Filled with Love

Today is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and we have a FUN sketch for you to try!  Everyone is welcome to stop by and play along!  Upload your creation to Inlink over on the site.  We're gearing up for the Preview Weeks starting on Sunday.  You won't want to miss signing up for the Early Bird Special, too!

It's not too late to order the Filled with Love Bundle!  Although, this stamp set was in the Holiday Mini, Stampin' Up! has made it available thru January 24th by purchasing the stamp set and Love Patterns (Real Red and Pretty in Pink Patterns Paper) as a bundle.  You also get a package of the Bitty Buttons FREE!  Just in time for Valentine's Day!  If you want to see it, click on my left sidebar widget and it will take you to a photo.


I started with a Real Red base of cardstock and layered on Pink Pirouette cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  I used the Two Scallop Square die and cut out the larger scallop square from the bundle Designer Paper.  I then layered Pink Pirouette inside and Whisper White that I stamped with a Pink Pirouette heart from Filled with Love.  I punched a small heart from the Red Glimmer Paper and placed it with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I stamped Be My Valentine with Real Red on Pink Pirouette, added small Rhinestone Jewels on top and bottom, punched with the 1" circle punch and layered on the 1 1/4" circle punch.  It is placed with Stampin' Dimensionals, too!.


Finally I took the lucious Real Red Satin Ribbon and wrapped it to the back, then added a big Real Red Satin bow on the front!  I'm planning on giving this to my hubby for Valentine's Day!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team has done with this sketch over on Create with Connie and Mary!

That polka-dot scallop square fits in so well with all of your elements. Such an elegant card!

This is just so pretty. I love it's richness but also it's simplicity. What a great card!
