Love You Much cards! TSSC #46

Here are a couple of cards using the new Love You Much bundle that is a Sneak Peek Special Buy right now through January 31 from Stampin' Up!

This new Candy Lane Designer Paper is just adorable! Love the colors in it: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa and Whisper White. They are just yummy together and perfect to make all kinds of Valentine cards, gifts and goodie holders, as well as other greetings throughout the year.

I used Technostamper's sketch TSSC#46 as the basis of my design, but as you can see I changed it up a bit to accommodate the size of the stamps in this set. The sketch is to the left.

For the little heart punches, I took a strip of red cardstock, rubbed it well with a VersaMark pad, sprinkled it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated it. These make sparkly little hearts to embellish your projects. : )

Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Basic Brown, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette; VersaMark
Paper: Candy Lane Designer Paper; Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette cardstock
Accessories: Heart to Heart Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Blender Pens, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

When our "Stamp Therapy" group of demo friends met in December, we each made cards to swap with the new Love You Much set. The above card was my swap and the one to the left is by Connie Stewart.

Doesn't Connie's layout of three strips of the Candy Lane DP layered on Close to Cocoa then a card of Pink Pirouette make a striking card? Connie also made good use of punches on her card, using the 1 1/4, 1/1/8 Circle, Scallop Circle, Large Oval and Small Oval punches. Love the touch of Ridimg Hood Red behind the "friend to friend" sentiment on her card!

I'll have more of the swap cards to share the next day or so.

Thanks for visiting today. I'm so glad to be back to posting again and I appreciate you sticking with me. : )

Have a good week!
