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.

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS415) asks us to remake an old love/heart/Valentine card of our own. As one of the Featured Stamper Hostesses where it’s our gig to CASE a another stamper’s card, I don’t have any problem picking someone else’s work, but it’s super hard for me to CASE myself. Go figure! But I finally picked THIS one I made back in 2014. (The post on my blog for the old card is HERE.) And while we’re on the subject of CASEing oneself…Jiminy Cricket! My gallery is HUGE! How did that happen?!? I almost got lost in the “oh, I forgot about that one.” 
So anyway, I die cut the big LOVE just like I did on the earlier card. And I used the same greeting, just a different stamp of it. There was a piece of heavy foil covered c/s sitting around & I thought it looked kinda neat behind the cut out so I put it there. And it already had the petal thingie cut out behind the heart & I liked that, too. I left off the dp & just added a red die cut frame & a line of die cut hearts, embossed the frame directly on the card front & called it done.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Free For All (F4A363) Challenge asks us to make a Valentine. My Valentine  greeting & Love Maze images are wonderful all by themselves…but I couldn’t resist putting a pink pig into the mix. Especially when it’s Cupig! I colored him a little more pinky so his colors wouldn’t clash w/ the very pinky reds I’d already used to color the other images. I’ll admit…there was a lot of fussy cutting going on here, but I really liked having a black bg & it was the only way to have the lighter images show up. 
After I die cut the black panel, I added all the fussy cut images. It’s a toss up which was harder..the teeny tiny arrow or the teeny tiny hearts. The inside of the O was tough, too. Inside curves are always hard but a little trick I figured out. If you’re going to attach it to black, just use a black marker around the inside (& outside edges) to cover any white that’s showing & it will disguise any imperfections in the cutting. By the way..there is a way thru the Love maze. I found it pretty easily but when I drew it w/ a red pen, it wasn’t very visible so I colored everything below the line. There may even be more than one way, but this is mine.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
