Birthday card for my lovely daughter

This card was inspired by a card made by Maria Simms. It's made using the flower Splodge mask and stamped with a Clarity stamp verse. I cut part of the flower with a craft knife and placed a piece of co-ordinating vellum beneath. Unfortunately it didn't get to Canada on time which is disappointing.

Valentine card

This is the Valentine card I made for my husband this year. I used Kraft Card, Tim Holtz stamps and Wow Embossing powders - clear and black.

The message was stamped onto Kraft Card and cut out with a Spellbinders die. The heart shape was cut out using my Cricut machine. The man "bling" was made using Tando cogs purchased from Bee Crafty and coloured with Tim Holtz metallic Distress Stain.

By the way - he loved it!!!

I love entering the Wow embossing powder monthly challenge this will be my entry into their February challenge:
