Now on with the journey!!!

When I think of Love and Valentine's Day, I think red, white and frilly! So for my first card creation I wanted to make it just that... red, white and frilly! LOL! So I made this...

Frilly Hearts

To create my card I started off by cutting a long strip of white paper and then edge punching the width of the paper strip. I cut my flaps of scalloped punched paper approximately 1 inch in width and then I stamped my cute little heart from the Seal It! stamp set. I used the scallops as my guidelines... so perfect! Then I layered the stamped scalloped strips with a little bit of distress inks along the edge on a piece of scrap paper. I created a fast frame and wrapped it with some cute heart ribbon and a heart charm and VOILA!... red, white and frilly!

You can see the scalloped edge detail a little better here...


For my final card, I wanted to create a font inspired front panel so I searched through all of my amazing myStamp BOX stamp sets to find all the love and Valentine's Day inspired sentiments to use. And I found a ton! Here's my font inspired card...

Hanging Heart U

Stamp sets used: Funky Alphabet (love), Mini Alpha - Small Box (adore), Rough Copy Alphabet ("u"), Backgrounds (bubble wrap background), Mention It! ("you're so sweet"), Santa's Tags - Small Box (xoxo), Lots of Dots - Sentiments ("sweet"), Whatever! ("truly madly", "I (*heart*) U", "Hugz").

That's 8 stamps sets... including a Christmas stamp set!!! I know... crazy huh??

To celebrate this love inspired journey, I'm giving away a set of Making Memories "Love Notes" felt clips and a Making Memories "Je t'Adore" set of brads. How can you WIN this little LOVE RAK you ask? Just by commenting below and answering the following question...

Very cute cards. I'm not much of a valentine's day person myself, but these are really cute. So far, I think my favorite part of the train hop has been the variety - cards, layouts, and altered items... so much variety!
