Make It Monday Challenge #48 & Greeting Card Set

Another Make It Monday Challenge! I am two for two, that may be a first!

Here is the info:

So I used my border die, but I used the negative of my new Heart Border Die from the December Release. 
I alternated the way I cut my heart border die 
(I even accidentally cut into the wrong plate while alternation, so please pay attention!!)

So here it is, I like it!  Took a little bit of work but it's super fun and colorful!

Supplies for BE MY VALENTINE
Paper: Kraft, Hawaiian Shore, Stampers Select White
Stamps: Tremendous Treats: Valentine
Dies: Heart Border Die & Mat Stack 4
Other: Various Copics, Twine from the Twinery, Red Stickles on the Heart

Next is a 8 piece card set I made for a friend for her birthday!  I cased a design used by one of the Design Team Members of PTI.  They used just Harvest Berries, but I added Stitches & Swirls as well for the background.  Then I matted with matching paper and die cut the smaller banner die for the sentiments.  These are from various Papertrey Ink Sets.  And finally, I added a little bling to each one.

Pure Poppy

Plum Pudding

Ripe Advocado

Aqua Mist

New Leaf

Simply Chartreuse

Summer Sunset

Spring Rain

Also, thanks to everyone who visits my little blog!  I am so appreciative of all your sweet and kind encouraging words & compliments!  I may not always leave a comment on your blogs (mom of 4, always on the run) but I do frequently visit them for inspiration!

PS: Valentines are mostly done for my girls, I bit the bullet and knocked them all out in 1 night.  They are not amazing, but are great for a 2nd & 3rd grade girl.  Simple 1 layer.... Post to come soon!
