I love you times five

My folder of cards to be blogged is getting big. Time to do more than one. I was using up scraps or what someone referred to as the orphans of a big sheet.

ODBD November challenge

On OWH the Our Daily Bread Design challenge was to use a technique or tool you hadn't used for some time. I got out a stipple brush and used a Brick Red Distress Ink on the focal point. The heart is a Tim Holtz stamp and the sentiment is from one of the Hero Arts & OWH stamp sets. The papers are some leftovers from my stash. I finished the card with We are Memory Keepers bakers twine. I popped up the focal point with Scotch foam tape.

I am working on masculine love cards. I made 3 with these papers. More to come with different papers, same design

Owl Always Love you

I seem to have a mental block with the valentines so I did a love card. I have so much colored cardstock I decided I would start using it for the base instead of white. We will see how that works. I trimmed down one of the Michael's card bases that are pretty light weight and added to the inside to firm up the card.

I will give a shot to doing the card deets. Not accustomed to doing that at all.

Thank You

The challenge this week at OWH is a Thank You card. This and the following cards will go out in my next box. I am going to go ahead and post some more. I was trying to use up some Basic Grey papers all in the same couple of lines. Some of the cards also used an OWH sketch challenge.

Using up small pieces of patterned paper. I hate to see them get passed up all the time.

Key to my heart

I stamped the background with Brilliance Galaxy Gold using a Stampendous stamp. The red heart is a flocked paper. Feels and looks very luxurious. I used a Nestability to cut it. The inset on the key was yellow so I recolored it with a Copic marker. I have enough of the red to make 5 cards.
