Cherry Cobbler Valentine

I love Cherry Cobbler!  It just works so well with just about everything!  It is such a rich colour and perfect for Christmas and Valentine projects.

Cherry Valentine

Here is a Valentine I created with the Timeless Portrait Designer Paper, and the combination of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla is just so warm and rich.  This is such and easy card to try at home.  I've also added some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and a few Vanilla pearls to just add elegance and class to this design.  I also love use the Heart Framelits set for getting those heart images perfectly cut and to easily apply the custom heart mat, which was also cut with our new Framelits.

Valentine's Class

Join me for this year's Valentine Class where you will be using the "You are Loved Stamp Set" and the "Take it To Heart Stamp Set".  We will be using a variety of techniques to create these looks and also be using our new Framelits for getting those perfect heart shaped cuts.

Embossed

Double Embossed Card

Forever

Colored with Markers and Blender Pens

Happy

This card combines the gorgeous colours of Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder and involves a variety of punching.

Love
Blushing Bride and Basic Gray make up this winning combination of color and one of the stamped images from the Take It To Heart set

Sweet Friend has that winning combination of Pink Pirouette and Expresso for it's color combination.
