My card today is on the very CAS side of things. Don’t let that fool you..I’m sure it takes longer for me to do CAS than to do a “normal” card. For the most part, I have trouble w/ CAS. The images are really cute but I need more practice w/ these type of images. The hearts were stamped on the linen bg & I thought it needed more so I outlined them w/ a glue pen & sprinkled on some glitter. For the Love word, I sponged Distress inks from left to right then stamped & glittered it. I found a piece of patterned paper just the right size & colors so I used it to back the white & to die cut the swirly.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

Today’s Color Challenge (CC671) on Splitcoast is silver, red & white & dessert option is to make a Valentine. When I saw the color combo last night, I started thinking about big hearts & sequins & somewhere along the line it turned into “what if I fill the heart w/ sequins?” & that’s where I went with my card.
After I die cut the hearts, I started gluing down the sequins. I started w/ big red ones then added small red ones (& 1 silver) on top. Silver sequins were used on the small heart & I outlined both w/ a silver sharpie. The white linen bg was sponged w/ a couple of red Distress inks from the top down then to soften the blend, I sponged white Brilliance from the lower edge of the red upwards. That left a bit of a sheen that you see in the closeup. It was die cut twice & a metallic silver layer added in between. The little hearts below the greeting were filled w/ red stickles.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC621) is black, white & red all over..w/ the dessert option of making a Valentine or Anniversary card. These are probably my favorite colors for a Valentine and I thought they would be perfect for this idea I had of having a city silhouette inside a large heart opening.
I kind of surprised myself..no stamping & no coloring! Just a whole bunch of die cuts. The city scene was cut out of black & die cut the silhouette behind it once out of white & then again out of the red. The red version was offset to add a little space between it & the bg paper. A white glitter moon was added along w/ a little heart on a stem as sort of a balloon floating out of one of the windows. 
The squiggly line was die cut to act as the “heartbeat” w/ a double stacked Love & another little heart. 

Here’s a look at the inside. Except for the 2 little heart flowers, it was computer printed. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
