Love is in the Air


I made a couple of CAS love cards yesterday using the first stamp set I ever bought. It's SU!'s Sketch It and I've hung onto it for years because I love the heart image I'm using today. The LOVE die is from PTI and I die cut a little snippet of Bo Bunny dsp with kissing love birds to fit into the heart. The heart was heat-embossed with white ep and the card base is GinaK bubble gum pink. The love die was cut from the back of a paper pad to add a little depth.


This is the same as the card above, just done in real red. These CAS cards are something you don't see from me too often, but sometimes I manage to surprise myself :)

I'll enter these in the Tuesday Throwdown #231 which is "love is in the air" as well as the Snippets Playground #163 which is to use snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and here's wishing you a fabulous Tuesday!

Those little love birds are so cute inside your sentiment heart. I love your first stamp and wish I could remember what stamp was my first to purchase.

Oh my gosh, I recognized that heart the moment I saw it! One of my first sets, too, but sadly, it's gone to greener pastures! LOVE what you've done to it!

That heart is definitely a keeper! I love your CAS cards--straight to the point, no messing around. That was a neat idea to fill in the O.

Oh, really lovely kissing birds, they made these cards fabulous!

I adore those little kissing birds. Just precious and appropriate. I have that set and it is also probably one of the first ones I purchased also. I'll have to dig it out. I don't know why you surprise yourself, you never surprise me, you do amaze me with you creativity but you don't surprise me. I expect fabulous from you all the time and you always deliver. Have a good night. Just made a big pot of pasta sauce, which will help to hold us over for the next couple of storms.

Fabulous CAS cards Carol. The way you used the designer paper heart cutout in the sentiment is inspired, and I love the heart stamp too.
