Sweetheart Vine & Trip To Victoria, British Columbia

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I am using this as a Valentine card but after I got it made I thought it looked more like a Christmas design.  Oh well.

We took a weekend trip over to Victoria, British Columbia, gosh it was a lot of fun.  We stayed at Delta Hotel by Marriott   (club level booking gets you free breakfast and dinner items) which is located right near the harbor.  At night the holidays lights across the harbor are stunning.  I have included just a few pictures below.  We went to Butchart Gardens and walked around in the rain, they provide umbrellas for your use in the park.  We had High Tea at the The  Dining Room restaurant, that was my first experience having high tea and my husband and I just loved it.  You sit in an enclosed greenhouse surrounded by orchids and tropical plants and enjoy tea and a three tier tray of delicious food.  Then at night the gardens light up and it is just magical.   By the way the park was almost empty not sure if it was the time of year or the weather.

Stringing You Some Valentines

Greetings, today's design was quick and easy.  I just die cut the hearts, branch, words and colored the bird.

Dee's Distinctively - Chickadee (just used the small wing)
Memory Box - Happy Valentine's Day & Perched Reed Bird
Nuvo Collection Aqua Shimmer - Glitter pen
Penny Black - Heart String
Poppy Stamps - Trailing Vine
Spellbinders - Large Squares

I am using two new products one is Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss.  I really love the way it adds a glittery appearance on my cards.

Second I purchased Ultrafine Tip Applicator Bottles which I filled with glue and I can't believe how easy it is to now apply a small amount of glue to my projects.

Wishing You a Special Day

Greetings and Happy New Year to everyone.  I thought I would create a fun and easy window style card.  I first folded a white piece of card stock in half and used a bone folder to crease the edge.  Then I trimmed the paper to 5" X 6".  I placed the Spellbinders Matting Basics B (2.625" X 3.625" die) sort of offset on the paper and cut it out. I die cut the Poppy Stamps Heart Lattice Background and attached it to the front backside of the  card.  From there I just made the flowers and dotted the center of each heart.  I used the shadow method for the label by die cutting it three times, white, yellow and pick and gluing them as shown.

I am using this as a Valentine card but really you could use this design for almost anything.
