Valentine's Day Cards 2013

Here are a few Valentine's Day cards I made at my recent crop.  I put one of them in a contest they were having and got 2nd place.  However there were only 2 people in the contest. My scrappy friend Robbie won that one.  She does wonderful cards. She deserved the win.  Congrats friend!  At least I got SOMETHING done this time. 

This is the one I entered into the contest. I think I "over-blinged" it.  Is that even possible? What do you think?  I was trying out a technique I am going to present in my technique video series coming soon...iris folding.  It was a bit time consuming but I think it turned out okay.  Practice makes perfect though huh?  I also made the flower and needed something else.  So I put the swirly bling in.  My son wound up giving this to his girlfriend.  She love it...especially the cameo in the middle of the heart.

 This little guy is a digi and came from Scrappin Doodles.  Isn't he the cutest?  He was already colored so I did not have to do it. I put glossy accents on his glasses and some stickles on the words and heart flower. He's just adorable!

I think this one is my favorite because it is simple and elegant looking.  It is also a digi from TLC. I just cut it out with a spellbinder and the hearts are a punch. I added lace trim and some bling.  Love it.

Here is a video so you can see them a little better.  Thanks for watching!!! ~Karen Sue
