Just For You

Hello and Happy February!
February seems to make us all think of hearts
letting us get all our fun and pretty heart stamps, dies and papers out! 
Not that you CAN"T use hearts year round, it just seems that February is
HEART month which is our theme at
The Sisterhood of Crafters

I had a lot of fun making this pretty card after I saw
some great inspiration for Valentine tutorials on the
Spellbinders blog HERE!
If you scroll on down you will see what inspired me.
It seems I have needed LOTS of inspiration lately,
good thing there is a lot of it out there!

I used one of my last floral dies I had purchased
'Bold Blooms',   along with a few others, it's been awhile, maybe I need some new floral dies
soon, not a hardship, right?

I used a 3D embossing folder of hearts that came with my new Sizzix Switch
that my hubby got me for Christmas 2022.  I love how pretty those
hearts are and how they seem to 'pop' up!
The flowers are a mixture of die flowers I already had created,
some are Spellbinders Bold Blooms and some are
Pretty Pink Posh Spring Foliage dies.
The banner the stamped sentiment is on is one of MY very favorite
banner dies I have.  I think it is a 'must' have for any paper crafter
as the banners are in the smallest size up to a large one, so very useful
for many one line sentiments!!  It is from Honey Bee..

You can tell by the picture what a great variety of sizes you get, 
but this picture is not true to size, just giving you an
idea of what they look like! I used the second one up from the bottom for my card!

So, why not pop on over to The Sisterhood and see all our
creatively pretty hearts from my 'sistahs'!!

You've done so many fabulous cards with these flowers! They've served you well. LOVE the hearts embossing folder! The effect of them piled onto each other is what's so cool about the 3D folders. I can't seem to get enough. This is just so pretty with the colorful flowers splashed onto all that white. I would love to have that banner set. It wouldn't be the first time you've enabled me!
