To make my Valentine, I did things backwards from the way I usually do. I picked the paper first, instead of coloring the images, then picking paper. It just seemed the better way to go since there isn’t a lot of coloring to do w/ these images. After I had the 3 pieces I wanted to use from the collection, I found a solid pink that would work & put it into my Misti. They were stamped first w/ the Memento, then I added just a hint of pink w/ a couple of Copics & a little white to the mailbox & envelope w/ a white Prismacolor pencil. I stamped over it w/ the Versafine, added the greeting, then added some pink sparkle w/ a Wink of Stella pen. Sorry you really can’t see it in pictures, but in person, it adds a nice sparkle. The little hearts were cut using the Love die onto some leftover pink w/ another partial image of the Mailbox w/ Hearts

Here’s a look at the inside w/ more of the hearts.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Congrats to Carolyn, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS521) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I really fell for THIS one. I liked the matching border & embossing folder but since I don’t have any like that, I used a different folder, different image & made mine monochromatic instead of rainbow colors.

My winter card has a white background embossed w/ a folder that has the dots on top & snowflakes below. The folder has a blank band in between the two, but it’s covered up by my image panel. The image was stamped w/ the navy blue ink onto a stitched panel & I added just strips of the dk blue card stock on top & bottom. Only the first part of the greeting was stamped on a white circle & backed w/ a dk blue stitched circle. Just a little stickles was added on the trees for some winter sparkle.

Here’s the inside…I must apologize for how blotchy it looks. I was anxious to get it in the mail & already wrote a message inside before I took the picture. The picture suffers some from photo editing to try to blot it out, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to the January Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through SundayJan 22  to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 23 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Winter Wear & Winter Fun Backgrounds! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! 

To make my Valentine card, I had a tag and little strip of water color background & thought the colors would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I also had a little piece of white w/ the negative (left over part) of a die cut & trimmed the bottom to fit the tag; just to dress it up a bit. The Mini Scallop & Scroll dies were cut out of a paint chip I found w/ colors that went w/ my watercolor tag. One of the colors was “Coral Kiss” & I thought that went as well, so I left it. The little hearts were cut out using the Love die & the top 3/4 of the white panel was embossed w/ a woodgrain folder to add a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside.
