team with a few digis to work with. I am very new to digis and have not made the investment in Copics just yet. And... I am on a scrapbooking spending freeze soooo I don't have many Valentine's papers and my selections were limited!! With that said... here are 2 Valentine's Cards I made this week....
This card was made using the sketch at Cardabilities. I used a vellum heart that I ran through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and added some stickles! You know I love to bling up my projects!! The Stitchy Bear Stamps digi I used on this card is called Valentine's Scruffles!

This card was made using the sketch at Mojo Monday! I used pink vellum on this one that I also ran through the Cuttlebug to get the heart pattern on it! The Stitchy Bear Stamps digi is called Bunnyblu!

I will be sending these cards out to my 2 oldest daughters with some fun Valentine's treats! I hope you get a chance to stop by Frosted Designs to see what the rest of our team did and better yet... I would love to see you play along!! Have a great weekend!

For a lady that just started making cards.... they are AWESOME. I sure hope I see you while we are in Dallas. It would be great to meet you. Pam, Elizabeth, Melissa and I will be there from the Sassy team and Sandi is talking about coming too for a little while as she lives nearby too. We shall see!

You can not say anymore you are not a card maker... LOL
Great cards! I love how you used the cuttlebag to the vellum papers.
I'm sure your daughters will love the cards!

Yep, Miss Barb, you have officially moved into the cardmaker slot! What with your winning news of yesterday, you got what it takes!

I was on a spending freeze, too but I've had a few little purchases creep in. Saving for all the post CHA stuff! Have a great weekend. Wish the sun would stick around a few more days!
