Stuck On You

Monday, February 3, 2014

Good Morning!

It's February can you believe it?  

LOVE Month!

And Monday plus LOVE means

theres a scrumptious challenge at

The Pink Elephant today!


This week we have a wonderful photo of inspiration for you

to create lovely Valentines 
any other project your heart desires!

Look at all those great colors and images!

Chocked full of ideas!

Here is what it inspired me to create:


STAMPS: Postage stamp & arrows (Recollections); Digital Sentiment - I"m afraid I don't remember where I got this sentiment.  I've had it for many years.  I want to say Create with TLC or Whimsy Doodles but not sure.
PAPER: White, teal, cotton candy pink and wax lips red cardstock. Valentine tissue paper (behind suckers); DP-Yours Truly (Pebbles).
INK: Love Letter Red (Momento); Jet Black (Staz On).
EXTRAS: Kraft keepsake pocket (Recollections); Heart punch (EK Success); Heart die (Sizzix Bigz); Scallop rectangle (Spellbinders); Small oval punch (EK Success); Red heart doily; Q-tips for sucker sticks; 3D red heart stickers (Jolee stickers); mini Cellophane bag recycled from purchased craft supply; Red paper twine; Teal enamel dots (Recollections). 

My card started with the little cellophane bag of "suckers".  I found this in my stash a couple weeks ago.  I made them last year and then never used them.  I took 3D Jolee heart stickers and glued them on Q-tips (snipped off the cotton ends) and then used a cellophane bag from some other craft embellishment.

I bought the pocket folders last week and it just reminded me of a mailing envelope.  You can't see it very well, but I stuffed Valentine tissue paper behind the suckers and then added a heart cut from patterned paper to add some contrast.  I stamped the arrows going down the one side of the folder and the stamp in the middle.  I was going to add a little bling to the middle of my bow but then decided I didn't want to detract from the heart suckers.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

Now stop by The Pink Elephant and check out all my fellow DT's projects, then link up your own project and share it with us.  We would love to see how we've inspired you this week!

Love-ing Monday Blessings!
