Love you Beautiful & Welcome

Today I have used the die cut heart that I used as a stencil for yesterdays
card. This is a brand new Die from 'Concord & 9th' and I can see I am going to
have so much fun with this die and of course it arrived just in time for
lots of Valentine cards.

I blended from 'Abandoned Coral' out to 'Worn Lipstick' Distress Inks
from the centre of the heart out. Once I was happy with the colour
I used the heart outline to blend'Spun Sugar' very lightly on the card front.

Then  I added 'Wink of Stella' all over the heart. Added a bit too much and
ended up with a big wet spot right where the solid heart goes
so luckily this covered the slight warping of the card as of course its not
watercolour cardstock. You can just see the sparkle here but its really
sparkly IRL.

Once it was dry I glued the die cut over the blended heart and then die
cut the 'beautiful' word (another Concord & 9th product) from gold mirror card.
To finish it off I stamped 'love you'.

Well this one is pretty self explanatory. New baby, new mum
so a Baby Shower is on the cards.

Coloured with Copics and a little bit of glitter Gelly Pen here and there.
Die cut two layers of the curved rectangle stitched die. Bright green under
the white as we don't know the sex of the baby so have gone neutral and
bright cause we all know I love bright.

Added the 'welcome' die cut again from gold mirror card (do you think I maybe really
like this gold!!!!). Finished off with a few acrylic dots. Stamped image is a
Stamping Bella which most of you would recognise anyway.

I'm beginning to think I'm the only one who didn't get that heart die. It makes a wonderful card. And the baby card is so cute and beautifully colored.
