Love you much!

I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day. Our first as husband and wife. I love this stamp set, but can you believe, this was the first time I used it??!! I literally had to put the rubber on the wood before I even began stamping! I actually wasn't too happy with the end result, but satisfied. I wish I would have used Pretty in Pink instead of Bermuda Bay cs under the love birds, but I wanted to tie in his bow tie somehow. I am my own worst critic. 
Stamps: Love You Much
Papers: Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Melon Mambo CS, Rich Razzleberry CS, Bermuda Bay CS, Whisper White CS
Inks: Jet Black Stazon
Extras: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers, Basic Black Stampin' Write Journaler, Heart to Heart punch, Pinking Hearts Border punch, Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Rose Pink (from the Fine Cosmo) Stampin' Glitter, Heat and Stick Powder, Versamarker, Blender Pens, Mini Glue dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

A close up of my love birds. I hand drew the bow tie and her eyelashes. I used a blender pen to add blush to her cheeks. I used a Mini Glue dot to adhere the heart on to give it a little dimension.

How can you not love this border punch??!! Stampin' Up! came out with some brand new punches that you cannot live without. Check out the Occasions Mini Catalog now!! :D There is a picture of all of the current catalogs in my sidebar, just click on the picture and it will take you to an electronic version of the catalog.

My husband had a birthday last month, and this is what I made for him.

Close up of the sentiment. I love this new punch!! Can you believe if you spend $50 in products, you can get this punch for free??!! It is fabulous!

Another close up, this time of the crystal effects on the flames, and you can also see the Iridescent Ice e.p here as well. I love the subtle effect this adds. Crystal effects are really easy to use to add a little dimension to your project!
