Valentines

I always have fun making cards, but oh my goodness--I got hooked on PTI MIM Masked Heart Wreaths!  I've tried this technique with an oval & never liked the result.  Could be I didn't stamp images close enough together or use small enough ones.  The PTI sets I used are Garden Gild, Fancy Foliage, BG Basics Text Style, Quilled Elegance & Lovely Layers.  I used a bunch of PTI inks & Versafine Vintage Sepia & white pigment ink.  The love die cut is also PTI & 2 of the cards have a sentiment from SSS.  I didn't have the right size heart die, so used the tried & true grade school technique of folding a piece of paper in half & using scissors.  The white die cut is brushed with WOS & the card with distressed edges is spritzed with Perfect Pearls.  I may not be done yet--haha!  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

I love this, Greta. Your cards turned out so beautifully. I tried a card using this technique, and mine wasn't so much of a success. Great job, and thanks for sharing this with us.

These are all so beautiful. It's amazing how changing the colors can change the whole look of the card and stamps. I like the soft look but the black is so dramatic and really catches my eye.
