Be My Valentine Card

I know it's a little early, but I wanted to get a head start on my Valentine's Day cards.  I have been playing with watercolor paper and Dylusions Ink Sprays.  They are a little messy but worth it.  I also love anything sparkly and the Glimmer Mist Sprays are also fun to add for a bit of sparkle. I hope this inspires you to get a head start on your Valentine's Day cards.  I'll see you next month.

Supplies I used:
Just For Fun Stamps-
B1944 Dot Heart
B2240 Be My Valentine
Archival Ink- Jet Black
Dylusions Ink Sprays-  Cherry Pie, Funky Fuchsia & Vibrant Turquoise
Tattered Angels- Glimmer Mist- Cherry
Red, Pink Black & Turquoise Card Stock
Hope you enjoyed these two cards.  
Hugs, Heidi

Snowy Winter Card

Happy New Year to you!  I hope everyone had a great time and is ready for a wonderful 2016! 
It's been snowing here and very cold.  We don't normally get much snow here.  We have been here 3 years and this year the snow is more than the last two together.  It had me thinking of how pretty it is when the trees are all covered with snow and the stars are shinning bright.  So I thought JFF has some wonderful tree stamps and bingo..... here it is!

Here is list of supplies:
Just For Fun Stamp- D3822 Fir Trees
Purple Pattern Card Stock
Versa Mark Ink Pad
White Embossing Powder
White Acrylic Paint
Water & Paint Brush
I stamped the Fir Trees all over and then covered it with embossing powder and heated.  
To get the falling snow, I got some paint on my pallet and added water to it just enough to make it thin enough to splatter with.  But not too thin that it is transparent.  Then with my brush, I tapped it with my finger on the handle of the brush down towards the metal part that hold the bristles in.
I hope you enjoy making your winter wonder land.  
Hugs, Heidi
