That's Amore!

Hello!  Gosh you guys!!  I'm SOO excited about the new Elzybells release coming up soon!  There are a ton of sneakpeaks out there today and they're ALL adorable!  I feel bad posting this card cuz it's not an Elzybell!! :D  Sadly, I'm not an instructor or designer for A Muse, just a HUGE fan!! :D

Here are some links to the new Elzybells sneakpeaks:




I've been in the Valentine mood lately and love all the cute cards with the Marvy scallop heart punches, but I don't have one of those punches yet!!  I looked at my LSS, but they were sold out.  So, I took 2 punched out Giga Scallop Ovals and put them together to make a heart.  Not my first choice, but it works!!  :D  I love the idea to put the heart brad in the center of a prima too, I got that idea from Michelle's blog!  I used a Black Prismacolor marker to make the polka dots on the pink heart brad so it would match the A Muse Polkadot Frame.  I can't remember which blog I saw it on, but the idea for the white circles in the scallops is from there, she called it a faux eyelet technique, you pierce or punch the little holes and then use your white gel pen to outline it!!  Very fun to do!! :D  All stamps by A Muse, Notecard by A Muse, Pink Passion and white CS from SU, ribbon by A Muse and May Arts?

Have a beautiful day!!!
