The Sweetest Thing

Saturday's are one of my favourite days of the week for making cards. There are always so many choices out there for things to do. I try my best to do Jen's sketch each week from her blog i{heart}2stamp.

This week I knew I wanted to use some of the new SU! rub ons. I grabbed some of my Onboard Chipboard hearts and craft inks Pretty in Pink and Choc Chip. After heat setting them, I cut out the rub on that I wanted and applied it. The buttons are some that Brian picked up for me. The flirty ribbon that runs under the panels is retired from SU!.


Don't look too close at my paper piercing...it went crooked...haha!

Sharon from No Time To Stamp? put out her weekly challenge yesterday and it was to make a card Long and Low. I haven't made a card like this since probably Easter last year! I'd already had the Designer Paper out from my first card today so thought I'd just make another Valentine's Day card.

The butterfly has a little bit of glitter on her wings too. The next photo explains the little tags better.

Here is a close up of the heat and shrink plastic tags I made. I can't remember the correct name for this stuff that SU! used to sell a few years ago. Mine is white.


I stamped some of the saying from the hostess set, So Many Sayings. I punched them out with a Word Window Punch and the small hole is with the Crop-A-Dile. I just used my heat gun to shrink them up.


I then thread them through some silver elastic cord and used small glue dots to keep them in place so they didn't move around.


Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

I didn't think you could top the Beate card but I think you just may have with the Valentine Cards - oh how adorable they BOTH are. I love the first one .... I love the second one. Just can't pick one and say it's the best cause they're each unique. Repeat after me......virtual store........
