Hubby's Valentine

 It's that time of year again - time to make a Valentine's card that I like, but that is masculine enough to give my husband. I've chucked some flowers in here - but he's a gardener, so I reckon I can get away with it. Thanks to Sunday Stamps Challenge 249 and As You See It Challenge 242 for getting me started! 

There's quite a bit going on in this card that I'm not sure will photograph well - I hope it doesn't just looked like I slapped some Very Vanilla together! 😀 I embossed the heart and the card front with different folders, and also cut one sentiment frame into another. 

Here's the card: 

Stampin' Up! ink (Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Cider), card (Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler), stamps (Awesomely Artistic, Petal Palette), dies (Tasteful Labels), embossing folders (Hammered Metal, Subtle) Hearts punches, Cherry Cobbler watercolour pencil. 
Other products: francheville rhinestones.

Paper Players and CAS Colours and Sketches

 With this card, I used two challenges as starting points: Paper Players 523 and CAS Colours and Sketches 402. These are not colours I'd naturally turn to, so it was fun to move out of my comfort zone. Similarly, I'm taking a while to get my head around the hydrangea suite - but having fun doing so. 

The card:

Ingredients: Stampin' Up! card (Whisper White, Misty Moonlight, Blackberry Bliss), ink (Misty Moonlight, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Memento Tuxedo Black, Stazon Black), Stamps (Hydrangea Haven, Needle and Thread for sentiment), Hydrangea dies, Textile Texture embossing folder, In Colour enamel dots, Bumblebee pen.
