I started with white cardstock and layered it with tiny polka dot patterned paper by SEI - Grandpa's Attic . The flower is created with an acrylic set by Technique Tuesday called "Loves Me, Loves Me Not". The set has 5 petals and I flipped over one of them, did my own doodling and stamped "MISS you" with my new PAPERTREYink set. Then added a little black & white ribbon to finish it off!

It sounds like we're in for a winter storm here in Nebraska this weekend, so I'm camped out in my stampin room where it's warm and hope to post more creations later! Smiles, Pam :)

I think I should send this card to Shuggy since her family went to Hawaii without her! Poor girl!
Smiles, Pam :)

My sweet DIL bought this American Art stamp on sale at Hobby Lobby and was kind enough to stamp some images for me. I couldn't wait to color her with prismas and make a Valentine. There is an entire line of these cute stamps. I wonder if she has a name? You know, like Bella . . . :)
Supplies used: Stampin Up! Pretty in Pink cardstock, KI Memories pink dotted paper, Happy Valentine's Day stamp is $1 stamp from M's. The little love tag is in a SU set - Love is in the Air and also used the Petite Patterns Background and stamped the tiny hearts with Versamark. For the oval under her foot, I used the SU small oval punch and made a stencil to color in.

This is just a "teaser" photo because I wanted to let you all know that I really am making progress on my one-on-one swap card challenge. Tonight, I've finally got my design figured out and I've cut into the precious paper! There is no turning back now... STAY TUNED!!! :)

These are our "rules": We can optionally use: 1) one punch 2) one additional embellishment 3) one image stamp 4) any means of adding a saying/words to the front 5) card foldover can be altered as long as the finish size doesn't change 6) can use any tool to add visual effects 7) can use any stamp pads, markers or colored pencils 8) have to use items in our current inventory - we can't go buy anything!
Doesn't this sound like FUN?! I know!! But, I'm struggling to get started, as I want to create a card worthly of these awesome papers! Stay tuned!! I'll post the finished card by Saturday, I hope!! : ) Keep Smiling! Pam :)

I made 11 of these Valentine's for a card swap with my SU Stamp Club. This layout isn't my original idea, but one that I cased from MJ - one of my favorite swapping partners. She had used patterned paper on the bottom and a flower image over the friend stamp.
Stamp Sets Used: Stampin Up!© Lexicon of Love, Love is in the Air, Print Pattern

And once I find a simple design, I tend to make several cards with it, just modifying it as I go. Here is another with this design... a Valentine!
