3 New Cards & a Fix

Still lots of products in my sale pages.

I was about to put away the Valentine I made for next year.  It hit me that it didn't look finished, so I fixed it!  Here's the picture I posted a few days ago.
It's smaller than A2, so all I had to do was use a black A2 mat.  Now it looks ready to mail & this picture has more accurate color.  
Now for my new cards, starting with an entry for the Uniko 8th BD Celebration.  I love the beautifully modern poinsettia in the Uniko Season of Beauty set.  It can also be a beautiful flower for any season.    
I stamped the bold image in Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender & the outline image (purposely not lined up) in Versafine Clair Morning Mist & Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  The flower centers & the sentiment from Altenew Floral Frame were stamped in Morning Mist.  I just stamped the sentiment 3 times to make it a bit darker.  Finished off with gray & lavender splatters.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Time Out.

I love silhouette images, so I used my TCP gc to get Simple Blooms which is no longer available.  The TPC Tuesday Challenge is to use stencils.
I used a brick one by Magenta with DI pumice stone.  The images were stamped in Delicata Emerald Green & the sentiment from the same set was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist.  I used a PTI die & Weathervane cardstock to make the frame.  Finished off with silver glitter Nuvo Drops.  I'm also entering SSS Monday

Finally is my entry for SSS Flickr, SSS Wednesday & Flickr Love Handmade Cards.  I used DI tattered rose & peeled paint with the SSS Bouquet of Roses Stencil.  Next I spread white Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel--such gorgeous sparkle!
The colors are soft, but very apparent in person.  I silver embossed the sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  9. The black matting layer sure does finish off your valentine's card Greta x. Such a contemporary and fabulous way to use the poinsettia stamp on your first card.
