Anyway, I made this one above for my mom. I pulled out a Hero Arts stamp that I bought years ago. I used my MS heart lace punch and some retired papers that I had not pulled out in a while... I felt like my mom would like that I dug into my stash - she is the queen of thrifty. Before I mailed this card, I added 2 half pearls on the red card stock where the left and right points of the Nesties frames are, and BOY did that make a difference. I just had to get the cards to the post office though, so I could not take more pictures of the cards after I added this embellishment.
These next 3 cards were born of inspiration from Sharon Johnson. I used a very simple layout to make 3 different cards with this adorable Love Puppy stamp from The Cat's Pajamas. As with my mom's card above, I added a red rhinestone to the top and bottom on the black Nestie between the point and the red circle. That made the world of difference, but I had taken the pics before I did that and I had to get to the post office, so I did not have time to re-take the pics. It really looked sooooo much better with the rhinestones... I wish you could see that.
I used the MS heart lace punch on this one. The white card stock showed through this hearts in front - nice touch.
The double heart image on this one and the one above is from Verve's Sweet Valentine set.
I stamped the image twice and cut out the heart and popped it up with Dimensionals. Looks great in person....
