Love You Much

Good morning! I had the best night last night! We went to Ikea for dinner and some shopping and when I got home, my new Stampin' Up! catalogs were sitting at the door! Let me tell you- AWESOME! My list of wants is already super long! Hee! Then, I get in, get the girls to bed and finally sit down to check my email. Well, more good news! I finally sent a card in to Cards Magazine (after saying for about a year that I would) and it got picked up for their June issue! Hee! Pretty good evening, wouldn't you say!!

Anyways, with such good news about cards, I wanted to make something! I decided to play along with this month's WICKED color challenge. We had to use Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, and Baja Blue. I used my new Love You much set to make this:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Love You Much set
Ink: Basic Black, Baja Blue Classic inks
Paper: Baja Blue, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Kraft card stock; watercolor paper
Accessories: Piercing tool, Scallop Edge punch, Kraft taffeta ribbon, White Signo gel pen, Aqua Writers, Dimensionals

I stamped the hearts onto watercolor paper and colored them in using my aqua writer. After they dried, I added white details to it with the gel pen. I also colored in my 'love' with the gel pen. All the stitching is faux, also with the pen! Hee! I think it may be a new favorite tool!!

Anyways, all you demos out there should get your SUO on and play along with the WICKED challenge at Splitcoast Stampers!!

Have a great day!

I just came across your blog last week from Nancy Riley's weekly IPicks. I just loved your Tree of Hearts card. It was on my list to acquire, but after seeing your creation, I had to order it! Your "Love You Much" card is awesome! I like the color combinations. Everything I'm seeing on other sites is red/pink/chocolate. Your take on this has a soft and refreshing look!

Thanks for sharing your creations!

Congratulations on getting your card published! I want an autographed copy. At least that will be one less magazine to count next year. ROTFL!

Take care,

That's great! I keep saying the same thing about sending in a card and now you have inspired me to!
