This week on the Glitz blog, we're using a color theme--pink, silver, and/or gold. I wanted to use pink and silver, and since silver is kind of hard with digis, I used some light greys. I went through ALL of my Glitz files and pulled out anything pink or grey. There were quite a few, and it's nice how many of the Glitz pinks match. :)
I don't know about you, but I don't typically make Valentine's for my friends--well, not since I was a kid. I make them for my husband and my kids' classmates, and I'm usually done by that point. This year, I decided to make some for friends.
Here they are:
I started by using a Simon Says Stamp stencil and embossing paste for two of the cards, and adding mists to the other two cards. I printed off, fussy cut, and die-cut the different papers and elements. Digital is handy for making card sets...I didn't have to buy multiple packs of die-cuts.
This one was my favorite:
I took a digital sentiment from Glitz Design's Sunshine in My Soul and opened it in Silhouette Designer Studio. I traced around the letters and added a heart from Lori Whitlock.
Here are the rest of the cards:
For the Life is Beauty Full card, I used sentiments from Love You Madly (recolored) and Beautiful Dreamer. The "you are my sunshine" is cropped from the full verse, and I adjusted the hue a bit.
I layered the doily, heart, and sentiment from the Love You Madly collection. I love this collection! That grey woodgrain is from the Raven collection. Yep, a Halloween collection, since that's how I roll. :)
This last card is similar to the first, but I backed it with the grey and white polka dot. I love that little arrow from the Wild and Free elements!
What about you--are you making any Valentine's this year?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week.
